Do movies thearters in New York need a licensed security guard to search bags? If not why is there a
In New York a person is required to have a security license to be a security guard. Duties include checking ID's, bag checks, etc. Movie theaters do not have security guards, but are allowed to check bags a their own discretion. My question is, do movie theaters in New York need a licensed security guard to check bags, or can the ticket usher search them? And, if a security guard is not needed then what's the point of having the license if any receptionist-type job will allow for checking bags, ID's, etc?
Do I have to pay a civil demand fee after caught shoplifting?
I was apprehended by Jcpenny lp's and questioned and stuff, but no cops came and they let me off and just gave me a paper and said I should expect a letter in the mail. If there is a fee can I refuse it legally without going to court. I am 18 and I cannot afford this fee nor a lawyer please help me.
is there any way to stop a wage garnishment after it has been sent to employer.
I had a judgemnet against me in 2009 for 3000.00 for an unpaid credit card. That acct was closed in about 2006. Nothing happened with the judgement. Then a few days ago, myemployer got garnishment papers for the original 3000.00 judgement plus 2700.00 more in interest. 5700.00. I was wondering since the debt was so there anything i can do about this?
Online contract with out of state doctor for elective reproductive procedure
I live in TN and in Feb I paid a dr in North Carolina almost $5000 for a tubal reversal (pd in full out of tax return) and scheduled for April 1st. Everything was done online, nothing physically signed by me or my husband. I even filled out ny new patient paperwork online. A couple of days before the procedure, I had an emergency prohibiting from going. I got a ticket for letting my car insurance lapse and and there was a mix up if I was to go to traffic court or general sessions. I went to traffic court and it was supp to be gen sessions. They took out a warrant for capias on me and Ive never been in any trouble before. So I had to turn myself in the day of my surgery. The drs office said they wont give a refund, and all I can do is reschedule but I have to pay $750 more to reschedule! They said its in the paperwork, but I never actually signed anything. How can they just keep someones $5,000 or tell them they have to pay $750 more to reschedule?!
