Last Night I had a friend over and we ordered a pizza with my card.

The driver never called never rang the bell, or anything . W assumed that the order didn't go through or we ordered too close to clpsong.

This morning we found the pizzas just sitting down on the door step in lime 80 degree weather. They were like warm and soggy.

Now...here's the thing. Nobody ever signed the receipt accepting payment for the pizza. The driver just left it there with an empty receipt and drove off.

It says clearly on the receipt "I accept payment of this transaction with my signature"

So how can they charge me if nobody signed it?

I called the manager and he claims payment goes through once you place an online order.

I checked online and nowhere does it say that. It also says "Our Guarantee, if you are unhappy with your order, we will replace it or refund you in full.

I'm thinking of calling my bank for a chargeback, but since my friend did place the order they could say we willingly agrees to pay. However that is based finally upon the signature on the receipt.

I've heard many stories of people refusing things and not signing their receipt due to poor customer service or such.

I have a picture of the receipt saying "I agree to pay...blab. Blah" but not on my phone.

If nobody signs a package for UPS or refuses a package they are not charged.

Do I have a case or no? Especially since the delivery driver and manager both acted like dicks and as if he knows how credit or debit cards work.

This was from dominoes.

I was told i should contact Corporate. Also I've never done a chargeback so I don't know what id say or do on the phone with the bank.

Considering services were not followed through do call your bank and they should' credit your account. No harm no foul. No services rendered though.

Do contact public relations and they should, (demand) they go beyond a replacement pizzas. They have bad public relations for like the past ten years to begin with.

Consider that they 'supposedly' just left the pizzas there. Made no real effort to knock ring the bell, and or didn't wait a simple minute or so. They should have tried to call plain and simple, they ask for a # always. Either the driver or from the store they should have tried to call. If management was indifferent note that, saying call 'corporate' is the wrong response. (public relations.) The "I accept payment of this transaction with my signature" is notable.


The "Our Guarantee, if you are unhappy with your order, we will replace it or refund you in full" should apply to a
pizza that was dumped, sideways, cold, soggy, inferior. This goes beyond that. Seek public relations and get
more than a replacement, explain this was important for whatever reason beyond just hanging out.

Did you use a credit card or debit card? Your title makes that unclear. The only time I've used debit-on-delivery I still had to give my PIN to their mobile thingy to finish the purchase and get the food.

If it's a credit card, call the company and say you dispute the charge. If they ask, tell them why. The lack of a signature on the receipt is all the proof you need. I worked pizza delivery for ten years and nobody with half a brain leaves a pizza on a doorstep, credit card or not. Until you have cash or a signature the driver is paying for the food. Your driver probably fucked off because he knew the manager wouldn't give a shit about the signature missing. Or maybe the driver faked one on his copy of the receipt. Either way, you're covered as long as you have your signature-less copy and if they did sign it, their sig doesn't match yours. This will all be for the credit card company to sniff out after you report it.

>>I called the manager and he claims payment goes through once you place an online order.

For a credit card, yes. But that's where purchase protection comes in to save your ass from thieves and jerks.

I work at a bar that sells cheap alcohol. We get a lot of dick heads that disrespect the staff, security & patrons.

Security is very patient but sometimes they let people step over the boundary, a boundary which old school bouncers would of grabbed the fucker by the collar and left his drunk arse on the pavement. The managers actually let these idiot's back in which is annoying for the bartenders & the security.

On a busy night like tonight there were only 2 guards in a busy bar, and even though I don't have a security license. Would I be allowed to physically apprehend a customer & under what circumstances would I be allowed to without getting myself in deep shit.

I know for certain that I'm going to have to back my boys up sometime in the future, because they're not going to be able to handle it and things could get very ugly before the cops arrive. I just don't know in what capacity. That "just let security handle it" mentality just isn't going to work, because after tonight these guys had their fucking hands full.


Our venue is decked out with CCTV so everything is recorded.

Thanks in advance

As far as I remember self-defence as a defense I think that's the right spelling, I always get them mixed up applies to people around you as well but you then you'd have to prove that it was reasonable force and all that shit and that gets messy. Protection of property is also included in self-defence too so if they're smashing shit up you can "defend" you property.

I know they're probably friends with you but you have no reponsibility to protect anything as a normal person. Security guards do have an obligation to protect the people around I think because of that doctor case that happened in SA or something if they're dressed or presenting themselves as security guards, but I'm not exactly sure. I don't know if it's different because you're a bartender and you might've signed something but you're not legally obligated to help out at all, and if you get hurt by a drunk person then it's the fault of the bar/security company/security guards as long as you didn't involve yourself first because then it's, so you can just get out of dodge if shit goes down if you want.

Also you gotta be real careful with "apprehending" them if you mean hold them down or restrict their ability to leave or anything like that because I can't remember exactly what wording they used on the Crimes Act for 'holding someone against their will' or whatever that crime is called so I can't find the section it's referred to but Victoria is REALLY fucking strict with that shit, so if someone you're "apprehending" wants to leave after doing something shitty at your bar, I'd let them leave ASAP and let the police find them after you call them.

You can hold a violent person down until the cops arrive that's all you can do, no arrests or handcuffs or anything else because you'll get a kidnapping/forcible confinement charge in pretty much every commonwealth country (Straya).

You can also punch them out if they're swinging at you or violent generally it's fine if you always respond 'to the same amount of force' so if they pull a knife and you decide to spear buddy through the neck with a broken bottle top then you walk. If you glass buddy on the head, it starts a fight, then you end up stabbing each other you go to jail because you started the fight that led to the manslaughter.

tl;dr just phone the cops until they remove the idiots, our laws are such shit only cops can get away with anything so why even bother trying yourself you'll just end up sued by them or jailed by the cops, let them handle it.

>Ohio extended it's Good Samaritan Law to include hard drug cases, but it won't take effect until mid September. In theory, it would protect people who call 911 for drug-related medical emergencies from misdemeanor charges. Legal precedent or no?

I know in Australia it goes by what the laws were at the time of the incident, and I think we got that from the British system too, so if America grabbed some of their laws and stuff from Britian when they left then it wouldn't have an effect.

Someone know this because I'm actually interested to see if there's a difference?

Pic unrelated. Background check question.
ALRIGHT: last year my dumb roommate was stealing and selling things online for rent money because she got fired. I'm all for it, but the law is not. I was with her and got the same charge because guilty by association. I'm sure my record states that I actually in fact did NOT have anything on my person and she did, but I'm worried.
I recently got accepted for a position at a college that's full time and would give me free education, thus changing my life. This job means the world to me, and other than inaccurate job dates because I have PTSD and am forgetful, that dang court record is the only thing that could fuck me over.
So I'm asking anyone with a criminal background or any knowledge on the matter: Do you think a college would reject me AFTER hiring me, upon discovery of a criminal history based on guilty by association? It's a low level customer service job, not like security or anything. (and luckily I have a huge security background and great references)
I'm just desperate for an opinion, as it's day 10 and the check should be complete any day now, I'm anxious as all hell! I don't want to go back to serving food....

what? bro you haven't even told us what the charge was. you dont even seem to know your self. for all we know you are accessory after the fact, receiving of stolen goods or some other crime that goes along with the theft. if you drove her to the store with the knowledge that she was going to rob said store, you are guilty of some crime. with out any supporting details tho its very hard to say anything. either way it seems like you plead and went through court with out a lawyer.

Drug test for expungement?

So long story short, a few years ago (3 to be exact) I was arrested for possession of some molly. Fortunately they never followed up on my case so I technically never got convicted of anything. I didn't even have to step in court a single time for an arraignment or anything. My lawyer says that at this point it's safe to say I'm in the clear and that we should begin the expungement process relatively soon to get rid of my arrest record.

So the question is: Will I have to take a drug test during the expungement process since my arrest was drug related?

as well as asking your lawyer, your county clerk of court website will have all of the basic information on the expungement process as well as required documents, probably printable, to begin the process. mostly it's a few more fees to pay and lots and lots of paperwork. i am still undergoing the expungement application of some drug related charges, but it is after i successfully completed a pti program that involved drug tests, but no mention has been made of a one last final drug test for the sake of the expungement.

Not likely in any way, it is irrelevant. Your court clerk is general you friend.

Expenses, you should be able to do this on your own. I would call it $120 tops to do this.

Ok there is NCIC criminal database, a cop could see this. If it it there you best intests would get this removed. However, .gov agencies can see this, even though you made the motiobs to delete the mishap. Employers would not see this, however, .gov jobs can see this. In your best interests you can do this, if one suspects a nark,, you could reveal the identity.

See, as if this did not go through, possibly you have no record.

Expungement laws are very, very State-specific. You'd have to talk to someone familiar with expungements in your State.
In most jurisdictions, you need to have a certain disposition in order to expunge. It's not really clear what happened in your case. Were you actually charged or just arrested? If you were charged and you never went to court, what happened in court? You said you didn't appear in court, but did an attorney appear on your behalf? If not, there may not be a final disposition in your matter. That means it's unlikely you'll be able to expunge anything. You may even have a bench warrant if you didn't show up to court.

I have never heard of anyone anywhere having to take a drug test in order to expunge your record. You're usually just entitled to an expungement as a matter of law. Sometimes, if you're not entitled, you may petition the court to consider expunging it anyway.

For prostitution? Probably, but if you make it unambiguously clear from the outset that inappropriate touching is not allowed I think you would be fine. It's very likely that there are other laws you could run afoul of though such as business license requirements, massage ordinances, things like that. Millions of people operate illegal businesses every day without incident and only get busted when someone complains to the right person so asking yourself what are people going to see and who is going to care is the pragmatic way forward.

2 Years ago our apartments explicitly allowed window unit air conditioners, and installed it for us. Out of nowhere (though in May, the cusp of summer transitioning) they've turned the tables and banned window units. It is now required to be the portable variety of ac unit if at all.

Is there anyway they can at least

or
2.)Leave them in charge of selling the ac unit. etc. My roommates dont have time to jive with strange craigslist people

Depends on your state. Most states they have to give notice of rule changes. You could always argue you need it for health reasons and the portable ones that would be safe for you ( large intake , exhaust vents ) are exorbitant. And the ada requires they make reasonable accommodation for you. That usually makes them behave.

So, I was released on parole in October. Part of my conditions of parole was wearing an ankle bracelet GPS monitor for one year. I have to keep it charged regularly, and I also have a curfew from 12 AM to 6 AM.

Anyways, I was issued a new bracelet about a month and a half ago. This one seems to be having trouble holding a charge. I went and saw my PO last Tuesday (I have to see him every week) and he made me stay for 3 hours in his office because I let my charge get "low" (it was at 66%) as 'punishment'. He then threatened to take me to jail if it ever happened again.

Well, I charged my bracelet for 1 hour last night, and one hour today around 12:00 PM. I left to run some errands for 3 hours and when I come back, the monitoring facility had called and said that my bracelet was low. Now, these things are only supposed to be charged for 2 hours in 24 hours maximum. So obviously, something is wrong.

What I'm wondering is, do you think I will go to jail this Tuesday? I have reported every single week, on time, since October. I have never failed a drug test. And, I always pay my fees on time. I have no outstanding crimes and I have not been arrested since I was put on parole. I also have had steady employment and/or been enrolled in school. Do you guys know just how far his power is, legally, considering that I am otherwise a perfect parolee? I would like to think that I can't be violated completely since I have committed no crimes, but I want to know.

For the worse case scenario, I have informed my lawyer as well as a few upstanding people in my community in case this guy tries to be on some complete bullshit. He lets the black guys get away with breaking curfew, coming up hot on drug tests, and other stupid shit, but he's always bitching at the very few white guys in our group because of completely inane shit.

Thanks in advance.

You, LITERALLY, cannot talk like a civilized human being with the POs in this county. They are some of the rudest, power-tripping assholes I have ever met. If my PO could act like a sensible, logical person without dehumanizing me every other word, then I'd simply call him and let him know the issue. I'm still going to, tomorrow morning, but it will be futile.

My dad's girlfriend has a terminal brain tumor. She went in to get some blood work done the other day, and they tested her without consent for the DEVIL'S LETTUCE. After it came back positive, she was harassed to the point of breaking down and crying by some Indian doctor who asserted that she is taking illegal medication for her cancer (she's also on some drugs that are believed to cure cancer, and are thus banned in most of the USA). The doctor called back the next day and apologized, presumably for being a brainwashed shill that would rather her pop benzos and opiates instead of vaping weed (no secret that pharma money rules medicine)

It's very likely that she gave blanket consent for the doctor to do harmless things that he thinks might be medically justified, basically permission to do his job. If she complained of things that could be the side effect of recreational drug use or self-medication then he wouldn't necessarily be expected to tell her that a drug panel would be included as part of the blood test. Now where she could sue the shit out of him is if the results of that drug test were ever disclosed.

Actually probably not. HIPAA does not contain a private right of action. The doctor can held over the coals by HHS, but you're not seeing a dime of it. There have been some examples lately of negligence cases or IIED cases actually working, but they are the exception, not the rule. In this case, with what the disclosures would be I don't see a colorable civil claim.

HHS-OCR would love to take the doctor's money though if there is a disclosure.

Doubtful, there's a reason they have you sign a shit ton of paperwork before they start treating you for shit, it gives them the right to do their job without getting a signature for every individual thing. Did she retain a copy or even read the forms before signing?
>constitutional right against unwarranted searches
Lol wut? Is she being treated for cancer by a police officer? That would probably be inadvisable.

Hello. I'm 32 and I have interest in becoming a lawyer, or at least some professional in that field.

My reasons for why? Right now, I'm suspecting that my father is selling family possessions and property that me and my siblings would otherwise inherit to support solely himself, and has given almost all of my dead mother's possessions away to a girlfriend who moved in with him after only knowing him for four months. She even sold her house.

He promised my mother that he'd never remarry, and he all of this and now he is going to.

While I know that not a lot can be done in my own personal case, I still have gained a sense of selfless duty for humanity (one that I would otherwise never have) and I want to make to make sure that it much, much harder for surviving parents to cannibalize the family and the resources of the children just so that they can be solely secure and content.

I know that it can't be perfect, but I can at least improve the lot for some people. I do not want anyone to go through what I went through, ever. Even if I'm wrong about what my father might do, I still want to make sure that it can't happen to others. I've already experienced enough as is.

So, is it worth being a lawyer these days? Do I need to be a lawyer for what I want to do? I do have the interest and the selfless motivation.

Well, having my mother's car, computers, and anything else of value that she had being just given to the girlfriend is suspicious, if not downright shallow. I told my friends and my therapist about the car thing, and they all thought it was a bit strange and heartless of my father.

Also the fact that all of my mother's pictures have been taken down, and anything else that wasn't of value has "disappeared" and likely thrown away; I actually have a book that I recused from the recycling bin of my town that has my mother's handwriting in it, and I know that it is her book because both her and my father talked about it (he actually showed me the book after the death, when he was still lonely).

There is also the share of the family cabin that my grandfather built that my father sold for no reason, and didn't talk to us about it. Not to mention that I think that he is selling a plot that was inherited to him that belongs to a family farm, established in the 1870s.

It has nothing to do with me. I don't want most of that shit. My siblings could use that, though. My father was a general surgeon, and look at his three kids: I'm on SSI, my brother is working in some factory and isn't even salaried, and while my sister is relatively well off, she entirely depends on her fiance (who she isn't married to, even after seven years) for financial support due to his risky entrepreneurship.

He told a year ago, out of the blue, with perfect calmness, that he didn't feel bad about whatever I accuse him of, because despite what mistakes he made, he did what was best. I talk to people about what my father did, and at first they support him, but when I tell them that part, they no longer do.

I am not entitled. I just want it so that when one parent dies, the surviving parent does not just take everything and then give it to some stranger he never even knew existed before the death, and squander most of the rest on himself.

He wants to take a whole trip by sailboat down the coast of Mexico with his girlfriend. He bought a used sailboat, takes monthly trips to the boat by car (we both in Idaho, so it is a long way), and is fixing up the boat. Not only is that extremely expensive, but it is fucking stupid. There is at least a 50% chance that they are both going to die on that trip, because it is so fucking unsafe. And where is he getting that money?

I do not really want his wealth. I just want my mother's stuff, and to keep family possessions in the family. And if not, what of it? He is not entitled for me to make sacrifices for him and to be left with nothing when it could be otherwise, like I'm his parent, and he's just a little baby. It is sick.

I could go on about how I slaved away from him for free, or how he wanted to take my money away from me when I was working myself to the bone and he was barely working at all at a cushy job not even two weeks after my mother died, or how he medically neglected me and my siblings when we were sick even though he was a doctor, and didn't take us to the hospital like any sane parent in order to "save money", but I won't. I didn't expect you to know that, but don't ever say those things again to either me or anyone else in my position. You don't have a clue how traumatic it is, for you've never been in my situation.

I don't actually see why you want to be a lawyer. If all you're bringing to the table is a sense of wanting to help people you're going to have a rough time.

Something should be done.

Im going to try to make this short and simple, im desperate to know if anything can be done for him and his situation.
Most recently my boyfriend was attempting to come to America from Australia to visit for holiday. He had sorted out his passport, ticket, and had all the documents he needed to enter America... From SYD he had one connecting flight to LAX, then was suppost to board a plane to his destination, NC. Upon arriving to LAX everything was going smoothly until he had to go through customs and deal with Homeland Security... He has epilepsy, whilst going through he began to have a seizure. He hadn't had a fit in a very long time, I suppose he may have been nervous and very excited to finally be in the US to meet me. Anyway, he was attacked by 12 homeland security officers while he was having his fit. They shoved him against a wall injuring his jaw. They were shouting at him while they were almost breaking his arms behind his back. They kept saying he was resisting when he obviously can't help what he does when he seizes. They took him into an interview room where he finally came to after blacking out. They questioned him and treated him like a terrorist. His bags were searched, of course they found nothing. He provided his medical documents to prove he's epileptic, but they didn't seem to care. The paramedics arrived 2 hours after the fact, he didn't need them at this point. He sat in cuffs for 3 hours before he was informed that he was being deported back to Australia on the next available flight. We later found out that they had prematurely canceled his ticket to NC before even interviewing him and finding out what was going on. Plus, they also voided his passport to be able to come to America for no reason. I feel they didn't want to admit that they were in the wrong and they were on some sort of power trip.
He remained in the interview room for more than 10 hours. No food or water was offered, his phone was taken but was aloud one phone call. He called me to tell me the news, we were both very heartbroken. We want justice. But unfortunately I've been told that there probably isn't anything that can be done. Help?

You should have your boyfriend call constitutional tort litigators in the Los Angeles area (I'm sure there are plenty of them) to see if there is potentially what's known as a Bivens claim.

I can't tell you if you have one because it's very fact specific and Bivens is complicated, but it's worth a consult.

sounds like they just wanted to intimidate him. Did he do anything that would piss off the feds?

Is it legal to destroy someone's brain on the basis of being too smart?

I have to know because even with the best lawyer in the world it's still legal for them to do so. They're trying to reprogram me and forewarning, in the U.S. it might be legal to rewrite people's brains if things don't happen soon.

This was done many decades ago, it was called lobotomy. Not all victims of involuntary lobotomy were mentally ill, some were set up. Knowing too much information, whistle blowing, merely being an inconvenience. Husbands who wanted mild wives instead of strong women. Intelligence.

Yep. Lobotomies went out of fashion quickly in the 50s, but not because of some radical shift in moral conduct. Forced sterilization continued along very similar lines in some US states until the 70s and within the last decade over a hundred women in California prisons were sterilized without their consent.
