Legal Answers
154 Questions Answered
Q. What are Colorado laws regarding inheriting property held as tenants in common?
A: Typically, if no will exists then the state’s intestacy statute would govern. If you have questions you should contact an attorney.

You will most likely need to open probate and resolve any property issues that way. For Tenants In Common, ownership typically passes without regard to the other owner. Joint Tenancy With The Right Of Survivorship is different. You need someone to look at the deeds, check for wills, and then determine what everyone should have. This is not something that can or should be done in this forum.
Q. can you share your political views in your classroom if you're a teacher in colorado
A: Aw, the question of does the 1st amendment apply in a classroom. The answer is that it depends. Private schools have no obligation to allow free speech. The 1st amendment only applies to government actors. Now some schools will permit such speech because it is good for the learning environment.

Now, if you teach at a public school then it becomes a much more complicated question. Sorry, you would need to discuss your situation with an attorney. You need to consider how the school will react; how your students will react; if your speech is detrimental to your job; the type of speech, and so on.

Typically fighting words, profanity, and certain types of speech while speech may not be permitted in certain environments. It makes sense. If I walk into a courthouse yelling about my political beliefs, it does not matter if the topic is political because I am interrupting the court. Hence, time, place, and manner restrictions.

Unfortunately, if you are really concerned you need to talk to an attorney to try to flush out how far you can push a subject. Welcome to Amercia 2024.

Q. Can the landlord legally install video cameras inside my restaurant and monitor my activities?
A: That is rather odd. Some leases provide for the Landlord to handle security but video cameras interfering with the operation of the business may be an issue. You may want to contact an attorney.

This could be a breach of quiet enjoyment or the implied covenant of good faith. I have never seen a commercial lease stating the Landlord can monitor inside the business. It may make sense in a jewelry store but it seems odd in a restaurant.

I like to use a gut check when looking at commercial leases. If it seems crazy, then it most likely is. At that point, you need to dig into the lease to see if crazy is authorized or not. Unfortunately, Colorado is very liberal about what can be placed in a commercial lease. So video monitoring may be completely valid. But you need an attorney to look at the lease.
