We have a contract with a builder, and have already paid 40% of the contract price. He now wants to cancel the contract, because it suits him to do so. He has not completed the project. Where do we stand?

Discuss this question

Question found in Building & Construction In General
If you have a contract (preferably written), both parties are obligated to fulfill their commitments.

If negotiation is not possible and he simply refuses to complete the job, you may have to file a lawsuit for relief. You are not obligated to accept his refusal to complete or the financial terms he is offering.

Comments :
Thanks. Sounds reasonable.

My civil suit was dismissed, do I have any other legal recourse to take against this person.

Thank You

Discuss this question

Question found in Legal Other
It will depend upon why and how it was dismissed.

If "dismissed with prejudice" or you meant the judgment was for the other party, you are prohibited from filing the same action again.

If dismissed for inadequate evidence, lack of standing or other reasons prior to the case being heard and you can correct those legal defects, you -may- be able to file again.

I would suggest a short conversation with an attorney who can make specific recommendations.

I live in a newly built house. The kitchen and bathroom plugs all have stickers on them that say GFI Protected but not all of them have reset buttons. In one of the bathrooms they have the stickers but there are no buttons on any of the outlets. How do the ones without buttons reset if there is a need?

Discuss this question

Question found in Home & Garden In General
Most likely one socket in the kitchen is GFCI (with reset and test buttons) and all power to the other sockets flows through it first (it is electrically between the other sockets and the circuit breaker panel).

You can test this by plugging a lamp or something into the other sockets and pressing the test button. If all sockets are protected, the test button should kill the power to those sockets as well as the socket with the buttons.

Depending upon how close the bathroom and kitchen are, the kitchen GFCI may be protecting the bathroom sockets as well. Use the lamp to test these sockets when pushing the test button on the kitchen socket.

Not as likely may be a GFCI circuit breaker for the bathroom. Look inside the breaker panel for a circuit breaker with GFCI buttons.

Comments :
I tested all the outlets according to the answer above. This was the answer! Everything worked exactly as explained. Thank-You so much!

How do doctors use MRI's today?

Discuss this question

Question found in Social science In General
MRI was formerly called NMRI, but the N was removed because many were offended or put off by the Nuclear reference. The test has not changed, only the name. It is still Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging, even though the name has changed.

MRI can detect "soft tissue" injuries/damage that do not show up on conventional X-rays.

It has a variety of special applications depending upon the reason. It can pinpoint tendon, ligament, brain and other compromises or problems that X-rays and other diagnostic techniques cannot.

MRI is painless, non-intrusive, non-invasive and relatively harmless (unlike excessive X-rays). Depending upon the vintage of the technique, it can be claustrophobic, noisy and confining. Newer machinery and techniques have improved this, however. Some are "standing MRI" or "open MRI". In these, the patient is not shoved into a coffin-like environment for testing and it is far more comfortable.

I have had an "old-style" MRI and fell asleep during the process. I am not bothered by confinement, noise or claustrophobia. Newer machines overcome all of these.

One sister is executrix of mother's will; the other is an alternate. Both went with mu mother to have will made. In the will, the executrix is exempt from 1) filing an inventory of the estate, 2) making any accounting to any court and 3) obtaining any order, decree or process form any court. Could this executrix be removed having given possible influence in writing of the will and can I, as heir, make her show an inventory of all assets of estate? there are five siblings that are to get an equal share of the estate.

Discuss this question

Question found in Legal Studies
In a word, yes.

If the items you describe are included in the Will, many probate courts will likely see undue influence and this Will could be successfully challenged by any/all potential heirs.

You need a good estate attorney to represent your interests and file the appropriate challenges, though. Removing an Executrix who has a vested interest and/or undue influence will not be difficult

While this appears to be a slam-dunk, there are specific legal procedures that must be observed. The expense of a good estate attorney will not be ill-spent.

How do I treat my sons soft tissue injury, it is on the outside of his foot just below the ankle?

Discuss this question

Question found in Health & Fitness In General
It will depend on the nature and extent of the injury.

If it is a sprain, cold compresses (insulated ice packs no more than 15 minutes at a time) may be helpful to reduce pain and swelling. Avoiding weight bearing and stress are crucial for at least six weeks.

If it is a muscle strain, warm packs will be more helpful. Avoid weight bearing and stress for at least three weeks.

Clipped, tied and burned tubes; pregnancy is still possible, but very unlikely.
