I Am A Commercial Litigation Attorney, But Have Very Little Experience With Bankruptcy. Here Is A Situation That A Family Member Has Found Herself In.
Filed For Chapter 13 In 1991.
Last Week, They Received A Letter From Nco Financial Systems Attempting To Collect A Debt For An Account Held From 1983 To 1991. The Bill Has Almost Tripled Due To Interest Charges.
My Question Is Wouldn'T This Debt Have Been Discharged With The Bankruptcy In 1991. They Can'T Come Collecting Now Can They?
Any Cites To Bankruptcy Code Or Caselaw Would Be Appreciated.
Just from personal experience having gone through a personal bankruptsy, I'd say no they can't. The statute of limi-
tations is seven years. They have until that time, to demand
payment. After that, they no longer have the right. But there
are those who are persistant, and will try to scare the debtor
into paying, even if they don't have the legal right to do so.
Sometimes persistance pays.
Is Anyone Really Surprised About Edwards After All He Is A Trail Lawyer
Lousy Slip And Fall Lawyers Have No Maorals
You bring up a good point. One of my relatives recently married a prominent trial lawyer in my city. He really doesn't make that much money, considering he is only an associate and not a partner. Yet he is a really slimy guy and really isn't that bright. Back when I still talked to him he would always engage in debates with me. He is one of those really hyper guys with an inflated ego. I don't go to family events when he is there, since he is always trying to prove his intelligence to me. Your question might alienate some people, and while I'm not saying all trial lawyers are like this, the one in my family probably cheats on my relative.
Does A Mesothelioma Lawyer Only Deal With Mesothelioma Cases?
A mesothelioma lawyer has training on laws so he can handle any other legal problems though as a mesothelioma lawyer he specializes on the disease, the causes, statutes about it, renumeration, etc. Usually such lawyers also handle other civil cases. It is just a matter of specialization that is why they are called mesothelioma lawyers.
What Is Your Honest Assessment Of John Edwards Type Trial Attorneys?
If he were strictly a class action attorney who truly helped those in a REAL victim role I would respect what he does (assuming he charges a reasonable percentage)
But what his kind does is force the prices up on the rest of Americans by suing ANYONE for ANY perceived wrong...he is not asking for reform, he only asks for compensation...then Wait's for the next victim...
Why do you think health care is so expensive...google malpractice insurance rates...it's eye opening.
Indeed, Jury Verdict Research, of Horsham, Pa., reports that nearly half of all awards in medical malpractice cases topped $1 million in 1999, the most recent period for which data are complete. Simply settling a claim cost an insurer $650,000, up 30 percent in a single year.
* St. Paul said it paid out catastrophic sums -- more than $1 million -- twice as often in 2000 as in 1999: 54 cases versus 27.
* In 2000, a Philadelphia jury socked four physicians and two hospital defendants for $100 million for bad outcomes suffered by a baby born at 26 weeks of gestation.
* A Texas jury returned an $11 million malpractice verdict and a West Virginia jury tried to award $2 million to a plaintiff despite a state cap of $1 million.
Not surprisingly, these areas of the country have seen some of the most staggering rises in physician liability insurance premiums. PHICO bumped the price to Texas doctors 83 percent last year. West Virginia obstetricians paid an average of $75,155 in 2001, while their colleagues next door in Kentucky were charged only $41,661.
Obstetricians, neurosurgeons, emergency physicians and other high-risk specialists have absorbed the brunt of the blow. It can cost an ob-gyn in South Florida $209,000 a year to insure for delivery of babies.
Can I Do A High Profile Job (Lawyer,Doctor) Even If I'M Diagnosed With Nld/Nvld (Non Vocal Learning Disorder)?
I'M Really Desperate For My Future.
I Am Diagnosed With A Disability But That Isn'T An Excuse To Not Study, I Even Use The Advantages Of This Disorder To It'S Full Potential (Hence I'M Really Good At Theater And Oral Reading).
And I Get Moderately Good Notes--, Well Except For Sewing Where The Teacher Just Tells Us What To Do (Which I Can'T Seem To Form Like A Cryptic Puzzle, Annoying) And Gym (Well Not All Of It, Just The Motor And Teamwork Placed Sports Like Basketball, Soccer Etc).
I have NLD. I work in Education as a Substitute Teacher and Tutor. Working in high-profile careers is possible for people like us, just far more difficult.
What has really helped me is self-accommodating when possible. In my case, that means focusing on small group and 1-on-1 settings.
Ca Dui Laws??
Okay Lets Say You Get Pulled Over For A Possible Dui And You Ask To Go To The Hospital To Get A Blood Test Then You Get A Ticket (Never Go To Jail) Then The Dmv Calls You And Tells You Your Licence Is Going To Be Suspended But You Havnt Been Convicted Of Anything By Any Court. Does The Right To A Quick And Speedy Trial Apply? So Basically If You Dont Get A Trial Set In 45 Days Does That Mean That Your Chances Of A Dismissal Are Good... Thanks Ohh And I Dont Drink (Thank God) So Save The Dont Drink And Drive Comments
Agree with Mikeysco. In California, and in most states, DMV can (and does) take action against you regardless of any criminal proceedings. It's considered a civil matter between you and the DMV. You can request a hearing with the DMV (you usually only have about 10 calendar NOT business days to do so, so definitely get on it!), though they may charge a fee for that (depending on the state - in CA it's about $125). In that hearing, they'll review the evidence against you and you get to try and defend yourself. If you weren't convicted / no charges have been filed, and the blood test comes back low, there's a good chance you could get off, but it's not easy. There are two reasons why:
1. The DMV hearing is a teleconference conducted by a DMV rep who acts as the "judge" and also as the prosecuter. They admit their own agency's evidence against you into the proceeding and then decide if it's good evidence, which is just insane but it is what it is.
2. Civil matters are determine by a "proponderence of the evidence" instead of the more rigorous "by a reasonable doubt" (the criminal version). That means that they just have to decide that you were more likely to have been driving drunk than not (i.e. 51% chance you did it) which is really easy to do. If a blood test came back with any decent amount of alcohol in your system, there's almost nothing you can do - blood tests are the most reliable test to determine alcohol concentration so there's no room for questions about reliability (unlike breath tests which are known to be somewhat unreliable). And DMV can take your license for less than whatever the "legal limit" is (typically .08%). Meaning, if you had .05% or so, they can still take your license. Of course, a criminal court can do the same thing - they usually will try to charge you with a "wet reckless" instead of a DUI if it's below .08% but they will often try to charge you with a crime regardless, so the whole legal limit thing is a misnomer at best.
One thing is for sure, if you get pulled over with any measurable amount of alcohol in your system, you run the risk of both a civil / DMV legal case and a criminal case against you. It's the only situation where you get effectively prosecuted twice and the two cases (civil and criminal) have nothing to do with each other, so if one finds you innocent, it does not mean that the other will.
If you're really in this situation, I wish you luck because it's very messy.
