Q. PARK ‘N FLY is US Service Mark registered Does the following in any way unlawful “”
A: Good question, probably belongs in the Trademarks category since Trademarks and Servicemarks are the same set of rules. Your question would boil down to whether an objective consumer would be confused by the domain, if they would be then it would potentially be an infringement. That said, a good attorney (I'm not one to brag ;) would be able to poke many holes in any claim that it was infringing, but like a good magician doesn't give away his secrets...
Q. I’m sued for leaving a bad review on Better Business Bureau for bad customer service
A: Depends on the review, but they are probably seeking damages for defamation and harm to their business reputation. These are fact intensive and "truth" is an absolute defense. You need to get a lawyer to defend yourself or your company.
Q. Statue of Limitations for Article 78
A: While I'd need to see the actual letter to give the most accurate advice / opinion, I can say this. An Article 78 is essentially an appeal of a decision of an NY or NYC agency such as the Dept. of Health / Dept. of Vital Statistics, in order to successfully appeal the decision by the dept. / agency you need to show that they had no basis under the law for what they did (among other reasons). That being the case it depends entirely on the basis for the denial as to whether you should start an Art. 78 proceeding. Now, as to the time or statute of limitations issue, I am not aware of ANY statute of limitations on correcting a defect in a birth certificate and I'd be pretty shocked if there is one because no matter the time frame the gov't has a compelling interest in recording accurate birth records.
Q. Is computer code a language protected by the first amendment?
A: I'm unaware of any case that says it's not afforded the protections...
Q. If I purchase another member's interest in an LLC, does that mean I own proportionally the LLC's assets?
A: Yes. If you buy the LLC interest you own a percentage of the LLC and it's assets, the LLC also may have liabilities so perform your due diligence thoroughly. A decent attorney can assist you in this transaction.
Q. I need a lawyer to represent me for unemployment,and sexual harassment and workplace violence.
A: Email privately, I can assist.
Q. Employer is slated for a takeover 2 weeks prior to my due date. Will I still qualify for NYS paid family leave?
A: You're likely an employee at will, meaning every day you show up voluntarily and you can be terminated with or without cause. When your company gets taken over presumably the new employer will immediately implement their existing policies and you will not have the benefit of prior policies. I'd be happy to discuss this in more detail with you and I think it is warranted in this situation to do so. Please feel free to email me.
Q. Is it possible to claim legal ownership over all the dark matter in this universe?
A: I actually am the deed owner of said dark matter, I got it at a foreclosure sale in Queens, NY a few years back.
Q. Hello, I wish to seek legal advice on a house I was in a contract to buy. Seller backed out randomly and sold it.
A: There may have been an action for specific performance to sell to you, but if your lawyer backed out of the deal without your knowledge or consent then it sounds like you potentially have a malpractice action against him/her. That said, I'm highly skeptical that there was no "time limit" clause on the mortgage....
