OTHERS CIVIL MATTER

Usually, a civil case involves conflicts between people or business institutions. If you were harmed by the action of another person or institution you may be entitled to damages (money compensation). However, when money damage cannot be measured, or would not make you whole, equitable remedies would be available. Equitable remedies may be available as follows:

Specific Performance: if there is a valid contract to sell a unique item, an item of great sentimental value, or a real state, under those scenarios, the court, by its discretion, may enter an order to the promisor that he undertake the performance for which he obligated himself in a contract.

Injunction: If you are looking to require or prevent someone from doing something, you may need an injunction as equitable remedy. Usually, an injunction may be seeking to refrain a former employee to compete when he and the employer have entered into a non-compete contract. Be aware, however, that the injunction equitable remedy may also be sought under the Nuisance doctrine when other unreasonable and substantially interferes in your right to the use and enjoyment of your own property or the property you are in possession. Injunction is also available in cases of first refusal where the seller promises to give to the buyer the right to be the first one to buy the property when the seller decides to sell it. The Right of first refusal is available when there the parties agreed with the First Refusal clause in a valid contract of a parcel of real estate or a unique work of art, but the seller, in breach of a written promise, offers the thing to a third party. In that case, the court may issue an Injunction Order enjoining the seller from selling the property to the third party.

Restitution: Restitution is a remedy applicable to several different types of cases: those in which the contract was avoided because of incapacity or misrepresentation, those in which the other party breached, and those in which the party seeking restitution breached. Restitution is also available upon repudiation of an oral contract governed by the Statute of Frauds, the non-breaching party is not entitled to her expectation interest, but she may recover in restitution unless the purpose of the statute would be frustrated. When one party avoids a contract owing to lack of capacity, mistake, misrepresentation, duress, or the like, she is entitled to restitution for benefit conferred on the other party. Or if a contract duty is discharged or never arises because (1) performance was impracticable, (2) the purpose of the contract was frustrated, (3) a condition did not occur, or (4) a beneficiary disclaimed his benefit. However, restitution is awarded only to the extension of the benefit conferred from the injured party to the non-injured party. Basically, it is a remedy designed to protect parties against unjustly enriched.

Declaratory judgment: If looking to have your rights determined under a contract or statute even before starting to litigate with the opposing party, you may seek a declaratory judgment.

If you are facing any of those issues, Molinari Law Firm, L.L.C. would be happy to stand by your side to represent your best interest under the law.

 


 

EXPUNGEMENT AND SEALING

Nobody is perfect, so if you made a bad decision in the past, or did one of those mistakes that youths usually make, and it is there seated on your criminal record, making the dreamed job, unobtainable, you should look for legal advice regarding the possibility to expunge or seal your criminal record. Under Illinois law with a sealed or expunged record, you can honestly tell others, including prospective employers, that you do not have a criminal record. However, having a criminal record expunged and having it sealed are not the same thing. When an arrest is expunged from an individual’s criminal record, it is erased from the record. A sealed record, on the other hand, still exists, but it can only be accessed by law enforcement, the court, and selected employers. Sealed records may only be accessed through a court order. In Illinois, an arrest that did not result in a conviction may be expunged from an individual’s record. If the arrest did result in a conviction, the record may be sealed, depending on the nature of the conviction. There are a few exceptions to this rule, however. If an individual’s conviction is reversed, he or she may have it expunged from his or her record. An individual who is pardoned by the governor may also expunge his or her conviction. Most types of arrests may be expunged from an individual’s record if it did not result in his or her conviction. Certain arrests and charges cannot be expunged, regardless of whether the individual was convicted. These include:

  • Driving under the influence (DUI);
  • and Sexual offenses involving minors.

Records of many types of conviction can be sealed, but not all. Convictions that cannot be sealed include:

  • Class 1, 2, and X felonies;
  • Animal offenses, such as dog fighting;
  • Domestic battery; and
  • Violation of an Order of Protection

If you are facing issues caused by one of those bad decisions of the past, let Molinari Law Firm, L.L.C. help you feel like you have a “blank slate” and a renewed reputation moving forward.
