In New England, town governments have always been relatively strong, and county governments relatively weak. Traditionally New England counties only provided courts, jails, and sheriffs. They did not provide the kind of services seen in other parts of the country, such as county roads, general government services for unincorporated areas, etc. Connecticut ...

What follows is a broad overview. I'm not an expert in this; I just have a bit of experience in this due to a tax situation my wife & I experienced a few years ago. Please do not rely on this advice except as a starting point for more Googling. Your obligations (and your assistant's) will depend on whether the assistant is an employee or an ...

The at-fault driver’s insurer has no liability to you The at-fault drive has liability (under the tort of negligence) for which their insurer indemnified them. Any negotiation or settlement offers that insurer makes is on behalf of the driver. The distinction is important because if you were to sue, you would sue the driver, not the insurer. What are they ...

The Ct. driver's manual p. 44 says that "Solid yellow lines may be crossed to make a left turn to or from an alley, private road, driveway, or street", and also "A double solid white line prohibits lane changing" (turning left is not the same as lane changing). In Washington, there is a fine of $136 for crossing a double white line, but this is related to ...

An analogy to towing companies is tempting but misplaced, since towing is a statutorily-authorized and regulated activity (e.g. RCW 46.55). You therefore cannot just charge an arbitrary storage fee for uncollected equipment, and it is highly unlikely that there is any provision in the contract which authorizes you to charge for storage. The question is why ...

This is a no win situation. People who try to stop in a safe public place fearing that the cop may be an imposter risk prosecution for resisting arrest. But, no one will offer you any remedy if the cop was an imposter who was victimizing you. One recommended course of action if you doubt a cop is real is to call 911 as you pull over to confirm that the cop ...

I think this is a reference to Section 14-224: (a) Each operator of a motor vehicle who is knowingly involved in an accident which results in the death of any other person shall at once stop and render such assistance as may be needed and shall give such operator’s name, address and operator’s license number and registration number to any officer or ...

Offices are normally rented by businesses, so for the tax appraiser, your situation would be quite out of the ordinary. They appear to be stone deaf to the idea that an office may be rented not for business purposes, and so they lump all office renters together. If they do not want to hear you, all you can do is to keep evidence that: You are an employee; ...

Some of the comments above point you in the right direction. Your town tax office got it right, but also wrong: what's really happening probably, is that your MA employer (not you) is conducting business in CT, likely without filing first for what is known as a Certificate of Authority. Your employer also has to file CT state and local (your town, in this ...

Concealing the contract from the mortgage company is probably credit fraud of sorts, but my view is that's the buyer's problem, not mine. Am I correct on that? He is guilty of fraud - using deception to receive a benefit. You are guilty of accessory to fraud. You are both guilty of conspiracy to commit fraud. Would it be a legal, enforceable ...

Can a contract alter a lease? Yes. A lease is a contract and, as such, is amenable to mutually agreed modifications. my view is that's the buyer's problem, not mine. Am I correct on that? Yes. The problematic scenario might be if you were planning to leave the building in the foreseeable future and the new buyer intentionally concealed that knowledge ...

Questions: Does B have the right to continue driving one (or both) vehicles until the divorce? Can A remove B from their auto insurance and force B to get their own? Is the answer to 1 or 2 different if B has custody of an infant from a prior relationship? (Could the use of a vehicle be deemed a necessary "support" if there is an infant ...

I think it is quite clear the bike driver was at fault due to speeding. The question is whether you were also at fault. You turned left into a car park. Oncoming traffic had the right of way. Your view was obscured. If you wanted to cross the left lane, you would have had to do this quickly enough so that if an oncoming vehicle entered your view, going at ...
