I am a resident of California and have a question about the

Hello. I am a resident of California and have a question about the "Right to Rescind" law as it pertains to home improvement. My wife had a representative from 3 day blinds out to measure and give an estimate on new blinds for the Windows. I was sitting nearby for most of the interaction, including the point when the rep tried to "close" her and she said that she still needed to shop around and felt uncomfortable making such a large commitment without at least doing research. This was a good couple/few weeks ago. The part I missed, which she thought I heard, was when she allowed the rep to talk her into ordering the blinds. Of course, this included her signing that she read and agreed to the terms and conditions, which is where the 3 day right to rescind notice is stated. The rep didn't leave hard copy of a contract that day so, again, I didn't have cause to know a transaction took place. He did email a copy to my wife's personal email, but we do not in any way, share that email. The way the contract reads, it's appears as though 3 day blinds knows what they're doing in assuring customers are locked in once that 3 day right to rescind period passes. My question, based on some reading I've done, is shouldn't that contract need to have been signed by me as well? Or, at very least, a copy of the contract my wife signed sent to me? We are married though technically my name is ***** ***** the deed to the home (not sure if that would make a difference). Thanks so much!

I am the former CEO of a nonprofit corporation. The corporation is involved in a lawsuit where I am personally named as a defendant as well in a separate docket number. Fast forwarding to post-trial and entering of the judgement, the board chairman somehow talked to a personal acquaintance of his that practices family law in a state different from the state where the aforementioned case was adjudicated.This lawyer told the board member that the case could be dismissed because she believed the notices had not been properly delivered, but she never talked to me, the person to whom the notices were actually delivered. Never mind that we were well past the deadline for appeal as stated in both states' rules of civil procedure, and never mind that this lawyer is not licensed in the state where the case was heard, and that this particular area of law is outside of her normal practice area.In short this lawyer was able to collect some fees by telling the board chair that she could do something that she knew she could not do, i.e., she preyed upon the board chair's desperation and naivete. She admitted to me that the only reason she took the case was that she was able to bill the corporation for a trip to the city where here grand kids are located, thus she used the corporation for pecuniary gain.Is this grounds for a complaint to the state bar ethics commission.

My property management company was contracted to take

Hello, my property management company was contracted to take pictures when listing the property for rent. They were also supposed to conduct inspections of the property every six months; they did not do either and the amount I was able to rent for suffered. Does this breach of contract entitle me to damages for lost rental income? I was only keeping them around until they finished processing a tenant eviction through to judgement, but it has been two years and they cannot explain why that has taken so long either. Do you think that I have a case against All County Community Property Management? I was going to report them for ethics violations with Property Management Boards as well, thinking that might help. Thank you for your time.

My ex live in girlfriend, is a blackjack dealer at a local

My ex live in girlfriend, is a blackjack dealer at a local casino. I live in Las Vegas. During our extremely short term relationship, during a fight, she called and initiated a chargeback on a purchase we had mutually agreed on. This lead to a domino effect, because the transaction was for about $1800 and was to China, to purchase toys, as I had taught her about a business reselling item during christmas time. When she initiated this chargeback, it lead to my account being frozen for months and to this day I have restricted access, not to mention the contact that was extremely profitable refuses to do business with me anymore.The ex-gf signed a notarized Affidavit to cancel the chargeback and under the portion of "I am now accepting this share back with paypal because of the following circumstance" she wrote "This transaction was completed by self".Now, I'm upset, because my college degree is in ethics, and I feel very strongly about right and wrong, and she literally called a financial institution, created a false report, then had a change of heart, and ended up signing the affidavit admitting to canceling the chargeback because the transactions "was completed by self".She is licensed with the Nevada gaming commission as a blackjack dealer, I am wondering, what if anything I can, or should do given these circumstances, I feel it is wrong that she can make a false report, that I am still feeling the repercussions of to this day due to her whimsical nature.
