I had a small landscaping business and a guy got hurt and I
I had a small landscaping business and a guy got hurt and I had no WC insurance. I lost at the hearing and now am being ordered to deposit a large sum of money to the WC trustee or post a bond within 10 days. I won't be able to pay or post a bond. Can you explain the legal process that will occur when I don't pay?
My son is being charged nearly $50K in restitution to an insurance
My son is being charged nearly $50K in restitution to an insurance company for the subsidized housing apartment he lived in. He is mentally challenged and thought setting a fire in the bathtub was a good idea instead of taking the trash out. Dumb yes. The housing authority staff said on site that he thought it wouldn't be more than $15K to repair the damages. Fair enough. At the sentencing the DA provided a very general estimate of repair that included replacing all the appliances and kitchen cabinets! The fire was no where near it and was out before the fire crew arrived so there was no water damage and very little smoke damage. It galls me that there may be fraud going on here at my son's expense. He works part time at McDs so you can imagine how he'll never get it paid off. I contacted the PA housing & redevelopment agency who forwarded my message to the insurance company. The rep was zero interested stating that the monies were paid out and the case is closed. I'm stumped as to why they aren't even the least interested in the fact that they may have been ripped off for $30,000.00. What's my next step or is it truly a closed matter?
I was honorably separated from the Army in 2004. Even though
I was honorably separated from the Army in 2004. Even though I complained about headaches from an IED blast and symptoms of PTSD. I was not afforded the opportunity to get medical or mental health treatment. I think because we were a reserve unit the chain of command was more concerned about getting home than staying at Ft Bragg because of a medical issue. Can I petition to be medically retired?
I was fired from the federal job (FDIC). I had to file MSPB
I was fired from the federal job (FDIC). I had to file MSPB within 30 days from the day when I was fired. I did not. My fault. The MSPB judge decided not to hear my case. I want to appeal.There are two issues: (1) Late filing (2) The case (I was covered by the union contract, but fired illegally)The main issue is (2). But, MSPB did not hear my case because of (1)Will the appeal court review (1) only since (1) is the reason why I was lost (sort of)?Will the appeal court will focus only on (2)? (1) only applies to MSPB. And it is over.In the firing procedure the FDIC broke the union contract (NTEU).Thanks.
In efforts to get prejudgement interest from a case already
In efforts to get prejudgement interest from a case already won in court the defense is stating I must abide by the Kenneco supreme court case 96-0244. Is this the current and most applicable means to calculate prejudgement interest?
Washington State Department of Labor and Industries issued
Washington State Department of Labor and Industries issued 6 electrical citations to me and my company. The fines totaled $49,300. The Department demanded a $1,200 dollar appeal fee in order for me to defend myself against these citations. I informed them I wanted to appeal but did not have the $1,200. They would not allow my appeal to go forward without the $1,200. I am filing a civil rights complaint under 42 U.S.C in federal court. Is there case history to support my claim the State of Washington deprived me of my right to due process, by denying me a chance to appeal these citations simply because I could not pay the appeal fee? If so what cases are they?
Re: federal appellate court... Im appellant pro se, and thereView more legal questions
Re: federal appellate court... I'm appellant pro se, and there are, I believe, nine appellees, represented by three different attorneys. I've filed the Appellant's Brief, and now have copies of four appellee briefs that I must reply to within the next week. My question is, as none of them filed Appeals or cross-claims or anything, can they list "issues" that have nothing to do with the issues I presented? (No room left in this box to give an example.)
