Can a resigning board member delete all of her email history
The board member at a non-profit organization was forced to resign due to certain breach of her fiduciary obligations and deleted all of her emails knowing that there is a pending investigation by an independent attorney appointed by the board.Does she have a right to do so or all the emails on the corporate server belong to the organization? This happened in the state of New Jersey.
As a company owner who has customer data on my servers, I
Hi there,As a company owner who has customer data on my servers, I routinely get subpoenas that request customer information off of my servers.So long as there is no nondisclosure/gag order with the subpoena, I like to notify my customers that they were the subject of a subpoena.My question: In addition to notifying the customers, can I also (1) send them a COPY of the subpoena, and (2) send them a copy of the RECORDS/INFO that the subpoena requested? #2 usually consists of the customer's own background data, service data, etc.
2 years ago I financially assisted a homeless man. He said
2 years ago I financially assisted a young homeless man. He said he would be able to pay me back because he is expecting a lawsuit settlement. I actually went to the lawyers office with him. He kept requesting money for bail, food, rent, transportation. Through much emotional anguish he said if I don't take care of this particular financial problem, there will be no settlement. This went on for 2 years. Recently he said the settlement was in and we needed to pick it up. With tons of excuses, we never made it to the lawyers office. He is now being evicted and he said the settlement is put on hold because he will be fighting the eviction. The only proof of him stringing me along and threatening that I won't get what is owed to me is thru text messages. There are an abundance of them stating if I don't come up with more money for this or that, he won't get his settlement, therefore I will not get my money back. Will the texts messages be enough proof to show what has been going on.? He is probably going to jail for multiple DUI's so is this worth pursuing ? The amount he owes me is 50k.

My wife's ex husband of 13 plus years has just filed a subpoena to her new employer for all of her employment records. This was file Pro Se in Cook count Illinois. Is this information privileged?

My daughter is 28 and has been in and out of jail mainly due
My daughter is 28 and has been in and out of jail mainly due to crack cocaine. Last year I provoked her in my home and she threw me on the floor and dragged me by the hair down the hallway and onto the stair landing, At that time she told me she was going to throw me down the stairs. We walked down three stairs as she held me by my hair. Luckily, she did not proceed as I offered absolutely no resistance as I did not want to fuel her anger.Two days later a friend stopped by unannounced and saw that I was not doing well and had no phone (as my daughter had taken it that night). She encouraged me to call the police and report this. I did so.Now the DA has mailed me, sent two people to my home, left a sticker on my mail box in an attempt to get me to testify. I missed the first court date since I was not officially served in person.Now they have mailed me notice of another trial and the intent to subpoena me once again. Unfortunately, I will be out of state at our national sales meeting all of that week and cannot go to court.Also my daughter has been doing so well in staying out of trouble and being respectful about not coming by unless she calls and is invited.I don't think I can avoid being subpoenaed and want to reschedule the court date upon receiving my mailed notice.Scared to be on trail as I am the victim and only witness and do not want to put her in more harm's way.Advice?
My daughter along with 3 other ladies are renting a duplex
My daughter along with 3 other young ladies are renting a duplex while attending LeMoyne College in Syracuse, NY. A lease was signed . The rental agency assured these ladies that the area is safe. However, gang related crime, loitering, drug dealers, and 2 shootings within the last 2 weeks, directly across the street from their place does not qualify this as a "safe" neiborhood. We would like to help the girls get out of there, which of course means getting out of the lease. What are your thoughts?
I was promised financial compensation by Bobs furniture
I was promised financial compensation by Bobs furniture account managers in the corporate office, besides the delivery fee and taxes due to several failed delivery attempts. Now, I am told they are only allowed to issue one compensation (delivery fee) as per company policy. I have been misled, and lied to. All conversations have been recorded by Bobs Furniture, as well notes on the system. What legal rights do I have?
