    [–] Selling business, buyer wants out but wants deposit back. YetAnotherFrreddy 2 points ago in legaladvice

    Florida has a version of the 'Statute of Frauds' at 725.01, Fla. Stat. Generally contracts for the sale of real estate can only be enforced if they are in writing, but there is some case law in Florida that holds that partial performance (like making a deposit?) can be a substitute fro a written agreement.

    Talk to a Florida real estate lawyer -- there's a reasonable chance you have a binding contract.

    [–] YouTube bans critical thinking... YetAnotherFrreddy 3 points ago in The_Donald

    If you read this literally no one can write about incidents where the victim is an actor or their family.

    [–] Winning and enforcing a judgement against someone who's in prison YetAnotherFrreddy 1 points ago in legaladvice

    The problem is going to be if he has assets you can find to satisfy any judgement you get against him.

    [–] Banning vpns now? :( YetAnotherFrreddy 2 points ago in gab

    I have connected less than an hour ago with a VPN. I'd guess that IP may be connected to DDOS activity?

    [–] My son paid debt that was not his own and now the creditor is coming after him. YetAnotherFrreddy 12 points ago in legaladvice

    Your son should talk to the Consumer Protection Division of the Ohio AG's office.

    [–] (Minn.) Can my husband's crazy mom claim our child? YetAnotherFrreddy 29 points ago in legaladvice

    Get the police involved. There is zero risk of grandma getting custody, although I would not be surprised if she tries to complain to social services (or whatever they're called in MN) that you are an unfit parent. Get a restraining (or protective) order. Make sure your kid's school know she is not to take the kid under any circumstances.

    Ignoring her is likely to result in escalating behavior. Don't risk it.

    [–] Soldering Iron YetAnotherFrreddy 4 points ago in AskElectronics

    At that price it's likely to be the worst sort of Chinese crap. A good iron makes a huge difference, especially as you are starting. If your budget allows, I'd go with a Hakko FX-888 (

    [–] If someone uses an illegally carried gun to stop a criminal, does the person with the gun face legal repercussions? YetAnotherFrreddy 2 points ago in legaladvice

    Assuming you're in a jurisdiction that requires a permit, you can be sure that your friend will be prosecuted if it comes to the attention of the police that he's carrying illegally. Use of an illegally carried gun might be justified by self-defense or the like, but that has no bearing on if having the gun was legal in the first place.

    [–] Found a lost checkbook, turned it into a store, getting calls about it [CO] YetAnotherFrreddy 48 points ago in legaladvice

    It sounds to me like the checkbook may have wound up in the parking lot after a robbery or something similar. You probably got IDed off surveillance video and your transaction details at the store.

    The cops insisting that you come in makes me think that you're a suspect, possibly only because you are the only person they can connect to the incident. Failing to cooperate further with the cops can't be used against you in court, but it could raise concerns in their mind that you have something to hide here.

    You should get a good local lawyer who does criminal defense, ideally one who has been a prosecutor in the same jurisdiction, then go talk to the cops together. I'd find the lawyer quickly, and have him see if there's video of you picking up the checkbook in the lot. Time could be an issue as lots of places record over old video.

    By no means go to the station or have further communication with the police about this without a lawyer, other than to politely say that you are concerned about the way they have reacted to your good deed, and that you will be happy to discuss the matter with your lawyer present.

    [–] Going camping in a tent in Africa YetAnotherFrreddy 2 points ago in SweatyPalms

    Double barrelled 12 gauge, and hope like hell the lion isn't hungry. The lion knows there is a person inside from smell and probably sound.

    [–] [VA] Was visiting a friend in his college campus dorm room and police arrived at the door YetAnotherFrreddy 2 points ago in legaladvice

    In some places campus cops have the power of arrest and so forth just like real cops, in others not. They always are aware of who they work for, which changes their approach.

    [–] [VA] Was visiting a friend in his college campus dorm room and police arrived at the door YetAnotherFrreddy 2 points ago in legaladvice

    Campus cops or real cops? Generally real cops would have run everyone, as lots of serious felons with open warrants get picked up in this kind of incidental contact.

    I wouldn't worry unless something further happens, which seems kind of unlikely.

    [–] [VA] Was visiting a friend in his college campus dorm room and police arrived at the door YetAnotherFrreddy 2 points ago in legaladvice

    In your situation I wouldn't be worried about trespassing. You certainly had good reason to believe that you were invited. I'd be more concerned about a probation violation for being present where drugs were being used, depending on the terms of your probation and exactly what the cops found.

    [–] Found some disturbing pictures pictures on my Uncle's computer but I'm not sure if they are illegal. YetAnotherFrreddy 1 points ago in legaladvice

    Could well be child porn. Don't post examples!

    Call the cops. One of the issues in these cases is not only if it's porn, but if uncle has been involved in abuse of underage girls.

    Probate or estate, they're essentially the same thing as far as practice areas go.

    [–] 18yo in California. Medical cannabis card vs gun rights YetAnotherFrreddy 12 points ago in legaladvice

    I'd try something other than weed. You run a risk of losing your gun rights nationally, and maybe even after the card is gone. Weed is still illegal under Federal law, and the Federal Gun Control Act still makes certain illegal drug users 'prohibited persons'.

    This is an area of fairly active Constitutional litigation now, but the ATF and the 9th Circuit have come down saying that having a card makes you a prohibited person. I'm not sure what would happen after the card is gone, but you couldn't change the fact that you once had it.

    Get a lawyer to help you petition to be appointed as personal representative and to walk you through the CA intestate succession rules.

    If he was telling the truth, there are several state and Federal crimes he committed. Go talk to the cops.

    [–] Looking to modify a backpack to be laptop friendly YetAnotherFrreddy 5 points ago in myog

    how about just running a line of stitching around an inch up from the bottom of the existing pocket to lift the bottom of the laptop up? probably easiest to hand sew with carpet needle and really heavy thread.

    But the zampolits are essential to maintain party control, and provide employment for otherwise unemployable loyalists, comrade.
