Just one moment while I type it out. So I own a cleaning
Hello Pearl, yes! :) Just one moment while I type it out. So I own a cleaning business and we recently let go of one of the independent contractors we work with and no longer provide them with work (unreliable, bad performance etc). This particular contractor still has the keys to one of our clients homes. I have repeatedly tried contacting her via text, email and phone over the past week and have received no responses at all. Completely ignored. I do not want to have to file a police report or treat this as theft, but am unsure of what to do. How would you proceed?JA: What state are you in? And have you consulted a local attorney?Customer: For reference I am based in DC, but we also serve Maryland and Virginia. She lives in Virginia and our home office is in D DC I have not yet but am strongly considering it.JA: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?Customer: Nothing officially filed yet. Just several polite texts asking for her to send or mail it back, and that she will be fully reimbursed.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That should be all, thank you. Ok thank you.
I purchased Private stock in a phone company a friend
I purchased Private stock in a phone company a friend started in 2005. I never got a corporate stock certificate from the company, only a stockholders agreement that says I will be given the stock certificate within 30 days, never happened. My friend and I had a falling out. I never heard anything about my investment since the initial investment in 2005., no reports, etc. I recently heard from a third party that the company disolved, but I was never notified or paid my share of ownership. I also found out that my friend used my 100k investment to pay his own salary against the boards permission. Is there anything I can do at this point to recover any of my investment? The company never went public.

Can a general contractor deduct money from a payment due to
Can a general contractor deduct money from a payment due to dissatisfaction with the supervision of a job? The project was to install a door. The job was installed in one day and working properly. The customer's dissatisfaction came from the late start because the project supervisor/co-owner of the business never showed on the job. The employees arrived on time and waited, but eventually started and finished the job without him. What is our recourse? It's been approximately 30 days since the job was installed, and I received $1300 of the $1800 that was agreed upon from the contractor.

When the proposed defendant in a threatened small claims
When the proposed defendant in a threatened small claims lawsuit is mentally incompetent due to some kind of senile dementia, how should his caregivers respond to the threat of a small claims court lawsuit against him?Background: A notoriously exploitative and litigious "water damage restoration" company threatens to file a lawsuit in small claims court against an elderly person with undiagnosed but obvious, diagnosable dementia.The victim had agreed to an unnecessary set of services by this company and two similar ones, which the company had summoned to his home. (The home is owned by a trust in which the man holds a 2% share and his children hold 98%.)With the assistance and support of his fully competent adult son, the elderly man refuses to pay the bill. He has not been served yet; the threat stated that a small claims suit would be filed next week.How should his children respond?If the company does sue the elderly man, how and when is the issue of his mental competence raised?
Last month, I sued a collection agency in Small Claims Court
Last month, I sued a collection agency in Small Claims Court for violation of the Rosenthal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.The agency was collecting on medical bill paid in full by my health insurance company.I was reworded $1,000.00 for violation of the FDCPA and $1,000.00 Compensatory Damages for emotional distress.Last week the collection agency posted on my credit report that I owe the $1,250.00 which I proved in court that is paid in full by my health insurance company.I also received a collection letter for the $1,250.00.I spoke to the Small Claims Court clerk and she said I will have to file the form SC-105 “Request for Court Order and Answer” and ask for declaratory relief.My question is,1. what should I specify in the section no 3 of the form SC-105, which stipulates “I ask the court to make the following order”2. what should I specify in the section no 4 of the form SC-105, which stipulates “I ask for this order because”All I want is that the collection agency will stop collecting on the paid bill, will stop contacting me and to make sure that no this agency or any other collection agency will post the $250 bill as account in collection on my credit report or start new collection over again.Thank you
Needs some information about legal options that are
Needs some information about legal options that are available for a breech of contract type situation.We have contracted with a dog breeder in pennsylvania (we reside in New York) for a puppy to be picked up Oct 11th. Have been in a contract since July when it was known the dog would be having a litter.The way the contract was set up to pick the owner had first choice, another buyer had second and we had third choice. If the buyer did not want a puppy we would therefore be second. I had asked the seller 3 days before we were to pick if she was planning on keeping a puppy so i knew if we would be second pick or third and she indicated (in writing) that "she was not keeping one from this litter". Therefore I assumed by contract that we would be second. Well low and behold we were still third. After I was honest with her (which was a stipulation in her contract - honesty) and indicated that I felt by her admission that we should have had second choice and that I had my heart set on one of the first two pups that had now beeen choosen by some other 2 people. She immediately became nasty in her emails and said that she wasn;t going to sell me a puppy now because "she felt I wouldn't love them" At no time had I said that and on many occasions had indicated that "if I was in a position I would take them all they were so cute and loveable". We had already picked a puppy but she is still insisting that she will not sell us one.Therefore I would like to know how I can compel her to do so as WE have not breeched any contract and how we can get an injunction to make sure she doesn't sell the puppy we picked to someone else. And what legal recourse we have if all this can not be done in a timely fashion in order to get one of her puppies. (she does have great puppies but apparently not great with people). Side note we purchased a puppy from her 3 years ago, who by her own emails to this day, describes that dogs care by us as loving and he being a lucky pup. please advise as soon as possible as this is very time sensitive
