I own a database consulting company. mortgage company
I own a database consulting company. For this mortgage company customer,we remote onto their server and set up an application and may also need to troubleshoot the application from time to time with their IT departments assistance. My company,Q2, is an LLC. They insist on this language for confidentiality but I am not comfortable with it. It seems to imply they can not only seek monetary damages but limitless types of damages if they perceive a breach of confidentiality. I have been in business for 15 years and have never had an issue along these lines. Since I am an LLC I know that mans they cannot come after my personal property,but what else could they come after? My office assets,ie office bldg, furniture,computers etc? * Confidentiality and Non DisclosureQ2 Database Consulting shall not sell or make any CUSTOMER data, including CUSTOMER's consumer data, available to any third party, nor will Q2 Database Consulting archive or store data to which Q2 Database Consulting may have access. Q2 Database Consulting shall treat as confidential and shall not disclose or use for the benefit of any person other than CUSTOMER information made available or disclosed to CUSTOMER as a result of or related to the Agreement.Notwithstanding any provision herein to the contrary, Q2 Database Consulting understands and agrees that money damages may not be a sufficient remedy for any breach or threatened breach of this provision and that the CUSTOMER shall be entitled to seek specific performance and injunctive relief as remedies for any such breach or threatened breach.

I am writing my memoirs of 38 years of anesthesia practice
I am writing my memoirs of 38 years of anesthesia practice and am discussing a number of cases .I have permission of husband to discuss his wifes( now deceasedcase 30+ years ago , Most other cases 25 to 35 years ago are anonymous and discussed for medical interest. One noteworthy case 27 years ago concerns a carotid endarterectomy that I cancelled due to recent food consumption . The political controversy is the main topic here, The patient in his 70's then is most certainly dead now. I also mention several technical challenges of regional anesthesia due to extremes of size 2 or three years ago. Patients name and doctors are omitted on all these. Conceivably some health workers may recall the cases, but identification of patient would be difficult. What standard of anonymity am I held to in writing memoirs ?The goal is to discuss interesting medical issues
I live in Norman, OK in mobile home park. Our lease (we own
I live in Norman, OK in mobile home park. Our lease (we own the home) for the lot is 4 years. We have been here 2 years & 3 months. We were never informed of prior year flooding and we had flood following Spring and lost 2 cars and had $7,000 in damages to home. Can we get out of lease due to the nondisclosure of flooding history? I've read the landlord has to disclose if there has been flooding in past 5 years of lease signing. I want to move because I'm terrified of flooding again. When it flooded here, 3 mobile homes on my street toppled into each other and were ruined. Thank you for your time. What do I do?
I lawyer handled a criminal case 2-4 years ago, and I am
Hi,My name is***** lawyer handled a criminal case for me 2-4 years ago, and I am still on probation. He has been paid a great deal in full, but does not seem invested in representing me to adjust my sentence now. Requesting and helping me reduce my sentence was what he stated he would do, at this point in time. Again, he seems not to be interested in doing this. I requested a copy of our contract, which he says he cannot provide. I have a copy of the payments he received from me, which again were very substantial ($50,000), though he said he "may not have a contract for me." What can I do to ensure I get the representation I paid for, or if not, see my money refunded?Thank you,Nick
I have a potential client who apparently filed as Head of
I have a potential client who apparently filed as Head of Household and reported his wife did not live with him, when she did. He reported kids that he was supporting. We are apparently looking at several years of Earned Income Credit fraudulently received. The client does not have the funds on hand to pay all these years.I believe these returns were done by a CPA or preparer who knew better. Also, I believe the client padded his self employment income to get more EINC. Can I file his amended returns without risk personally if he is honest now? How about him? Can he file and make a voluntary disclosure? He is not, to the best of my knowledge, under any investigation for this. It appears IRS is clueless. I am looking for the best realistic way to help him and not put myself in a bad situation. He has decided he would LIKE to come clean, but seems to have no idea of the magnitude of his situation. If this were found out independently by IRS, would he likely face criminal prosecution? Do they usually prosecute such? What are the chances they would be all over him if he voluntarily disclosed but lacks the money to pay back what he got? I expect I will be advising him to see a lawyer before I touch his returns. Do you concur? Or can he file all the years in question, voluntarily disclose, and walk away with an installment agreement or some such??? I would like this answer reviewed by a tax lawyer if at all possible. I believe his wife must have filed MFS. She still shares a house with client and kids, but there is little if any love left in relationship.

My ex partner, a law student, and s new girlfriend, a
My ex partner, a law student, and his new girlfriend, a paralegal, are suing me what I believe is a ridiculous lawsuit, because they know they can and they think I would have to hire an attorney. He also owes me over $5000.I am limping along as a pro per. They have recorded me illegally, told me they would request "sanctions" when they did not receive my fax on time and forced me to drive back to the office at night to re-fax, lied in her summary of our meet and confer, and started sending my emails to my ex- attorney. When I asked them multiple times to stop, and that I was turning him into the Bar, they forwarded that email to him as well, and he has since visited my LinkedIn profile. They have done much more, and bullied me every step of the way.Is there any way to let the Judge know about all of this? He is known not to tolerate bullying, and is fair.

Regarding: "you can file suit costs and your damagesView more legal questions
Regarding: "you can file suit for your costs and your damages directly, as well as sue for harassment and for 'public disclosure of private facts', specifically their forward of your sensitive information to third parties with no other reason than to hurt you and your reputation...-they CAN legally share it....but doing so without good grounds can be seen as simply injurious to you.What would be the cause of action? Civil Harrasment? That would be a separate lawsuit or do I add it as a Cross complaint? Can I ask for sanctions from the judge? My demurrer was already overruled due to an incompetent lawyer, quite frankly. Thanks for your responses.
