Here is a link to the show Law & Disorder if you didn’t get a chance to hear it.

  • In the upcoming 2020 Census, they are putting back the “Are you a U.S. citizen?” on the questionnaire. Many cities around the country have a huge problem with that and are threatening immediate legal action against the Census Bureau. This question was asked in the past, but they are proposing bringing it back. What are your thoughts?
  • By law you have to fill out the census and it has to be done honestly, but no of you personal information is allowed to be identified so the argument is kind of moot.
  • A person took a prescription from CVS. CVS called three times apologizing to the person to not take the medication. The person took it for 30 days and refilled it. Do they have a case?
  • That’s really bad and CVS is probably liable, but the person will have to prove they were actually harmed.
  • Is there a limit on negligence cases when it comes to doctors?
  • There is a 2 year statute of limitations on medical malpractice cases.
  • A person acquired Cryptococcosis in the lungs after working construction and mold remediation as maintenance in a senior living home. Does this person have a personal injury suit?
  • A business owner has a duty to protect there employees from known and easily discovered hazardous conditions.
  • Employment was terminated after a failed background check. The background check had inaccurate information, is there any recourse?
  • You can try to go after the company that provided the false data,  it your employer might be protected under Florida’s right to work laws.
  • The companies that do the background checks, do they do anything that goes above and beyond that anyone of us can access on the internet?
  • The might be able to access information easier and in bulk.
  • A person was knocked out at work, while cleaning the 2nd floor of a double decker bus. Anything this person can do?
  • This sounds like an issue that might be covered under worker’s compensation and possibly disability.
  • What are the steps for a person that has been convicted of a felony to obtain their gun rights back?

It’s a lot which we covered in last weeks blog but can easily be googled under the Florida statues. It’s under the clemency rules.
