I don’t see any area of the law listed that may be appropriate for this problem. Dept. of SD Co. Animal Services requires keeping a found animal for 4 days before letting it be adopted. Is this a rule or a law? I rescued a cat that lived in a parking lot in my mobile home park and is fed by residents in the park. There are people in one home who do absolutely nothing for him but say he is their cat. After months of feeding the cat at night and realizing he is ill and getting older and worried how long he will outrun all the cars, seeing him left out in the bad storms we had for a week was too much for me to bear. I asked one of those people to please take him in during the storm & was assured after asking a half dozen times that he would be cared for. However, I went back during the storm & found the cat soaken wet outside. I took him to vet hospital and was told he had medical problems, and he will need special vet food and meds and care. These people won’t listen and are threatening me. I told them if he goes back to that environment that he will eventually die a bad death. I’ve tried talking sense to them but they won’t listen. They are well known throughout the park as causing trouble and the Police visit their home frequently. The cat is on antibiotics and other meds plus had sub-fluids administered because of dehyration. Would break my heart to place him in their hands. Is there any law that can protect him? I just can’t put him thru going to the shelter even for few days and also those dreadful people might get him. I just wish I knew if there was any law on my side and the cat’s. The threats and trying to care for the cat are wearing me out.
Do I Need Both Parents Consent to their Child’s Settlement
Hello, I am an attorney and obtained a small settlement for a minor and her parent from a personal injury claim. The minor’s parents are divorced but share joint legal custody. Both parents are estranged and do NOT have a good relationship w/ eachother. The other parent is unaware of the claim. Before sending the settlement release form the insurance company wants to know if my client is the sole legal guardian of the minor, if not then both parents signature would be needed. Is there a way around this as my client does not want to inform the the other parent as the other parent will likely make things difficult? I do not want to make a misrepresentation. What if I tell the adjuster about the animosity b/w the two and how involving the other parent would impede settlement, and that my client would sign a hold harmless agreement should the other make a claim in the future (very unlikely). Is there a way to keep the other party out of this and not jeopardize my license?

Expressed numerous times to administrative staff that assistance was needed to achieve quality healthcare deliverence to nursing home residents, was told ”bottom line” was priority. Poor decisions made to achieve financial improvement with negative outcome occurring to patient care.

If I pay 2 guys to cut down some trees for me am I liable if an accident occurs and they are hurt? If they sign an indemnity agreement am I covered?
Public School Indemnity
My 6 year old child broke her arm at school while playing on the playground. She was in a lot of pain and very upset. Instead of calling 911 for an ambulance to transport her to the hospital, they allowed her to sit in the nurse’s office for 3 hours before I received a phone call about the incident. I immediately took off work and picked her up from school and took her to the hospital where we found out she had a broken arm. The school states that they are not allowed to call and arrange medical transportation even in an emergency without getting the parent’s permission first to see what they would like to do. I have talked to a few attorney’s about filing a lawsuit against the school for their negligence. So, far all the attorneys I have spoken to are telling me that I can’t sue the school because the have governed immunity. Are Public schools in Texas immune from being sued?
