I recently got a speeding ticket in my home town sanford

Hi, i recently got a speeding ticket in my home town sanford maine. I am thinking of contesting the ticket because i was not in the wrong. I was driving on a double lane road that merged into one at the end. Well i sped up to safely merge because there was a man in my blind spot that i knew about. at the last minute he stepped on it to pass by me. The officer then pulls us both over accusing us of racing. I denied and said i was trying to keep my spot in traffic when he went flying by me during the merge. The officer then admitted to how he got the other guy on radar but not me, assuming i was going similar speed. I don't feel i should have the same punishment as the man who was the cause of it all.

I moved into an apartment and the landlord did not ask for

I moved into an apartment and the landlord did not ask for references or background check. I did not disclose my husband was sex offender. When the landlord found out, because my husband and I were homeless for 56 days my husband was arrested. The landlord said my husband could not return. I asked for something from my landlord so my husband could get help from Social Services upon release from jail. He gave me a hand written note that was not legal according to SS. so they refused to help him. So I had to allow my husband to return to my apartment. Now the landlord said we have to move but said if he evicts us he will keep my security deposit, is this legal for him to do?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: New York August 11 2016JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: He came into the apartment on August 22 to do a insurance inspection so can see it was well kept. We only moved in on June 30 2016

Mom is 101 years old. Went on vacation, stayed in a VRBO

Mom is 101 years old. Went on vacation, stayed in a VRBO rental, entry way had one step down to L/R, Mom took a mis-step and fell on the marble floor. Fractured pelvis and sacrum. Hospitalized for 8-days and in a life care rehab facility for 9 weeks. She lives with me (her daughter) and is back at home. Owner of the VRBO is an attorney. Mom has Medicare A and Federal Retirement Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Most bills have been paid. Her out of pocket co-pays are around $10,000. It is my understanding the property should be insured with a small amount of medical coverage if someone is hurt on the premises. First told, it was being turned into insurance company. Then given name of insurance company, who did not insure the property. Given another name of insurance company who indicated policy had been cancelled on 04-04-16 and the accident occurred on 04-29-16. Received text from VRBO owner there was no insurance and he is not required to have insurance. My belief is he uses the VRBO as his residence as well as a VRBO rental. Property is located in the Black Forest in Monument CO. Believe this is a possible case for small claims court? However, would feel more comfortable knowing how to proceed. Thank you.

Buyer and seller ready to close on 8 ohio parcels. Buyer

Buyer and seller ready to close on 8 ohio parcels. Buyer discovers roof damages from recent storm. Title charge have been generated from the title work. Seller wants to close asap and seller has filed insurance claims. The insurance "should" cover; however, how can the closing take place and still protect the buyers interests with rights to the insurance claims ? If insurance does not cover, then buyer will want some considerations for the damaged roofs. What options do we have to close now ?
