Legal Answers
Q. Im a landlord and my tenant has gotten an animal neglect charge from the city, is it on me at that point to evict her?
A: Any attorney would need to know more to fully answer your question. For instance, does the tenant claim the animals a service animals? Can the tenants be given a no-cause eviction under the new laws limiting no-cause evictions? Do the tenants have any potential counterclaims? Can you prove a for-cause reason under ORS 90? I could probably come up with at least 10 more questions. You need a full analysis with an understanding of the full circumstances and then there needs to be a strategy once the applicable laws are analyzed in relation to your situation. Thus, in my legal opinion it would be malpractice to answer your question without more context.
Q. I need to know how to get my stolen cat returned. Unfortunately, it’s not taken as seriously as, say, a car.
A: You might want to consider small claims court in light of the fact that most attorneys charge $300-$400 per hour. You cannot have an attorney in small claims court. If you obtain a judicial order for in junctive relief for the return of the cat, she would be in contempt of court if she does not return the cat. However, I do not know if a court would enforce a contempt charge under these circumstances. I am sorry about your cat. I am sure your cat misses you.
Q. Can i sue the dealership?
A: It sounds like you may have enough evidence for a potential lawsuit. Of course, an attorney would need to verify the content of the contract and the diagnostic tests. This is a malpractice case and a breach of contract case. It is a breach of contract because they are not honoring the warranty you claim exists. It is a malpractice case because they are saying nothing is wrong with the car and another mechanic is saying there is something wrong with the car. Is the new mechanic willing to testify regarding the issues with the vehicle? Normally, a demand letter with supporting documentation is sent by an attorney prior to filing a lawsuit.
