Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. with regard to the recording of phone conversations, does the calling party state consent law apply to the call?
A: Each state has statutes controlling the issue of whether their citizens can or cannot record conversations of other people without informing the other parties; the federal rule is that recordings are legal if only one party consents. You should consult a Kansas lawyer.
Q. I quit my job after I realized my boss was laundering money from the company. Now she's being questioned by law
A: No, not unless you were personally involved in the money laundering crimes yourself. However, if your ex-boss knows that you are aware of the money laundering, she may either try to get you to lie about it for her, or--worse yet--might lie about you being involved to the law enforcement authorities investigating the crimes. Consider hiring a lawyer now.
Q. If I don't go to small claims court will I be arrested
A: Not in Florida; and I suspect the law is the same in Ohio. Small claims courts handle CIVIL matters; arrests are only made in CRIMINAL matters.
Q. Is it legal for a landlord to make you pay a $25 monthly fee for trash pick up at your door on top of a trash fee?
A: Yes, perfectly legal as long as the landlord informed new tenants or included that information in the written lease.
