My daughter did something illegal about 8 years ago at her

My daughter did something illegal about 8 years ago at her employer. She was caught, arrested, was tried, fined, served time, etc. Of course she was fired, but she has paid her due. She is working at a very public place right now and in walks the secretary that still works at the place where this all happened. Of course she recognized my daughter and said, aren't you Judy, and my daughter said no, and the lady said yes you are. My daughter tried to avoid her, but couldn't. So, my daughter's manager was just going out to smoke and the lady followed her. Well needless to say, she told the manager what my daughter did years ago. So not only did my daughter witness them talking outside, she asked her manager when she came in and she confirmed the lady told her all of my daughter's personal business. Now mind you the manager knew from her application she had a past, but of course, no details were disclosed. She was so embarrassed and humiliated. I am livid and this lady should not be able to get away with this. So is there any recourse we have to teach her a lesson.

It was implicitly stated that they wanted to use my voice to improve their chances of getting gigs. I was unfairly fired from the band and want to know if I can collect a percentage of any gigs booked (and newly acquired venues) during my tenure with the band.

Legalgems. so Im discussing the cashing of the check,

Hi again legalgems. so Im discussing for now the cashing of the check, written to my daughter under the Nevada uniform transfer act to minors. and me as "custiodian for". And if cashing the check will cause problems for me to contest the part of the probate that only pertains to me, not my daughter.So, take a look Below....at what I got from a Nevada's attorneys office and their simplified versions explaining how to understand this Uniform minors act in Nevada:As this interpretation tells me there shouldn't be ANY repercussions cashing daughters check.??And doesn't the "Tort" thing pertain to my case also.... working in my favor? (thanks and see below)WHAT IS THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THE UNIFORM TRANSFERS TO MINORS ACT?Instead of a trust, guardianship or conservatorship, the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act contemplates a custodianship of the property that would otherwise transfer directly to the minor. The custodian would be either an adult or an appropriate institution, which would serve in that capacity until the minor reaches the age specified in the statute. Age of maturity ranges from 18 to 25 depending on the state's version of the statute. The custodial relationship is created by executing a simple document.Nevada's age of maturity is 18.WHAT IS THE EXTENT OF LIABILITY OF THE CUSTODIAN?Pursuant to the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act, the liability of custodians has been limited as the type of property which can be transferred has been expanded. The custodian has specific statutory authority to deal with the property on behalf of the minor. The custodian will not be held personally liable for contractual obligations where it is clear that the custodian signed only in the capacity of “custodian”. Nor will the custodian be held personally liable on TORT claims arising from the ownership or control of custodial property unless the custodian is found to be personally at fault.Created 8/04/2015If you have questions regarding the Uniform Transfers to Minors Act, or any other estate planning needs, please contact Anderson, Dorn & Rader, Ltd., either online or by calling us at(###) ###-####Here's the link:understanding the nevada uniform transfers to minors act

The court has ruled that the police violated my right to

the court has ruled that the police violated my right to remain silent by continuing to discuss and question me about the matter even after my stating in writing and verballly and theur affirmning my invoking the right, Consequent to the statements I made after invoking, I was arrested and short time later was to be terminated from my job. The arrest was news worth, name is ***** ***** it comes up on internet searches. My employer and I settled and I resigned "in lieu of termination" What recourse for damages, if any, might i be able to seek given the arrest was based on their violating my rights? I had one year remaining ona contract, there is no reason, and my employer would attest to it, to believe that i would not be offered a third three year contract once the current expired.

When can the statute of limitations be tolled? I have a

When can the statute of limitations be tolled? I have a situation where the trustees of my family trust commited some torts a little while ago, just over a year for a pretty serious case of defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress and a few others, there's even a unlawful imprisonment charge. The trust owns the house I live in and provides my income. They've been telling me that if I sued them for any reason I would be evicted and they cut off my income because I threatened to do just that. The defamation and imprisonment claims are over the one year mark but do I have an argument here to toll that? Also, my sister was involved and she is not a trustee... It was the trustees who made the threats but would I be able to toll the statutes for a claim against her? I believe that if the defendant is directly responsible for causing the delay of filing then this can be done, I'd say that losing my house and income is a pretty good reason, do you agree?
