Question by DENISE G: I have filed lemon law on my vehicle and the dealership has damaged more during repairs. Help. What to do???

Best answer:

Answer by mott the hoople
the lemon law doesn’t apply to things a dealer messes up. it is for problems a vehicle has from the factory that cannot be resolved by the dealership in a timely fashion. the dealer just needs to buck up and admit it, if they were at fault ,and replace the damaged parts.

just to add little more…
one respondent stated that the warranty included dealer screw-ups. no it does not. the dealer pays for a screw up out of their own pocket. unless they try to cover it up and make it a warranty issue. but they can get in big trouble in a warranty audit if they get caught doing things like this. lemon law issues generally include drive train, severe drivability, or safety issues. all your problems are cosmetic. gm buying back a vehicle for a discolored dash would be highly unlikely. gm will, however, put pressure on the dealer to correct the problem as expeditiously as possible. i don’t know if you live in a rural area that has few dealers (like myself), but remember you don’t have to take it to the selling dealer for warranty work. you can go to any gm dealer to have warranty repairs performed. if you haven’t already called the customer assistance # in your owners manual, do so. there is no need to enlist a lawyer for these problems as most lemon law issues are handled through 3rd party arbitration. but as i stated earlier i doubt if this would ever go to a buy back situation.

Question by : Can I do it? Is it Legal?
I would like to ask this question. I love law and I love to educate myself with all the different laws. However, I do not want to be a lawyer. Can I write up my own legal forms and also if I tell people about a law I understand it to be, is that in violation of any laws? I have a 3″ binder with debt laws, legal forms, renter laws, etc. Best advice would be awesome. And Thank you so much for your time.
TIP: Details when answering the questions would be awesome.
A special Thanks to: Sunny S and Enigma and Mystery. I love both of your answers. I do read up on law, but I am not very clear as to what is considered “practicing law” and what is consider “Safe and legal”. Just so I may be clear, I do not have any law degrees, nor license for such. Thank you all once again! =)

Answer by Vegalawyer
I am a San Francisco Personal Injury Lawyer. You should visit some of the links I cited for information on becoming an attorney. I always advise people to test out a few areas of law b/f or during law school to make sure that is something you’ll like to do. Try is out, whether it be personal injury law, employment law, accident law (car, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents) or cor prate law etc.,

The following link will give details about the requirements to becoming a lawyer

Here’s an excerpt from that link:

“To be admitted to practice law in California, an applicant must:
1. Complete the necessary general education;
2. Register with the Committee of Bar Examiners as a law student or attorney applicant;
3. Complete the requisite legal education;
4. File an application to take the First-Year Law Students’ Examination and pass, or establish exemption from the examination;
5. File an application to take the bar examination and after eligibility has been confirmed, take and pass the examination;
6. File an application for a moral character determination and receive a positive moral character determination from the Committee of Bar Examiners;
7. File an application, take the Multi state Professional Responsibility Examination and achieve a minimum scaled score as determined by the Committee of Bar Examiners, which examination is administered and graded by the National Conference of Bar Examiners; and,
8. Be in compliance with California court ordered child or family support obligations.”

Most law school require a 4 year degree and taking an LSAT. The LSAT is a required test. The LSAT is very important to most school so make sure you practice before taking it. A list of average applicant LSAT scores for law schools is found in US.

Most people have to take loans out to pay for school which can be expensive. Law school lasts 3 years if done full-time or 4 if done part-time.

As for felonies, that could become an issue for financial aid and passing moral charact requirements.

Good Luck

Question by Brandy W: How can I get a law firm to pay for my law degree?
I’ve heard that larger law firms will pay for your law school if you commit to work for them afterwards. Where can I find information about this?

Best answer:

Answer by neniaf
You would have to already be employed by them. The larger law firms would NEVER commit to hire a law school graduate before they ever started law school, unless the person was currently working for them as a paralegal and they knew the value of that individual. Even so, I’ve known a number of people who had been working as paralegals for large firms, who continued to work for those firms during law school, and who got hired by those firms as attorneys afterward, and even they didn’t get their tuition paid for by the firm. It must be an unusual situation for them to do that.

In June 1855 the church was broken into and the poor boxes forced open and contents stolen. The thieves then turned their attention to the communion plate, but as this was not kept in the church, their efforts to steal it were in vain.

Later declared redundant, the church became a venue for the BBC’s orchestral concerts. Now as the St George Music Trust it hosts many performances from a wide range of musicians.

St. Luke’s Church, (Church of England)

There was a serious fire here in January 1871 discovered by PC Newton about six o’clock on a Saturday morning . He at once gave information at the Bedminster police station and a large number of police were despatched with the hose etc while a telegram was sent to the central station and the whole of the city fire brigade attended the scene. Even so the fire was not extinguished until damage amounting to about £1000 was done. Nearly twenty pews situated immediately under and extending from the pulpit were entirely destroyed, most of them having fallen through the demolished floor into the cellar beneath. A great many others were so badly burned that they needed to be replaced by new ones.

The flooring was so badly damaged it had to be renewed and the pulpit was very badly scorched but the chancel, being wholly of stone with the exception of the choir stalls sustained very little damage. The roof was also scorched and blistered but to a lesser degree while the organ and gallery, both at the west end were badly affected by the intense heat . The pillars and walls were smoke blackened but beyond that were not much damaged, The firemen and police were assisted by a large body of onlookers who carried buckets of water to the fire and fortunately the building was insured in the Norwich Union Fire Office, so damage was ‘amply covered’. The fire originated in the overheating of the flue and services were held in the school room until the repair work was completed.

This was the church of the Rev D S Doudney. In January 1883 he made a newspaper appeal ‘earnestly solicits the kind contributions to enable him to meet the many claims of the poor and necessitous of the parish’. In 1903 the churchwardens were W. W. Baker and C. Shipton. The organist was Mr Bishop. The clerk and sexton was Mr Fielding, 162 York Road.

Edward Follwell and Son, carriage proprietors

The taxicab or hackney carriage is a vehicle which is allowed to ply the streets looking for passengers to pick up and although these were originally horse drawn they are now motorised. In order to operate they must be licensed by the local authority and this was also the case earlier in their history as Edward Follwell Snr. and Edward Follwell Jnr were to find when they fell foul of the regulations in 1881.

The first horse-drawn hackney carriages plied their trade in Bristol in 1722, operating from the yards of some of the principal inns rather than from stands on the street. New regulations in 1749 gave local authorities the power to regulate the trade and the first regulated hackney carriage, or "coach No 1", appeared on a stand at the Exchange in 1783. By 1787, there were 20 vehicles in the city. Regulations were established to govern hours of service and a schedule of fares. There are also penalties for drivers refusing to go within a 10-mile journey.

In August 1881, hackney carriage drivers Edward Follwell Snr (of Brunswick Square, Bristol) and his son, Edward Follwell Jnr (of Upper York Street,, Bristol) broke the law. Having the same name, they used a single licence to cover both their carriages. Mr Follwell Jnr was fined 10s and both drivers were ordered to apply for licenses in their own names.

Today there are over 700 taxi drivers registered in the Bristol area.

The Zigzag path runs from Hotwells up to the Clifton Suspension Bridge. It’s a fun path to walk up and see the gorge from a different angle but it’s not for the faint hearted.

There is a local Bristol story that Queen Victoria played on the Zigzag as a young girl. The Zigzag is the path that takes pedestrians down the Avon Gorge, from Sion Hill to the Portway over 200 feet below. It comes out at the bottom of the gorge near the Colonnade, which is next door to Rock House. In July 1830 (before Clifton Suspension Bridge had been completed) the Zigzag came out to the left of Henry Seward’s 1822 Hotwell House.

Zion Chapel, Bedminster (Congregational) Listed as at ‘corner of Bedminster and Coronation Roads’ in 1839, Zion Chapel was built at the expense of Mr John Hare. In January 1832 thieves broke into the chapel, to find that nothing of value was kept there. They carried away some small articles, but were later taken into custody. David Thomas began his minstry here on 3rd January 1836.

Wednesday October 7th 1857 was a day of Fast, Humiliation and Prayer throughout the city because of the Indian Mutiny. There were two services at the chapel. In the morning a United Devotional Service was held and in the evening a service conducted by Rev George Wool, the sermon from Isaiah ch 42, v 23,24,25, ‘Who among you will give your ear to this, who will hearken and hear for the time to come……’ There was a collection for the Indian Relief Fund amounting to £6 6s 3d.

Frederick Tovey of 7, Zion Road, Bedminster was charged at Bristol Police Court in January 1884 with supplying milk ‘not of the nature and quality demanded’. It had been adulterated with 30% water. Edith Padfield, a little girl, whose father just happens to have been a police constable said she saw Ada, Mr Tovey’s daughter adding water to the milk. Mrs Ellen Tovey and Ada were called and denied it, but Mr Tovey was fined with costs.

Question by Chi Guy: Thus, anything that is legal must be alright according to the abortion supporters? Therefore…?
Since everything Bush is doing is legal (as in changing the law to make it so), no abortion rights person should have anything negative to say about what he is doing. Right?
As of now, warrant-less wiretaps are legal. Bush declaring anyone he chooses to be an enemy combatant can be Gitmoed, and that too is now legal.

Thus, the law is the law. Mexico trucks trailblazing across the fruited plains of the US is also now legal.
coragryph (below) I’m dove tailing off of reponders that simply state its legal, with no other arguement than that. You gave examples and comparisons.

Answer by coragryph
Nobody (other than you, apparently) is actually saying that.

Just because it’s legal doesn’t make it moral — one has nothing to do with the other. But laws are laws, and usually those different laws are different for a reason.

And no, not everything Bush is doing is legal — many things he does are in violation of federal laws — which is precisely the problem.

As for the changes to FISA and the Gitmo detentions — the Constitution still trumps (is a higher law than) federal statutes — so just because something is allowed by federal statutes doesn’t make it legal.

The Supreme Court has not yet ruled on the MCA or Bush’s warrantless wiretapping — but every ruling prior to this has said that those programs are illegal.
