Customer Question
I belong to two...

I belong to two political clubs--one is a neighborhood club and one is city-wide. Two people--also members in both clubs--ran for judicial delegate in the city-wide club supposedly against the judicial delegate slate in the neighborhood club and now are facing discipline. The neighborhood club is also trying to change their constitution to say that any member in office in that club cannot run "against" the endorsed slate or they will lose their office. What awe the rules regarding this?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

New York

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No--it's all internal club politics

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I don't think so--I've been told this could be illegal

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
