how come everytime paddy says something that is legal advice the thread always becomes some argument. its funny.
Because Paddy has a record of stating incorrect facts regarding the law.
For example, Paddy posted that the bills must be two-thirds or smaller. The law states less than three-fourths.
In all fairness, Paddy probably doesn't always have time, opportunity or desire to discuss the legal questions which arise here on Penguin with Mr. Bob Abernathy Esq. He is Paddy's attorney and works in entertainment law. As such, Paddy sometimes posts incorrect information.
That being said, I actually agree with the gist of Paddy's post. http://law.justia.com/us/cfr/title31/31-18.104.22.168.9.html

(helpful post #49 - although some might construe this as a little direct and unflattering, it still definately qualifies as helpful)This post does not create an attorney-client relationship with any reader. In other words, I’m not your lawyer. In fact, we don't know each other. If you need personalized legal advice, contact an attorney in your community. You shouldn't rely on my posts for your legal advice. And you definatley shouldn't rely on information posted by certain other members here on this forum.
