Legal Answers
458 Questions Answered

Q. I need to produce inspection of a original lease document. I would like to object, I don't trust the other party,
A: More details are needed, but in discovery the only objections can be if it's not relevant (and the lease clearly is relevant in a landlord tenant / real property matter). The lease can also be treated as confidential if making it public could cause harm to one of the parties. Other than that, you have to disclose it and it's best to keep a detailed record of the disclosure / protect the originals.
Q. Conflict of laws
A: You are free to choose, but NY is most likely preferable.
Q. People moved into my Long Island house in Jan.2017. I live in BK. I want them out. How can I do it?
A: Eviction proceedings at the housing court (landlord / tenant) in the town where the property is located.
Q. The state of New York decides its previous 30-year acknowledgement of a class of economic partnership was a mistake.
A: An NY Supreme Court (plenary, county court) justice can determine a law to be unconstitutional and not apply the law, he or she would have to have grounds for doing so based on principles constitutional jurisprudence, scrutiny, and review.
Q. Many years ago a PA attorney told us that we could force a sale of the property we own with another party. How?
A: Start a partition action in the county court where the property is located and seek the relief of sale. With a partition action a court can order to divide up a concurrent estate (joint ownership) into separate portions representing the proportionate interests of the tenants (tenants in common) and each share can be separately sold or deeded. Generally speaking court's recognize that joint owners or tenants in common don't want to remain bound to each other and they can order an auction, but it's usually more beneficial for the parties to cooperate in the sale.
Q. Is there a specific order I need to file claims if I plan to file a criminal and civil suit against someone who caused
A: Your question is a bit too general to answer, but to answer generally you can file a complaint in civil court and get a summons to serve the complaint upon the defendant. File a police report to initiate criminal proceedings.
Q. How does an appeals court decide if they want to hear a case? What criteria do they use?
A: Appellate courts have some discretion over what cases they hear, but generally if there is believed to be a manifest error by the trial court in their application of the law an appeals court will hear the case.
Q. What is the appropriate Court for a constitutional challenge to a NY statute?
A: A Federal District Court located in NY, preferably closest to where the harm / injury / or violation occurred.
Q. the proceeding is my right to recover real property under my rent to own lease, her counter claim is that my lease is
A: If she copied and pasted your signature without your consent that does sound alot like fraud to me, but the facts you lay out sounds like she is claiming you committed fraud. Obviously there is a lot more going on here than you have written and a supreme court action concerning real estate almost always gets complicated. Written agreements always prevail in Real Estate, proving fraud is difficult, but not impossible. Best of luck.
