Q. My dog bit a delivery driver on his hand and scratched his chest almost 2 years ago.
A: Although not necessarily required, it’s probably in your best interest to hire a lawyer to handle this if you do not have dog bite coverage under your insurance. If you have dog bite coverage, then contact your insurance and they will handle it for you.

As for the landlord/tenant aspect of your question, your lease should protect you. If you have a one-year lease and are in compliance with all of its terms, then the landlord has no justification in trying to evict you.

However, I can tell you there are protections against firing someone based on racial discrimination, sex-based discrimination, in retaliation for reporting sexual harassment, in retaliation for filing a wage and hour complaint, or for another unlawful reason. You should speak with an employment attorney to see if a firing would constitute retaliatory conduct. Best of luck! ... Read More
