I had an idea for an event. I constructed the entire thing. I brought someone on board to help me work on it and now she has stolen my idea from verbiage about the event to website and pursuing the event without me. Can I sue? Can I issue a cease and desist letter? What are my options?

A legal issue has arisen regarding furnishings in a one

A legal issue has arisen regarding furnishings in a one month condo rental in Solana Beach CA. The condo is a two bedroom occupied by my wife and I with consent for guests. The issue surrounds the owner's removal of a reclining chair immediately before we arrived which I find to be essential to use and enjoyment of the property. I paid the $9000+ fees rental in advance. The “comfort seating” which remains in the living room consists of one loveseat and one swivel rocker to which two very basic outdoor dining chairs were added as substitute for the recliner. The rental contract does not address the issue of furnishings. My preferred solution at this point would be to prorate the rent and terminate the rental but I don't know what my rights are. An email exchange encapsulates the issues:[Me] The recliner chair was apparently removed shortly before our arrival because the imprint from the base was still fresh on the carpet when we arrived. The outside chairs brought in from the porch are not a reasonable substitute. We are down to comfort seating which is not satisfactory, especially for a $10K/month rental. Please return or replace the recliner.[Agent]I finally spoke with the owner, as he is out of the country. He stated that the chair was rusting at the base and it was starting to discolor the carpets. He decided to discarded it. He is not ready as of now to replace the item[Me] I understand discarding the piece for discoloring the carpets. I do not understand his reluctance to replace it with something equivalent. The condo which we agreed to rent included a love seat, a swivel rocker, and a swivel recliner. That arrangement was here when we rented it last July, that arrangement remained on the website when we rented for this July, and that arrangement remained on the website as of this morning when I downloaded the images. We believe the owner has an obligation to provide what was represented when we rented the condo.We are generally inclined to ignore minor inconveniences; however this is not minor. A recliner is the only way I can use my laptop in comfort and neither the love seat or swivel rocker afford the kind of seating and leg support I need for extended use of the laptop. Nor is the seating at the dining table, even when I substitute the office chair from the MBR or the seating at the bar. This is not a satisfactory situation and it needs to be resolved.[Agent] I spoke with my Broker in regards ***** ***** recliner chair that was removed from the living room. At times the furnishings can change in the property and we do not necessarily take new photos when this occurs. The owners have the right to remove furnishings from the property without taking new marketing photos. Being that he is out of the country, he is not in the position to actively purchase a new chair.As the owner stated in his last email, he feels there are plenty of comfortable indoor/outdoor chairs available to provide reasonable comfortable seating for 6-7 adults.

My 17 year old daughter sold an animal to someone out of

My 17 year old daughter sold an animal to someone out of state who now wants to take us to small claims court. As her mother I played no role whatsoever in the transaction and the said animal is not registered in my name. The plaintiff lives in Oregon and we live in Colorado. It was an internet transaction. There was no verbal or written agreement about his breedability. This person is now filing a small claims case in Oregon against me. Is this possible?

Someone invested in my inventory at a wholesale price with

Someone invested in my inventory at a wholesale price with the expectation that they would be paid back with profit. Unfortunately, shortly after they invested the money this product wasn't selling online like when the opportunity presented itself and I was stuck with 4000 units of this product (80k value) . I owe him more than $90,000 but I don't have any money. These business transactions were done through my business account ( I have an LLC).I currently live in NY and he lives in Utah. I plan to move to another state this month. My questions are;1) If he refuses to accept the inventory back that didn't sell (he alluded to only accepting cash back), is it reasonable to say that he'd have a really hard time trying to get a judgement against me?

In October 2015 my adult children found me unconscious and

In October 2015 my adult children found me unconscious and called for an ambulance. When the ambulance arrived, my adult children told them to take me to Hendricks County Hospital (which is in my network). They said no, and took me to a hospital that is not in my network. Even though this hospital was out of network, my insurance did pay a small amount and the balance was applied to plan discount. Because St. Francis hospital in Mooresville, IN is not in network with CareSource Just***** Francis hospital is not accepting the plan discount of $24,407.57 and is billing me for this. This seems so wrong to me - if the ambulance driver would have taken me to Hendricks Hospital in Danville, I wouldn't have this problem. It will take me years to pay this bill and probably, not in my lifetime for that matter. Is there anything I can do?

In Rhode Island I made a verbal agreement with a person to

In Rhode Island I made a verbal agreement with a person to get paid a consulting fee for work that was provided by my expertise and procurement. According to our agreement this person is supposed to pay $50,000 upon being awarded his first service contract with the companies i procured and then a certain percentage based upon gross contract prices per contract to last the duration of the contracts and to continue on a monthly basis even in the event the contracts get renewed. He's had a written contract from me in his hand for a couple of months now and keeps tip toeing around discussing or signing it. Well now I know he is getting awarded several contracts from one of the companies I brought to him and I cannot get a response. I think he feels as though he's got the jobs locked down and doesn't need my services anymore. That's why I ask about written contracts in RI. I even have texts from him describing the situation as well.JA: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet I was just stewing over this and I figured I would just ask about the legality of the verbals in RI. I'm in real estate and I know verbals do not stand up in most real estate matters but this has nothing to do with real estate.JA: OK. The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: It has to do with Procuring janitorial services in the healthcare industry and at this point includes several hundred surgery centers across the USA including HI and PR. Along with introductions to Healthcare Giant GPO's that could amount to several hundred million dollars per year in janitorial contracts. And a percentage of that comes to me because over the course of about 12 months I put all the deals together. Like I said I'm sitting and stewing so I googled !JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
