A: The statute you quoted is incomplete. It should read 735 ILCS 5/ ___ and a number after the slash in order to point to a relevant section of the statute that your landlord is reading. At any rate, you are not required to give thirty days notice unless it specifically states so in your lease. Assuming you have no contract with your landlord and no specific clause in the lease regarding the amount of notice you must give, you do not have to stay and pay march rent. Sounds like he/she does not have a renter yet. You may want to have an attorney review your lease and send him a letter for a minimum fee.
A: Well, its your lucky day. The amount of check from the insurance was based upon an estimate of damage provided to them by their adjuster or an outside body shop. The fact that the body shop charged you less in the end should not change the amount of the check from the insurance. If the check is made out to the body shop and not you, you can ask the body shop to reimburse you for the remaining $2,500, but I strongly recommend you have them place in writing that they owe you a refund of $2,500 before you give them the check. Make sure you tell the body shop you have a large deductible --they don't need to know the amount. If you have any questions, feel free to contact an attorney to follow up.
A: The school has no obligation to allow students into the dance without first obtaining a release relating to Covid. Since they are hosting a gathering, no doubt their attorneys recommended releases to be signed as a condition of attendance. However, as much as some school officials may want to, the school cannot physically force someone to wear a mask. Your question does not indicate so, but presumably the school will be requiring or requesting participants to wear masks. Unfortunately, this is an emerging area of law the Supreme Court has not yet addressed. Since you have no legal standing to require the school to enforce a mask mandate, and no doubt school officials (as individuals) disagree on masks, your best bet is to avoid large gatherings where you see people are not wearing masks.
