Legal Answers
18 Questions Answered

Q. I'm being sued for unpaid overtime wages, liquidated damages and attorneys' fees. I own a convenience store in Florida
A: If you were served with a lawsuit it is very important that you hire an attorney as soon as possible as you have to respond to the lawsuit within 20 days or risk having a default entered against you and your Company. Gather all the time cards and information you have on the employee suing you and provide the same to the attorney of your choice. Our firm handles these matters and offer no obligation free consultations if you would like to further discuss this matter.
Q. I got served for a lawsuit about a car of mine that got repossed two years ago? What are the next steps I have to take?
A: The Summons you received will provide you with instructions on what are the next steps you should take. If this is a county court case ($5,000-$15,000) or circuit court case (above $15,000.00) you have to file a Response to the Complaint within 20 days and serve the same on the Plaintiff's attorney and file a copy of it with the Clerk of Court. If it is a small claims action (under $5,000.00) there should be a date for you to appear in Court--on said date you will attend a mediation to see if the matter can be settled--if not you will receive a trial date from the Judge.
Q. Where does it state in Federal or FL law that homeowners are required to maintain pools in same manner they passed insp.
A: There is not enough information in this question to answer it fully. If you are renting a property, maintenance of the pool should be listed in you Lease with who is responsible for it. If you do not return the leased property in the same condition you received it, minus some wear and tear, your Landlord could make a claim on your deposit and possibly sue you for damages.
Q. LandLord signed a letter to resolve lease and return SD as long as i'm out the house by the listed date. Is this legal
A: Depending on your lease, you may be liable for the entire lease if you move out without resolving the claim with your landlord. If there is an agreement for you to move out on a certain date and the LL to return your deposit on a date thereafter, yes it is legal, make sure it is in writing.
Q. What's the difference between sexual harassment and a giving a coworker a simple compliment?
A: Sexual harassment is unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature which interferes with an individual work performance which is so severe or pervasive to create a hostile work environment which negatively affects the term, condition or employment of the victim. A simple compliment, depending on the nature of that complaint, one time in the work place will most likely not rise to the level of sexual harassment. If you think your compliment would rise to the level of sexual harassment or at least inappropriate, best keep the compliment to yourself.
Q. Practice area question:
A: This is a crime and you should report it to the police. Florida is a two person consent state, it is a felony for someone to record another without their consent. Further, yes, this is an invasion of privacy as it was an electronic intrusion into a person's private quarters and possibly a public disclosure of private facts which a reasonable person would find offensive.
Q. Can I file a civil suit for sexual assault? And can I or should I also file criminal charges?
A: I am sorry to hear that you had to go through this, especially given the Me Too and Times Up movement. The short answer to your question is that Florida does not recognize a civil cause of action for "sexual harassment" so you would have to file under a different theory such as assault and battery or intentional infliction of emotional distress. Civil Suits for sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of discrimination protected under both State and Federal law but there does not seem to be an employer/employee situation here.
Q. A party owes me thousands. I have his audios & videos. Can I legally refuse to hand this over until I am paid in full?
A: There is not enough factual information contained in your question for anyone to be able to properly answer it. If you were contracted for work that you were not paid for, than no you do not have to hand over the work until you are paid. However, you need to include more information for me to be able to fully respond to your question.
Q. On a month to month for over 7 years now. How much notice should landlord give to vacate. can I live out deposit ?
A: On a month to month lease, the Landlord is only required to give you 15 days notice to move out. The deposit cannot be used in place of rent as the deposit is used for repairs (if any) that need to be made to the property.
