I had talked to a guy who owned a lien on a friends house.

I had talked to a guy who owned a lien on a friends house. He represented that if he sold me the lien that I got the property. I told him ok, I just wanted my lawyer to review the papers. So, he drew up a contract for the lien. 1. it was more than what we had agreed to. 2. My lawyer said that it was bad deal since if I thought I was buying a property I wasn't actually getting a property, nor could he actually guarantee that. So, I said no deal. Now he saying that we were trying to defraud him and that someone owes him money for the lawyer. He's also claiming that my friend was committing fraud. What should i do here?

I am interested in information about starting a public

I am interested in information about starting a public initiative in Florida to end the Florida Bear Hunt. Although the majority of citizens were against the first hunt in over 20 years, we were not heard. I know hunting has weird protections by law. Is it possible to get this on a Florida ballot? I know other states have ended part of the cruelty (baiting, bow and arrow hunting, etc..) in this way. Please advise on my options. Also advise on first steps of action. Thank you.

There is a law called the Assistive Technology Act of 2004.

There is a law called the Assistive Technology Act of 2004. It states that states are to "ensure individuals with disabilities reap the benefits of the technological revolution to participate fully in life in their communities." It goes on to define "services" as researching, finding, and acquiring this technology for individuals. However, I have not seen any evidence that this law is being enforced or implemented. The Department of Rehabilitation is supposed to enforce it but when I called I was referred to this non-profit website that gave information about the law but nothing else. As far as I could see the only "technology" they will help me acquire is a used walker. Isn't this a disability/civil rights violation if the law isn't being enforced?

QUESTION ABOUT INCLUDING MANY NAMES IN A PIECE OF LEGISLATION My

QUESTION ABOUT INCLUDING MANY NAMES IN A PIECE OF LEGISLATIONMy organization is about to launch a "grass roots" lobbying campaign at the federal level. Let's say for the sake of discussion that we are successful and the House of Representatives and Senate begin drafting the legislation. We would like to have the names of all our contributors and staffers included in the actual bill. The number could total in the tens of thousands.My question is:If Congress was agreeable to putting the names in the bill in the first place, under the rules would they be able to include these names?Put another way: is there any specific rule that would preclude the inclusion of these names even though the House/Senate wanted them?
