Legal Answers
103 Questions Answered

Q. If I am 50% owner in a LLC and my partner dies, can the widow of the company get anything from me if I give her the LLC?
A: That depends entirely on the terms of your LLC "operating agreement," but those corporate formation documents (and LLC laws generally) typically shield members and owners of an LLC from all personal liability.
Q. can I break a residency md contract that will start in July 2017?
A: Yes and no, respectively. Employment contacts will not be "specifically enforced," meaning you cannot be forced to work, but if you choose to breach by not working for them the hospital can recover actual damages caused y your actions.
Q. Regarding the use of public figures names and public domain images in a retail card game.
A: Even public figures have a "right of publicity" to control how their name and image are used in commercial products. Be careful.
Q. I am part of a non-profit that is facing bankruptcy but has a year left on a property lease. How should we proceed?
A: Contracts including leases are stayed and ordinarily discharged in bankruptcy, so if you can afford the fees associated with bankruptxy dissolution or reorganization, the lease is no obstacle.
Q. Can an opposition refuse to answer interrogatories or produce documents simply because
A: No, those are not valid grounds on which to object to interrogatories or other pretrial discovery propounded by a party to a lawsuit.
Q. Is an operating agreement same as lease agreement between a holding & operating LLC?
A: No, an operating agreement governs how an LLC enitity is run among its members (essential shareholders), including division and distribution of profits, not an agreement between two or more LLCs or other legal corporate entities.
Q. high school booster club does fund raising and people donated for specific sports programs do we fall under title 9 law
A: Very unlikely. Title IX obligations apply to an educational institution or "education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." From your question, the booster club would not be covered because it does not receive U.S. funds.
Q. What does the term amend to answer mean?
A: It appears from your language that the defendant company wants to amend its answer to the complaint you file alleging contract, but there is no legal term of art "amend to answer."
Q. If I pay someone for art of my already copyrighted character, is it copyrighted to me or both of us?
A: It would be preferable to have a formal "work for hire" contract with the artist, but since you purchased the work the presumption is that it conveyed with all property rights, especially as it is of your character.
