Fighting a bus lane violation with unclear signage. Where in NYC code of law does it say there needs to be clear signage to ticket?
Jury Duty: Nothing to do there but chill and write a TR. Kinda like the beach but missing the view and ocean breeze.

Its not a code provision, you just need to demonstrate that there was no sign that indicated that it was a bus lane.

Four way stop sign. Approaching intersection from right side is a school bus before stop sign with lights flashing. I'm turning left. Assuming I'd still have to wait?
Though I am not sure what the law is, as a parent of children who ride a bus---YES---please.
Kids can be running from all sides to catch a bus.

In Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, New Mexico, Tennessee, Washington, and Wisconsin, the driving manual states that "You must stop whether the school bus is on your side of the road, the opposite side of the road or at an intersection that you are approaching."

State Laws: Stopping for School Buses

Any recommendations on a lawyer in Florida that deals with small civil cases in FL?

I had a supplier charge my card by mistake for an order I didn’t place ($5500), when I brought it up to them, they refunded twice by mistake. Credit card company (chase) said the merchant would have no way to reverse a refund. So I gave them my card info again to run another charge so they recover their second refund. A week later the merchant successfully reversed one of the refunds and still has my charge. Chase says they can’t dispute as it’s too far back (11 months).

Any ideas would greatly appreciate

I'm told I need a power of attorney document to have equally full control of my spouse's finances. Any guidance on the correct form or text would be appreciated.

Looking to try to recover valuable documents that were illegitimately “donated” to a Canadian museum decades ago. Anyone know what type of attorney would deal with something like this?

Is it okay to use an online service to make a "simple" will? Who gets the assets, kids, etc.

#justsaying... a simple will doesn't work well/seamlessly with halacha... and frum children might be able to fight their way in beis din.. leading to many, many ugly family disputes.

I don't know anything about wills, but based on experience with other areas of law, my general perspective is that simple documents might work if there's never any dispute over anything in the document, but the value of good legal drafting is that it should cover off many question marks and prevent or clarify potential disputes that arise long after the document is drafted.

In your case, if nobody disputes anything then maybe even a signed piece of paper saying "the house goes to Yankel, the Rolls Royce goes to Berel, etc" might work, but the moment anyone disputes anything that might go out the window. And obviously no parent ever thinks their kids are going to fight, but unfortunately it happens all too often.

Also, I imagine there might be other parties affected by a will, like a bank, business partner, etc. It's possible that things could get complicated in enforcing the will on third-parties if not properly drafted, even if all the kids are in agreement.

For young people without too much assets, a simple will is better than nothing.
Most important is replacement custody. Talk to the couple you'd like to raise your kids ch"v, to get their agreement.  Tell the grandparents who it is, so they don't rush in or start a fight.

A rental I own was damaged (not due to my fault or the fault of the tenant) and the unit was condemned by the local inspection dept. till repairs are done so the tenant is now homeless.  I did try finding him a new apt but was so far unsuccessful. Do I have any legal responsibilities to my tenant? (in NJ)

AFAF
Looking for a lawyer to advocate to the IRS.  Friend hasn't filed taxes for a few years. The late filing charges and such are tremendous.
There are advertisements around for tax people that help you pay "pennies on the dollar".  Are there any reputable people that can help?

I opened my car door and someone hit my door as I opened it. Who’s at fault?

I’m parked on the road close to the curb. I did not look to see if cars were coming. The fact that a car was driving so close to me to hit me if I opened it is my question.
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible
