It is entirely legal to discriminate on arbitrary grounds. What is not legal is to discriminate on the basis of a protected category, for example race. The law say that you cannot favor or disfavor a customer because of their race. Federal law specifically prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, or national origin, but not age or ...

A week is 7 days, so 2 weeks is 14 days. There is no general rule that weekends and holidays do not count as days, and "business day" is only a loosely-defined popular term (e.g. is a business is closed on Monday, that would not be a business day for that business). There is no significance difference between the NYT and the Post from the perspective of ...

The usual default rule is that a purchaser is bound to honor a lease on the same terms as the previous owner, and that purchase agreements are subject to existing valid leases. However, the Ontario Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 (S.o. 2006, chapter 17) section 49 (2) says: If a landlord who is an owner as defined in clause (a) or (b) of the definition ...

Do I give my letter 60 days from the end of the contract, or 60 days before September? My boss told me that it would be 60 days before the end of the contract, but I wanted a second opinion. Your boss is wrong. The contract requires a party to give a 60-day notice only if the party intends to override the default condition that "the contract shall ...

Would the court simply ignore the filed motion for modification? Generally not. Generally, once an attorney enters an appearance, the client is allowed to communicate with the court only through ...

It appears from your post that (1) the plaintiff amended the complaint (i.e., what you think was "just an update"); (2) you did not know that you had a deadline to file responsive pleadings to that amended complaint; and (3) having missed your deadline, the plaintiff filed a motion for default judgment. Your mention [in the comments] that the plaintiff ...

Either It seems that this is an annual contract and the expectation of both parties is that it will be (semi-)automatically renewed. This expectation is probably an implicit term of the contract even if it isn't explicitly spelled out. If you give 60 days notice on 30 April, the notice period and the contract will both expire on the same day (30 June) and ...

In most states there is a set of official criteria for a newspaper to be eligible for placement of legal advertisements. There is usually a minimum frequency of issue, and a minimum circulation. Or there may be a list of officially acceptable papers, revised from time to time. Any paper meeting those official criteria is probably OK. In a contract, there is ...

The legal situation is unclear. I assume that only F1 has a written lease with the property owner for a tenancy at will, and that F1's arrangement with F2 is informal (if there is a written contract, that would govern the situation). In lieu of specific statutes governing the situation, F2 would have no notice obligation to F1 unless there is an agreement ...
