Legal Answers
93 Questions Answered
Q. I've heard it suggested to quote this law when a business forces mask wearing against my will. Does this apply?
A: Umm... No. With all due respect, you'll just sound like a crazy person if you cite to a quotation from the Nuremberg Trials in response to being asked to wear a mask (presumably, for the purpose of preventing the proliferation of COVID-19). Private businesses can operate however they'd like to, assuming that they are doing so within the confines of the law. Good luck with your case!
Q. if I signed a retail motor vehicle lease agreement in NY and car was shipped to me in NY does this fall under NY law?
A: Yes. If the contract was signed in New York, in particular with a New York-based business, then it is almost definitely controlled by New York laws... assuming there's no arbitration agreement or Choice of Laws Clause in the contract. Good luck with your case!
Q. 1. How to find life insurance company's divisible surplus for last 15 to 30 years? 2.by insurance class? $0 div?
A: I'd recommend looking into New York's State's Unclaimed Funds registry, which can be found by clicking on this link: https://www.osc.state.ny.us/unclaimed-funds If you're entitled to funds that are unclaimed, they might be held by the State in escrow. Good luck with your case!
