Q. What is the diffrence between a mdl and a class action? Are the depuy Law suits now lumped together or not?
A: In response to your inquiry regarding DePuy lawsuits being "lumped together" - currently, there is an MDL (MDL 2197) in the Northern District of Ohio before Judge Katz. That MDL involves the DePuy ASR Hip Implant. This is a Federal MDL, meaning only cases proceeding in federal courts in the U.S. would be involved. The DePuy Pinnacle Hip Implant has not been made into an MDL, however, Plaintiffs Attorneys have sought creation of such an MDL and the Judicial Panel on Multi-district litigation will conduct a hearing on the issue on May 16, 2011 in Louisville, KY. It is not clear whether a potential DePuy Pinnacle MDL would join the ASR MDL 2197. There is not a federal DePuy class action, for either the ASR Implant or the Pinnacle Implant.
Q. Where can I find the WA state code that defines the business type "Sole Proprietorship"?
A: "'Sole proprietorship' means a legal form of organization owned by one person meeting the requirements of RCW 18.04.195." Wash. Rev. Code Ann. § 18.04.025.
Q. IS IT LEGAL FOR POLICE TO SEARCH YOUR TRASH?
A: The Police generally cannot search your home without a warrant. The Supreme Court of Colorado has held that "Home and office occupants who place trash in nontransparent trash bags for collection do so for the limited purpose of waste collection and disposal and do not thereby intend to surrender their privacy interest in the trash so as to permit or authorize a police search of the bags containing the trash ... Simply stated, the mere possibility that some member of the public or a trash collector might search one's nontransparent and tied or otherwise secured trash bags should not be the basis for authorizing similar activity by governmental officials." People v. Hillman, 834 P.2d 1271, 1282 (Colo. 1992). Therefore, the answer to your question would depend on whether the police had a warrant to search the trash, and whether the trash was in a non-see-through, securely closed bag.
Q. Can a plaintiff sue a witness listed by the defendant?
A: Some more information would be helpful in answering this question. Would this witness be sued becuase of the testimony they gave during the case? Or, would this witness be added as a defendant to the case in progress?
Q. My son was in a motorcycle accident approximately 3.5 years ago and received multiple injuries. He was riding a friend's
A: In Colorado, you must bring an action within three years from the date the cause of action accrues. Colo. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 13-80-101. "A cause of action for bodily injury or property damage arising out of the use or operation of a motor vehicle accrues on the date that both the existence of the injury or damage and the cause of the injury or damage are known or should have been known by the exercise of reasonable diligence." Colo. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 13-80-108. If it has been longer than 3 years as your question states, you are likely outside of the time limit in which you can bring a claim. Without more information regarding the insurance claim process it is difficult to suggest how to approach the insurance company.
Q. What do I need to do to withdraw from an LLC in colorado
A: You will need to refer to the LLC's Operating Agreement section/provision for member withdrawal. That section will set forth the terms/procedure you will need to follow. Colo. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 7-80-602 States: "A member may resign from a limited liability company at any time by giving notice to the other members, but, if the resignation violates the operating agreement, the limited liability company may recover from the resigning member damages for breach of the operating agreement and offset the damages against the amount otherwise distributable to the resigning member."
