My son tried to start a club on his high school campus. It was a controversial club,a Trump club, that not one teacher wanted to be an advisor of. There are 60 clubs on campus and 50 members of faculty. Not one teacher signed on. My son later claimed that his inability to get an advisor was a violation of the equal access act.Finally, the superintendent said, you can meet on campus, but would have to• pay a rental fee for the classroom• purchase a 2 million dollar insurance policy• sign a contract.Since all student clubs must be student run without no adult influence except by an advisor in a supervisory capacity were his rights violated? Was it discriminatory?Can a minor enter into a legally binding contract with a third party?Help! Don't know what to do

I attend Herzing University Orlando campus whose corporate office is located in Wisconsin. Herzing is a private, non-profit, secular University. I have been suspended for speech related accusations (asking too many questions) and am wondering if the state of Florida protects freedom of speech at private universitiesJA: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?Customer: WisconsinJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: to whom?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have also been accused of sending a text message which includes plans to harm an instructor, which I did not do, and have not been allowed to see said message or know it's contents. Additionally, I was not alerted to any allegations prior to walking into a meeting that I was told was regarding a grade dispute, and then having a pretyped letter read to me by the dean stating alegations and indicating the suspension. All of this is contrary to the student handbook as far as how suspension proceedings are supposed to occur

My neighbor has been bothering me and my Airbnb guests—them, mostly with unwanted questions. Problem is, I really don't have much proof. I haven't even asked them to make statements. And other than some video clips of him opening my trash can to put small bits of trash into, there's nothing really on the video especially since having the audio on is (to my belief) illegal.I would like to apply for a restraining order against this neighbor contacting me and any of my Airbnb guests.Shall I wait until I get some written and signed statements from one or more of my Airbnb guests? Or what success will I have if I simply ask the court for a restraining order based solely on my stated issues (bothering my guests, trying to get WiFi passwords, etc.)?

I have a situation where someone of whom I have never met or spoken to ,has put outright lies on Yelp.He has never been a customer of mine and I have all the proof,i.e. documentation ,emails that he was no part of the business transaction that went on.....his lies are hurting my business,and the fact that they are all false statements is libel.I know Yelp has the freedom of speech on it's side but that does not include lies and Yelp removed it once ,then he put it back up and now they leave it up.Also since I don't advertise with Yelp they have since removed 5 star reviews and left his lies up.I have asked repeatedly to remove his comments that they refuse to.The statement even starts of with "a blond friend of mine" which indicates that it wasn't him that brought the car in.She signed all the paperwork authorizing 2 repairs and even sent me an email asking for one to be done...I don't know who he is,he is neither a boyfriend or spouseJA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: californiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have only contacted Yelp many times for now,but they don't seem to care.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'm looking to sue him and/or Yelp
