A contract agreeing to share 50% of the profits from the game with him would be legal but it would be unwise, because it could create a general partnership, depriving him of the benefits of limited liability associated with the LLC. The better course would be to amend the Operating Agreement of the LLC so that he would be a "Class B" member and to provide ...

Arizona recognizes non-compete agreements. Taser Intern., Inc. v. Ward, 231 P.3d 921 (2010) reflects the relevance of the existence non-compete agreement. However, the mere existence of a non-compete clause does not guarantee it will be judicially enforced or recognized. The not-binding opinion Treeline Design Group, Inc. v. Gonshorowski reflects an ...

The pawn shop has the "use of property" of their own premises. The pawn shop has obviously the right to examine the gun to determine its value, for example, or to clean it if it needs cleaning to avoid damage, or to show it to a potential customer. And the pawn shop is allowed to let the police onto their own premises, even without a search warrant.

They almost surely have no liability to you for the loss of, or damage to, your property, as the standard rental agreement that you signed almost certainly relieves them of this responsibility. If you have insurance (even though you didn't provide them with proof of insurance) that would probably cover your loses. If not, you are probably just screwed and ...

From US v Sumlin 567 F.2d 684 at 688 (6th Cir. 1977) The holding of Matlock focused on whether or not the "permission to search was obtained from a third party who possessed common authority over or other sufficient relationship to the premises or effects sought to be inspected."

Most employment in the US is "at will". That means that the employer or the employee can terminate the relationship without notice for any reason or for no reason. There are certain statutory protections that limit this, however, such as federal protections against discrimination on the basis of a protected characteristic. Arizona may have other ...

You need to hire an attorney to deal with your specific situation. I won't offer a judgment of the likelihood that you would prevail in court, but I will point to some basic principles that suggest there could be a problem with the agreement. The case of Orca Communications Unlimited, LLC v. Noder is relevant for Arizona law. Some relevant principles spelled ...

IANAL; I am not your lawyer. If you want specific legal advice, retain a lawyer. In general, non-compete clauses in employment contracts need four things (Arizona source: https://www.allenlawaz.com/non-competes-legal-arizona/): 1) They need to be reasonable in their terms 2) They need to be limited geographically 3) They need to be limited temporally 4) ...

Arizona law operates in terms of "spirituous liquor", which is defined as containing more than 0.5% alcohol by volume. You'd have to send the cheese to a lab to determine the actual alcohol content, but it is likely that the product has less than the threshold amount of alcohol. It is not clear why vanilla extract is not classified as a spirituous liquor, ...

Nolo appears to have a good explanation. The probate court will have to confirm that the children are yours before they can inherit. Your children would inherit any separately held assets that don't have a beneficiary associated with them. You should make sure your spouse (or kids) are the beneficiaries on any retirement accounts, bank accounts, life ...

Yes, there is. 2016 Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 23, Section 352 provides that an employer cannot withhold wages except when, among other things, The employer has prior written authorization from the employee.

So the setup would be that you own an LLC owning the game, and your friend gets 50% of the profits. And suddenly the game gets very successful, and your friendship ends. As the owner of the LLC, you decide for example what salaries are paid. If lots of money comes in, you change your salary to $50,000 a month, and suddenly there are no profits anymore. ...

As I found to my misfortune , get a lawyer for a business contract. The wording needed can be subtle and important.

It very simply and clearly states the following: I am automatically opted in and would have had to opt out (typical). As a member I MUST comply with document requests (not typical). It is certainly permissible to subject class members to discovery obligations like a party in any other lawsuit. Also, even if you were not a party, any party to the ...

The public defender says he regularly only gets discovery a day or two in advance, and in my case as I stated, only the morning of. Is this court misconduct? It is a serious breach of substantive criminal law (it is called a Brady violation) not to turn over discovery prior to a plea or trial, and it is also an ethical violation not to do so. Failure ...

Is any of this back story pertinent to the case? Should I inform the court? Not really. How the child gets born or the intention of the parties at the time doesn't matter. Can I be arrested/otherwise additionally penalized for my situation? If you are subject to a child support order and don't pay, but have the ability to pay, you can be held in ...

Under ARS 33-1308, which is part of the Arizona Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, the usual landlord/tenant requirements and protections do not apply to "Occupancy under a contract of sale of a dwelling unit or the property of which it is a part, if the occupant is the purchaser or a person who succeeds to his interest", which may apply to this situation. ...

No. Once a check is handed over to someone else, it becomes their property. They can do with it what they want: cash it immediately, cash it next week, burn it, sign it over to someone else, etc. You can certainly remind them to cash their checks though. As an employer in Arizona, you can fire someone for almost any reason, or no reason at all. In Arizona,...

Various states have cancellation laws guaranteeing a certain right of convenience to cancelling a renewable contract: Arizona is not one of them. (Additionally, some states have service-specific laws such as gym membership cancellation laws, which I assume is not relevant here though in Arizona it includes cancellation by certified letter). In general, the ...

Probably not but I googled "require direct deposit Arizona" and saw an article that said - Arizona Allows Employers to Mandate Electronic Payment of Wages. Effective on July 20, 2011, employers in Arizona can mandate electronic payment of wages.

It seems that the second interpretation is the correct one, the first one was from an old version of the law, it was changed in 2012 to the current text. (the previous text read "Intellectual property that is a trade secret as defined in section 44-401 and that is contained in:")

Are they liable for repairs to the dishwasher when the lease is over? Yes, but that is because of the presumption that the proximate cause for the dishwasher breaking is its usage by the tenant or tenant's household. To overcome liability, the tenant would have to prove that the dishwasher broke prior to the start of the lease. If it matters, the reason ...

Regardless of the suggestion (in the comments) to get an employment lawyer, you may want to ascertain independently whether Arizona law requires you to "exhaust administrative remedies" prior to filing a lawsuit. I have seen multiple cases where plaintiffs' attorney omitted that step, filed the lawsuit straight in court, and the lawsuit got dismissed --with ...

According to the Rules of Civil Procedure for the Superior Courts of Arizona: "A party may move for an order compelling disclosure or discovery." If that order is granted, and you don't comply, then presumably this applies: (2) Sanctions by the Court Where the Action Is Pending. (A) For Not Obeying a Discovery Order. If a party or a party's officer, ...
