Have I (an individual private citizen) broken a State of Texas

Have I (an individual private citizen) broken a State of Texas law (or any law) by forwarding via email the notes of a State of Texas, Dept of Parks and Rec public meeting including the names of those who gave personal testimony and a list of the names, addresses, phone numbers and emails of members of the public who attended the meeting? These notes were sent to me as a person who attended the meeting upon my request to the State of Texas Parks and Rec staff member who conducted the meeting. These notes were also sent to all "Working Group" members who are part of a public process of updating a specific Texas Park Public Use Plan. I shared the notes via email with other members of the public who I hoped would be interested in providing their input to the public input process for the Public Use Plan update. Thank you

Hi there, does anyone know a lawyer who has experience with

Hi there, does anyone know a lawyer who has experience with a case against ebay.com because of determined buyer-protection? Please let me know. Thank You very much. Best regards, MichaelAdditional information/case-description:Ebay.com /headquarter located in San Jose denied the refund of my payment for 3 through ebay.com purchased items.Value is approx. 27.100.- USD.Before I have placed the payment through Moneybookers/SKRILL I have received the written confirmation from Ebay that buyer.protection is valid & active.Ebay-Terms & conditions according the Ebay-buyer-protection were completely fulfilled through me.Nevertheless Ebay.com - in my understanding illegally - determined/denied my eBay-buyer-protection-cases.So now it's time to start the legal-process against ebay.Inc., because (for example) of illegally determined Buyer Protection (?).To do this I can send You the various records of the case / historically treated chronologically. To make it easier for You to review the case, I have set up the following table of contents which I will send to the lawyer who will represent me in this case:PDF document page Contents 1-14 + 17-25 Correspondence via mail / FAX to eBay from 08 August-05. July 2012 including the mail from Royal Mail (International) verifying the presented Shippment-receipts15 +16 eBay-case-summary26 eBay-Buyer-protection-confirmation for eBay-item-no. 230783958216/eBay-case-no.(NNN) NNN-NNNN+ eBay-item-no. 230782760312/eBay-case-no.(NNN) NNN-NNNN/div>27-36 eBay item descriptions + documentation of the eBay-checkout-process (including the eBay-proof that payment has been made with Skrill!)37 eBay buyer-protection-confirmation for eBay-item-no. 230790455614/eBay-case-no.(NNN) NNN-NNNN/div>40-46 eBay buyer-protection-policy47-50 Description of my eBay account "0711vincent" / eBay account master data51-64 Documentation / confirmation of my Skrill-paymentsOf course eBay.com was not the selling party - that's what they will try to implement - which is true.BUT: eBay.com is offering the trading-platform including an insurance for buyers - their so called eBay-buyer-protection-programm. This "kind of insurance" was refused from eBay.com to me although all the conditions for the fulfillment of this buyer-protection-program are and were completely given AND confirmed from eBay's side.Furthermore, I would like to inform You that I have already brought the case on 09.08.2012 via email as a complaint to the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) for display. The FTC's case no. is: 39575940. Case-details are not yet submitted to the FTC. The FTC received currently only the amount of damage (27 100 -. USD) and a short case-history-resume.May I ask You kindly to inform me about the following:1. What costs do I have to expect from Your side in the case of a legal-process against eBay.Inc. in San Jose and are You entiteled to represent me in California?2. What are the legal (court-)costs I have to expect at the court in San Jose (?)?3. How is my reliable legal position in this case - sustainable investigated?4. Will the necessary costs of running this process (court costs and your costs) in additionbe be refunded from eBay.Inc to me if the court will decide in my favor?Or will the process - as usual in the United States - will find place under the principle that each party shall bear its own costs of process? That would be very annoying and even incomprehensible, because the evidences are, in my opinion, absolutely with no doubt!About how to proceed:Firstly - I would welcome it, of course - if You would write to the eBay.Inc.-"Legal Department" in San Jose a letter "as a final warning" and this would be sent to the persons acting in charge. In this leter the next legal steps will be shown them clearly - and it will inform them about a final deadline for the amicable settlement of this case.If eBay.Inc should "remain stubbornly" & will continue to refuse my refunds of 27.100.- USD within a short period of time to my Skrill account (or alternatively Paypal account)[email protected] the legal-process has to be started.I would also suggest, of course, to publish this case additionally in the Internet to put further pressure on eBay.Inc.However, I am not aware whether it is permissible in the U.S. at all to report a pending court case to the public - you would advise me accordingly.The 4th Case, which I had not opened on time at eBay.com and unfortunately & obviously because of this eBay.Inc. can not be sued (purchase-price 8.300.- USD) - I was traveling at that time and it was simply technically not possible to open an eBay-buyer-protection-case - so I'll probably should open a legal-case against the seller in England for this amount plus a compensation-fee because of an act of serious fraud. I am happy to clarify any questions that may occur at any time and look forward to your reply.Best regards XXXXX XXXXX / Germany,Michael T.

Problem getting refund from Travel Insurance. In March of

Problem getting refund from Travel Insurance. In March of 2010, I booked a cruise on Princess Cruises for my friend and I. My husband has just passed away and I thought it would be therapeutic. Time passed. My health was not great and I was still exhausted and upset about losing Charlie (after a long illness) so I went to see my Arizona doc who suggested I not take the cruise which was to depart June 19th. I called The Cruise Web, Inc, through whom I had booked. Their Travel Protection Information - one page - said the Benefits of purchasing the Cruise Web's recommended Travel Protection Policy was (#1) "Trip Cancellation Protection." I paid $800 each for this "protection". However, I was asked for a letter from my doctor; he complied and I sent it off. I received a one line refusal from a company called iTravel - mailed from Sweden. They referred to a Group Travel Insurance Certificate - which I never got (we weren't part of any group) "Section 5, Exclusions 'We will not pay for any Illness, Injury, or Loss by or as a result of 12. Any emotional, psychological, mental or nervous disorder'. Again this came from Sweden altho the company had a box number in Indianapolis. They stated that they would review it if I wrote. Altho this insurance ad was a part of The Cruise Web's cruise listings, there was no "fine print" to back up the reason they gave for their denial. The agent I went through at Cruise Web, Jared, said he would fight for me, but nothing more happened. I decided to go to Princess Cruises, writing a letter to the President, Mr. Peter Ratcliffe. I asked for a reversal of the denial or another cruise booking for two. I got a phone call from a lady who said Unfortunately had you purchased your policy from us, we'd be happy to give you another cruise, but since you didn't, too bad. (Her exact words.) It seemed to me that handing the trip over to The Cruise Web, their agent, implied that either the insurance recommended by their site, would complement Princess' fares. Being able to book another cruise of equal value ($10,000) cruise would be my preferred resolution, as I have been a long time cruiser, have taken two cruises since this episode and am booked on several more, including one on Princess this spring. . To complicate matters, I had also purchased a year's worth of travel insurance from BCAA (in Canada). When appealing to them I was told my claim had to be filed within three months (who knew?) Can you do anything to assist me? I recently signed up for a year's worth of Just Answer. Respectfully XXXXX XXXXX PS I have a file on this, so can answer questions, if you have any. Thanx,

I sold an Iphone on EBAY through Pay and Pal, the person I sold the phone to lives in India. The transaction amount was $590.00. I had an email exchange with the buyer letting him know what the shipping charges would be and he agreed to pay them. That was 3 moinths ago. Recently I recieved a call from Pay and Pal saying that the person who's credit card was charged for the phone claims he did not buy it and that his credit card was stolen. They are now wanting me to refund the $590.00. They are threatening to show this is a a negative on my credit report. My question is can they by law require me to comply with this request without returning my Iphone?

I have a problem with Ebay. In March of 2011 I created 3 different listings to sell Franklin Mint Sterling silver bars. Lots of 5, 5, and 4 bars that were all purchased by the same buyer as "buy it now" listins. The price of silver at the time was about $40 per oz, and then within 2 weeks went to around $49 per oz. The buyer of the Franklin Mint Sterling silver bars had no issue at this time, but about a week later the price of silver dropped to around $34 per oz. All of a sudden the buyer made 3 claims against me on Ebay that the Franklin Mint Sterling silver bars were "not as described" and were "fake". I contacted Ebay immediately, described the issue, and they agreed with me and said to escalate the case and everything would be okay. Within two days I get emails from Ebay stating they agree with the buyer that the Franklin Mint Sterling silver bars are fake.This is just the beginning of the story, but hopefully enough to provide a picture of what I am dealing with. I have an email from Ebay stating that my descriptions of the bars are accurate, meaning my listings were all good. This has gone to the appeal stage on 2 of the listings, where I provided proof to Ebay that the items were genuine. Ebay still says they are fake.All along the way Ebay has disregarded their own Buyer Protection policy rules which I have been striving to follow to provide for a positive outcome for me. Is there anything I can do?(There is so much more to this than what is presented so far)Steve
