In a Judd Apatow comedy, you can always count on the lead character following the same story arc. Usually he’s a hard-partying, pot smoking schlep who meets a girl and messes it up due to commitment phobia. In the end, he gets his act together and gets the girl back. Happy ending.

President George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act into law July 26, 1990, and with its passage, discrimination against persons with disabilities was made criminal in hopes it would begin to diminish. Now, 25 years later, persons with disabilities, along with the rest of the nation, are celebrating the anniversary of that momentous occasion and a local fair is being held to raise awareness of ADA law.

Q. A credit card company sued me and has a judgment against me. Now it has garnished my bank account, and all the money in the account has been taken. I thought there was no garnishment in Texas?

A. With the exception of obligations for child support and student loans, Texas law prohibits wage garnishment. In other words, a creditor who sues for a credit card debt cannot garnish your wages through your employer. Creditors, however, can garnish a bank checking or savings account.
