136 Questions Answered

Q. Can I make a case against my school for purposely messing up a sexual assault case?
A: It is a complicated question to answer and will depend on exactly what happened. However, in general, colleges are liable for sexual assault pursuant to Title IX where they were aware of the harasser's likely conduct or did not take sufficient steps to address reports of sexual assault.
Q. My employer did not invite me to a team building Virtual beer tasting, I don’t drink but I am on the leadership team
A: You did not post a question. However, by itself, there is nothing unlawful about the employer not inviting you.
Q. If a respondent objects to answering interrogatories on grounds of broad, burdensome, how can I respond to get the info?
A: Send a letter to the other party's attorney telling them you need the answer within a certain period for example 10 days or two weeks of the date of your letter to them. Offer to talk about the information and why you need it. See if you can work out a deal to get all the information or your most needed if the request was to broad. If no resolution, file a motion to compel the other party to answer with the arbitrator explaining the issue and why you need the information you seek. The arbitrator should order it produced if it is not otherwise objectionable.
