      Can I take a private seller to small claims court in Pa? I purchased a car from Craig's list for $1300.00 on 4/47/2009 The cars motor went on 5/8/09. The repair shop said it would cost $4000.00 to fix. The seller said the car was in great shape and there were no problem but a transmission slip.

      Can I take them to court? Please this would really help me. I have three kids and now no car or no money to purchase another one.

      Thanks you

      please respond to stvtill116@gmail.com
      Here is the add

      Great small car, really good on gas over 30 mpg, you can fill up on average for under $20. Car has around 130K miles, and needs light tranny work, it shouldn't need too much, just having a little problem catching in first gear. 2 door, automatic, 6 disc cd player, pw, pl, sunroof, 4cyl, abs, dual airbags, cruise control. Car has minor dings here and there but nothing too terrible. I will be uploading pics soon. Call Terry for questions

      No I expect him to see his mom and also expect her to see him. I was only asking to get an idea. And the reason the child is with me is because the order that is in effect right now states the mother have no physical contact. I was merely wanting to know if my husband would be allowed to file for a "stay" since he is away a school. And by the way the child is not being told that if you knew the whole situation you would understand, thank you though for jumping to conclusions and judging. The relief act doesn't have anything to do with visits I was just wondering if the court process would be held off until my husband returns.

      Written Receipt, but seller won't give me a Refund!


      I currently purchased a Sofa from a "friend" of ours. I paid her the $500.00, and said I could pick it up on the weekend.
      She wrote out a contract/receipt for the payment of the Sofa.
      It states "Sofa and ottoman must be picked up by 12/22/08, or this receipt is null and void and there will be no refund or delivery of the sofa".
      "In case of emergency and the buyer is not able to pick up the sofa due to fire, buglary, etc then the full $500.00 will be re-imbursed to her no later than 12/22/08."

      I asked her for a Refund because it is before the stated date of 12/22/08, and she will not cooperate or pick up my phone calls. She will only respond in emails saying that if I don't pick it up by Monday the 22nd I am out my money.

      Can she do this? Don't I get my refund if it is before the stated date of 12/22/08?

      I was driving my car thru town and from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. the stoplights are flashing yellow. On this particular night I was on my way to pick up my son because he needed a ride home and it was really cold out. I went thru 2 intersections and the lights were flashing yellow, the third intersection the light was flashing red, I stepped on my brake but did not completely stop, there was 2 cars behind me and they did the same thing.
      I continued on my way and saw in my rear view mirror that the car directly behind me pulled into the other lane and that the third car pulled in behind me and started tailgating me. I then changed lanes and that car did the same . I went past a second intersection and the car continued following very close behind me. I then came to the third intersection and the lights were green and I turned my signal on to turn at this intersection and the car behind me also did this, the light was green and I proceeded then I came to the public library parking lot to turn around and as I reached the driveway the car behind me turned on it's lights and it was a police officer.
      He then said and issued me a citation for running a red flashing light and I was parked in the parking lot of the library at this time. I took pictures of all the lights and where I was pulled over while I waited for him to print out my citation. Should I Fight this ? it was 0.6 miles away before he went to pull me over and 2 intersections and one stop light later?

      Hi, sir.
      Could you tell me which an attack is here?
      25. Jack sued Fran for custody of their two children in Ohio. The Ohio court granted Jack’s custody request. Fran brings a suit against Jack in Virginia claiming that Ohio lacked jurisdiction over her and the children. Fran’s suit is:
      (a direct attack on the Ohio judgment or collateral attack on the Ohio judgment, or maybe it is an equitable estoppels?)

      Hello, I am in Missouri and I was hoping for a little help. My son goes to his fathers every other weekend and always comes back to me dirty and a lot of the time he is in the same clothes I sent him in. He really does not like to go and I have not recieved Child support in six months. I was just wondering if I could cut off the visits for my sons sake or if I would be in legal trouble for doing that. Please let me know and Thanks!

      I was recently charged with underage consumption in williamson county TN. I was at my buddys house when the cops were called. Some guys were outside drinking and when the cops came they ran inside and shut the door coming in thru the open garage door. The officer ran in behind the guys and opened the door yelling for everyone to stay put and asking for id's. The owner of the house came into the rom and started yelling at the officer to get out of her house and that they cant just barge in so the cops walked outside and started demanding id's. I did not have my id so when they started talking to me I gave them all of my information. The officer looked at me and said "ok, you look you have been drinking tonight and I can tell that you have so theres no point in lying. How many have you had tonight sir." I looked at him looked to my right at my buddy and looked back to the officer not saying anything. He wrote on his legal pad and walked away so I went back inside. About 20 minutes later the cops asked for me to come back outside. I went back outside and asked why I was being charged and what for. The officers replied that I had nodded when asked if I had been drinking. I told them that was not true that I never moved or said anything to them, the officer then said well you need to sign this sheet saying you understand that you have court ad if you dont show you will be arrested. I told him i would be contesting the charges and he said thats fine just make sure I go to court. I have court on the 7th of January what should I do? Do I need a attorney? Is there anyway that I can get out of this without any trouble? I was never sobriety tested or breathalized. The only evidence is that they said I nodded when asked if I had been drinking. What should I do? If you can email me back on here or at macn08@aol.com thank you

      My husband is on 2 different probations. Last year he had 1 of his probations revoked for not following the release agreement by not seeing his PO and a few other things. He spent over 3 months in jail and when he got out he thought that he was completely done with jail time. He has since followed all his rules of probation and has done very well until the other day he was arrested for a warrant out of the same county for the same charges as the year before , the only difference is that they are trying to violate a different probation, not the one that was revoked. So my question is, is this legal? Isn't it double jeopardy and shouldn't the court have brought up the issue of the other probation in the same hearing as before? How can they wait a year before issuing a warrant when he was sitting in their jail when the charge against that probation was originally documented. Help I need my hubby home before Christmas!

      If I took photos of someone getting married at a public location, then used the photo as part of my wedding website showing my artistic photography skills (at the top of the page it says “examples of my art”), would I be at any high risk of being sued without bothering them for a signed waiver? Why can the news media do it legally? I know that CNN, NBC and the rest are all in it to make money. They are not giving the people news for free. They say you can show your artistic ability but how can an artist do it without promoting himself at the same time? I am advertising my business but also showing my artistic capability and enjoying my right to work. Even the newspapers have to make a profit. I did not want to bother the couple and ask for a signed waiver. Or ask the building owners of the buildings in the background. Just using the photos to promote my services as a photographer and since the couple was there at a public park, could I have taken the photos?

      Here is what I heard - Nobody's going to spend tens of thousands of dollars on lawyers to collect a few hundred in damages. If you use the image and they raise a stink and you don't stop using the image, they will have their lawyer send you a letter to cease and desist. That's required. If you don't desist, then they can try to sue. I guess if the person ever noticed themselves, all they could do is ask me to take it off and if I did take if off the website, nothing much more to be afraid of then, right?
      Also, The wedding dresses, tuxedos, rings, chairs, tables, tents... are all someone's intellectual property. Are wedding dress designers suing photographers who use images of their dresses on their website? How about the chair or table company? For that matter, architecture is intellectual property. If a photographer takes a photo of a couple and there is a building in the background, the owner of the building could also sue the photographer then right? The copyright office states : Copyright protection subsists from the time the work is created in fixed form. The copyright in the work of authorship immediately becomes the property of the author who created the work. Only the author or those deriving their rights through the author can rightfully claim copyright. So therefore "unless there is an agreement to the contrary, every photographer has copyright and control of the image they take, even if someone already paid them." Right? I heard that in ADVERTISING - When people are recognizable in public domain photos, the photos cannot
      legally be used for commercial purposes. But I also heard that In the U.S., street photographs, taken of people and things visible on the street, in circumstances where there is no reasonable expectation of privacy, can be published, displayed, and sold as "art" (as distinct from their use for advertising, promotion, or "commerce") without obtaining permission of the people photographed. In fact, a New York State Supreme Court judge recently made judgement on a case and said that the photographer's right to artistic expression trumped the subject's privacy rights. New York state right-to-privacy laws prohibit the unauthorized use of a person's likeness for commercial purposes, that is, for advertising or purposes of trade. But they do not apply if the likeness is considered art. I would be just using the photos of a bride and groom or people playing volleyball to show my artistic services as a photographer. What do you think?
      "If the law were to forbid artists to exhibit their photographs made in public places without the consent of all who might appear in those photographs, "then artistic expression in the field of photography would not be protected under the freedom of speech and freedom to perform art would suffer drastically" right? Most courts have consistently found "art" to be constitutionally protected free speech. If I show off my artistic ability is it alright? A profit motive in itself does not necessarily compel a conclusion that art has been used just for trade purposes. Can a photographer therefore be allowed to show one person's existance to another? It doesn't matter if it's a photo of a war, or whatever......it's a function (and personal freedom) of photograhers everywhere to show the world, the existance of the rest of the world, even on their website right?.
      Can it also be considered news worthy that people get married here at this place for example? I am showing off my art and telling the news of what is happening at this location (freedom of the press). The public areas of the United States.....anyhow.....are for everyone's use..........including photographers. Taking a picture of another person in a public does absolutely nothing to impede that other person of their rights. Stopping the photographer from taking those pictures, impedes their rights of expression....and again, using those pictures in an artistic pursuit, including selling photographs of art work from them, and putting them in a book form is an extension of that pursuit of happiness. Once the photographer takes the picture, it is their picture............not the subjects. People are photographed everyday on buses, at ATM's, at intersections walking into convenience stores, etc...
      In the book: Legal Handbook for Photographers: The Rights and Liabilities of Making Images" by Bert Krages. The short answer is you can take anyone's photo in a public place where they are also in public view, and you can publish their photo in a book of street photography without their permission (or post it on your web site). How about all the artistic “street photographers out there”? I thought that I could take photos and show off my art work on the web. This is called the "pursuit of happiness"..doing something you enjoy doing, that doesn’t harm anybody else..and there is a rather famous document that says you have the right to pursue that in the USA. "As soon as the shutter clicks...." copyright belongs to the photographer. These photos would be exhibited on my website for my photo business as examples of my 'art'. Just think at any wedding, you would have to get a “model or other release” from the bride and groom, plus each family member or guardian, table makers, chair makers, flower arrangement company, wedding dress maker, church owner, silverware company, any owners of buildings in the background, etc... I could argue that a wedding or volleyball game is publishable in a newspaper as an event that took place. To quote Benjamin Franklin, "Those who would exchange freedom for security deserve neither'.
      So here it is again: If I were to take of photo of people getting married at a public location, then used the photo as part of my wedding website showing my artistic photography skills, would I be at any high risk? How about is the headline reads “Examples of my art”?

    19. StanislavO
      I had a large question and hope someone can answer it. Please help me, i am a bright kid with a great future ahead just did something really stupid thanks....

      My name is Stanislav. I live in Santa Clara County, In San Jose CA.
      My friends and I were really bored and did something really stupid. And now i am here asking for any help which i can get.

      Tuesday morning we went out to an appartment complex and we were checking for cars which were unlocked to get small change and nothing greater then that. We found only one car which was unlocked and the other two cars my friends cut open soft tops. I know this was not the smartest things to do. We are all really good people which happen to make a big mistake which can cause failure to us in the future.

      What happen was when the alarm went off we all ran, the 5 of us. Two of us got away from the security which notified the police right away. My friend and I ran not to far and the other 3 got caught. All they had on them was a knife, a few pens, and a glow stick.

      When i went back to see if they got caught, not having any stolen property on me and a new set of clothes one of the cops asked me what i was doing and i told him that i was looking for my car. He told me that there was a burglary going on and he just wanted to make sure that i was not part of it. So he asked me where i was comming from and all that other stuff and i told him i was just looking for my car it was parked somewhere in the apartments.

      When he asked the security guard to come and see if i was one of the suspects the security guard told them 100% sure that I was not part of the group he saw, and that they were all asian.

      My phone went off as a text message and the cop asked me who it was and asked me if i can show him my phone. When i asked him if he can legally look at my phone, he put me in an arm lock for no reason and told me there was an investigation going on and asked me for my phone after he let go of the arm lock.

      I gave him my phone but my phone was LOCKED with a password. He told me if i dont give him my password i was going to go to jail. So i had to unlock my phone for him and he read the text message from my friend which said DID YOU FIND THEM YET? can he legally use that against me, Also can he put me in an arm lock if i didnt do anything wrong to his knowledge.

      They put me in hand cuffs and told me that if i dont cooperate with them then they will bring me to jail, he had me show him where one of the cars was. He told me that if i showed him they would let me go. Then out of no where we started going to down town, STILL NOT KNOWING MY RIGHTS, They told me that i had to write an APOLOGY Letter to the owner of the cars or to whom ever i want. So i told everything except the car tops which they later found.

      Can somebody please tell me what i can do. I was in Jail for 4 days and bailed so i can do anything in my power to get my self out of this bump in my life.

      My questions:
      *Can they really take my phone with force like that"?
      *Do they have to read me my Miranda Rights?
      *Can i trust the Public Defender?
      *Can they use what was on the Cell Phone?
      *Can they use the "Apology" letter against me?
      *What can i do if i cannot afford a Lawyer?

      With out the phone there was no way they can link me to the crime until i wrote the confession letter not mentioning the soft tops.

      I got 2 felony Charges

      1)Burglary of 3 counts
      2)Vandalizm of 2 counts.

      I already know My friends and I want to pay restitution to the people for their soft tops, but can they use any of the info i gave them because without my cell phone they cannot link me to the crime.

      Please help me out, i know what i did was wrong. Thank You so much for your time
