Legal Answers
560 Questions Answered
Q. If you get a car accident. Can they sue your fiancé once you get married
A: If your fiance had nothing to do with the accident (no involvement, no vehicle ownership), she cannot be sued. However, if you happen to have any assets prior to marriage and, in order to avoid paying a judgment debt, shift those assets to your future spouse or to yourself and your spouse jointly, the plaintiff could attempt to go after those assets under the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act. A different issue you may face, if you did not have adequate liability insurance coverage and you cannot pay a personal injury-based judgment debt, is the potential suspension of your driver's license for up to three years.
Q. Is it illegal to protest/share a negative experience with a business?
A: If you convey facts that are 100% truthful, your statements do not constitute unlawful defamation. However, you are correct that "anyone can sue anyone". Are you prepared to spend many thousands of dollars to defend yourself (with an attorney)? All the other party has to do is to file a court complaint alleging that your statements are knowingly false and have damaged them, and you are off to the races. Additionally, the other party might sue you for tortious interference with advantageous business relationship(s), which they can argue applies even assuming you are telling the truth. That cause of action is available if the other party can prove (1) the existence of a business relationship under which they have legal rights; (2) your knowledge of the relationship; (3) your intentional and unjustified interference with the relationship; and (4) damages resulting from the breach of the relationship. In some circumstances, the alleged relationship can be with identifiable prospective customers, not just established customers. And there again, they may have no leg to stand on, but can litigate it anyway. Can you attempt to pave the way for strong defenses if you are sued? Sure, but that may not prevent you from being sued. If you are prepared to spend a lot of money, you should consult an attorney in your area handling commercial litigation or general civil litigation. By the way, I see you did inquire about you suing them, such as for breach of contract, fraud, or deceptive and unfair trade practices. If you have not looked into that already, you may want to consult an attorney in your area who handles consumer protection matters.
Q. Hello! How can I have an unauthorized tenant removed?
A: The first issue is what the lease says, if anything, about how long guests may stay. The second issue is, does the landlord care? If the landlord cares, and the lease is being violated, the landlord may take action. If the lease is being violated, but the landlord doesn't care, you possibly may have legal grounds to VACATE the unit with an early termination of your lease (or your responsibility under the lease) upon seven days notice to the landlord requesting the landlord to cure the problem. In any event, your first step is to address the problem with your co-tenant. The logical way to look at it is this: the arrangement that's in writing envisions three people in the unit. Therefore, what is the damage/inconvenience to you caused by the third tenant being the boyfriend instead of the mother, who is the true third tenant on the lease?
