On the previous subject we were discussing, How should I

On the previous subject we were discussing, How should I respond to his email?On one item, He suggests I should pay for half of the fee for the pool clean up! The guys that I had to hire to clean up the property on an emergency basis for the existing guests so I would not loose the income cost $400. I rewarded The guests who saved the house from Certain flooding with a home cooked meal that cost me $350 and he said he should have approved that expense! (See his other responses to my email on former question). I would much rather NOT litigate and settle this but it's unfair what he's suggesting. How do you suggest that I finesse the response to his email?

I own an LLC in Florida. This LLC holds title to a property

Hello,I own an LLC in Florida.This LLC holds title to a property that is about to be foreclosed. We reached a settlement with the bank and are about to receive a check from them. They asked us to fill out a W-9 form which essential asks for our EIN or Tax ID#Here comes the tricky part: We own one LLC which we call the "umbrella" company. In order to not have all properties we own under the same LLC (protect ourselves) we were advised long ago to open separate LLC's for each property and they would all be managed by the umbrella company. And so I did.Each year we do only one tax return for the umbrella company.How should I fill out the W-9? I did it one time with the name of the umbrella company on it but the bank came back and said it has to be the name of the defendant. But the defendant - the LLC that is under the umbrella company does not have a TAX ID#..... what should I do and are we doing this all wrong?By the way a few days ago I did a DBA for the LLC in question.... I don't know if that helps.Thank you.

Good Morning.In 2012 my wife and I joined a country club. We paid an initiation fee, in total, for membership in their beach club, and also paid two installments on the "main" club membership. Total payments were about 20kIn less than six months we became very dissatisfied with the club an initated complaints about numerous issues with the general manager (since fired)The complaint cycle with the former GM turned quite unfriendly and she refused to do anything to address our concerns (she was promoted to GM BTW from the position of accountant at the club after her predecessor was fired, she had NO experience in the hospitality industry)Anyhow, we stopped paying initiation fees and dues, and then the club suspended us.We never signed any type of agreement with the club.We want our money back...how do you suggest we proceed?Not in a position at the moment to hire an attorney for this.Thanks!

I am being sued for breach of non compete my previous employer said I signed in 2002.I believe it is forged.They refuse to give us the original or a faxed copy.My lawyer has been contacted by their attorney for some kind of agreement.My attorney says that we should come to an agreement as a lawsuit cannot be dropped by them for no reason.Is this true?Can a lawsuit be voluntarily dropped by a plantiff one month after being filed?I dont want to compromise because they have tried to harm me by fraud.
