105 Questions Answered
Q. My mother law gave us her house after abandoning the house for 6 months and now she’s kicking us out
A: I don't spot a question, but my comment is that you might find your answer in the Michigan Landlord Tenant Handbook produced (in-part) by the law school at Michigan State University. At a quick glance it sounds as though you formed the landlord-tenant relationship, you've failed to make payment two months in a row, and now your mother is beginning the process of eviction for nonpayment.
Q. I was told you can’t stop someone from taking a non service dog into a grocery store. True or false?
A: Your employer might want to contact an attorney to consult with on this matter. In general, the Michigan Modified Food Code (MMFC) has a pretty broad prohibition of animals in food establishments, but there are exceptions for animals controlled by persons with a disability. The ADA offers some additional clarity on this matter as well, which indicates animals 'not in control' (barking) or animals that are emotional support companions may not be permitted in food establishments. But, in practice it isn't always easy to determine whether or not an animal is a service animal or a emotional support animal. Lastly, your employer will also want to be careful that the procedure (determine whether or not to allow or not allow an animal) is clear to employees so as to avoid violating law--on both ends--animals aren't allowed (unless they are).
Q. What happens if I don't go to zoom court over a restraining order
A: It might also help to understand that zoom court, is court.
