5 Questions Answered

Q. My husband was refused service because he was rowdy with a store employee. Can that employee refuse to serve me
A: Notwithstanding I am basing my response solely on your post, in general terms, any business does reserve the right to refuse service. However, a business cannot break the law or discriminate on the basis of suspect and quasi-suspect classifications such as race, gender, etc. I will be more than happy to discuss your matter further if in Florida. You can contact my office by filling a form on my website: https://www.pregolawgroup.com
Q. Does 607.0102 require participation by all owners or can the majority owner act on this?
A: Depending on the type of corporation, if a decision needs to be made, either a Special Shareholders meeting could be called or BOard of Directors (subject to the authority given to the Board). Also, in lieu of a meeting, a circular to ALL shareholders could be an alternative. In order to properly answer this matter, the articles, by-laws, and other corporate documents will be needed. I will be happy to assist you further. Please kindly visit my website to schedule a consultation: https://www.pregolawgroup.com
Q. If you have a joint bank account with someone and I received a refund from the IRS directly deposited in the account
A: It will depend on the type of joint account, the terms of the bank account, and other considerations. I will be happy to give you a free assessment should you contact my office: www.pregolawgroup.com Sincerely, Martin Prego, Esq.
