  • Re: Thanks To All For Many Years of Great Info

    Just wanted to move this to the top again to make sure that everybody has seen it. I joined this forum more than 16 years ago, have contributed some (more when I was actually working as a Legal Secretary) and have learned an enormous amount. Thanks to all for your many years of service in educating the public. You know who you are.

  • Thanks To All For Many Years of Great Info

    I'm sorry to see that these forums will be shutting down, but not surprised. Just wanted to say thank you to all -- lawyers and non-lawyers -- for many years worth of valuable info. Those who've devoted so much time and effort to answering people's legal questions on these forums over the years -- I wish you all the very best, and only hope

  • Re: Bankruptcy the right decision now?

    Are you sure you have an ownership interest in your parents' home (if they have it in a trust which you will someday inherit, that is not an ownership interest, for example). If you do actually have an ownership interest in your parents' home, and have unpaid debts that you cannot pay, the home may already be at risk (depending on your state

  • Re: Conference Registration Fee Waived for Speakers

    Thank you. This is helpful. Just to play Devil's Advocate here -- why is this considered personal income to me personally rather than a benefit to my employer (who otherwise would have paid the conference fee if it were not waived)? As a matter of fact, if it truly is personal (bartered) income to me personally, then I am probably violating State

  • Conference Registration Fee Waived for Speakers

    I was invited to give a presentation at a professional conference, which is a real honor so far as I am concerned. My presentation would be about lessons learned from managing a particularly complicated and high profile situation that occurred in the course of my employment. I got sign-off from my boss. Then I had to confer with our Legal Counsel because

  • Re: Can They Really Do This?

    Thanks, all. For the cost of a consultation with an attorney who specializes in this area of law I could probably get another cell phone & cell phone account for the better part of a year. I am probably going to do that, just because I don't want my government employer digging through all my private communications with my friends and family

  • Can They Really Do This?

    There was a news story this morning about a top ranking Federal official who called his staff into a meeting to discuss news leaks. According to the news report, whose accuracy I do not know, but have no reason to disbelieve at the moment, before entering the meeting all staff members were required to turn over their cell phones, both government issued

  • "Shipping" alcohol

    I have a friend (over 21) who is getting married in Oklahoma. I am unable to attend the wedding but I'd like to send a very special bottle of distilled spirits as a wedding gift (it has particular sentimental value as well as fine taste). From what I can see, it would be a felony for me to ship a bottle of alcohol to Oklahoma. So my question is

  • Re: Ugh, Taxes!

    Okay, thanks for the info. I am going to have to get together with HR & find out what I need to do so they don't get taxed. The reason I got a bunch of complaints all at once is that apparently the payroll computer program sticks an item on the last paycheck of the year that is the total amount of meals, etc. that it is going to report as income

  • Ugh, Taxes!

    I am responsible for planning and conducting meetings for state employees from all over my state. I kind of have a standard way I've done this for years: When attendees are coming from distances > 100 miles (which happens fairly often) I try to plan the meeting from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and have lunch delivered (usually sandwiches or pizza) so
