Legal Answers
123 Questions Answered

Q. Subject Matter Jurisdiction (personal)
A: No, appearance in court without contesting personal jurisdiction is consent and there's no "duped" exception.
Q. Can an appeal be filed on a case affirmed by the supreme court?
A: Only by petition to the U.S. Supreme Court if there is a federal law issue involved, and Scotus has discretion to accept the petition or deny review.
Q. Is it illegal for someone to read your private text messages by snooping on your phone?
A: No, it's not illegal unless the mother hacked into the phone or used software to disable encyption.
Q. The opposing party cross-appealed after I filed my appeal. What does that mean?
A: It means they are appealing issues decided against them as well.
Q. Antitrust if a large Corp was willing to restructure debt contingent on defaulting a lease of their competitor
A: It's not possible to give a solid antitrust view of this issue with the facts you supplied. Generally. a firm can act to harm competitors, by any means, if it acts alone -- unless it has monopoly power in the relevant market. Putting competitors out of business is encouraged...that's what's competition is all about. You may have a "business tort" claim, but not an antitrust cause of actin.
Q. If I start up a website, can I quote all other websites?......
A: The legal concept you are invoking is called "fair use" ad is an exception to copyright. You cannot duplicate a website or its pages but under some circumstances -- which vary depending on the amount, nature and context of use -- use a portion of their content. Attribution or linking is not a defense or sufficient by itself alone. You should seek counsel on this from someone who knows the application of copyright to website "scraping."
Q. I have a man who has threatened to email my boss in hopes of getting me fired on top of saying suggestive content
A: If he is an employee or officer of the company, you may have a civil claim for s x discrimination or sexual harassment. If not, there may be a crime involved, extortion being one of them, so make out a complaint to the applicable police dept.
Q. Can I cancel a home improvement contract for a roofing job in Illinois after the 3-day cooling period?
A: Not unless the Illinois statute permits cancellation after expiration of that 3-day period, which is unlikely. You are always entitled to break a contract, but on pain of paying damages caused to the other party — which in this case would be required to "cover" by talking on other jobs, with you potentially liable for the difference in lost profits to the contractor. If misrepresentation or fraud was involved, you have other legal options as well.
Q. I am considering a commercial real estate lease in Iowa. The Landlord's attorney will not put just my business name.
A: Unless Iowa-specific state statutes or court decisions say otherwise, a landlord or other creditor is entitled to ask for a personal guarantee from a corporation's principals. You are also entitled to say no.
