Suit against Weinstein alleges breach of contract

Some Kansas residents may be aware that the film producer Harvey Weinstein is facing charges for rape and sexual misconduct among others after over 80 women reported that he sexually harassed or assaulted them. Now he is also the target of a breach of contract lawsuit from a former employee.

Deciding who pays student loan debt in a divorce

Since Kansas is an equitable property state, if residents get a divorce, the court will take several factors into account when deciding how to divide student loan debt. For example, if one person cosigned for the other spouse's student loan, then both people will probably be responsible for the debt. If one person came into the marriage with student loan debt, it will probably not be considered marital property, and that person will continue to be solely responsible for it.

HBO seeks to move Michael Jackson lawsuit to arbitration

Kansas residents who watched the recent HBO documentary 'Finding Neverland" are undoubtedly aware that it did not paint a very flattering picture of Michael Jackson. The deceased pop star's estate was not pleased when HBO announced that it planned to air the film and filed a lawsuit in February claiming that the network violated an agreement it signed with Jackson in 1992. The agreement allowed HBO to show footage of a Michael Jackson concert that took place in Bucharest if it agreed to not disparage the singer in the future.

Potential penalties for a drunk driving conviction

Those who are found driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol on a Kansas road may face many different penalties, ranging from a fine to time in jail. It is also possible that a driver who is convicted of impaired driving will be required to have an ignition interlock device installed on his or her vehicle. Such a device won't allow a car to start if it a driver has a blood alcohol level of .02 or higher.
