You can certainly send an invoice, but unless you had an agreement for the payment of rent you are not going to be able to sue for breach of lease or contract. Research Missouri's abandoned property statute.
You didn't ask a legal question but I will assume you want to know your options. If you can prove that your employer was negligent then you could recover damages if there were a lawsuit.

I suggest that you have an attorney review your sale contract and seller's disclosure form, as well as any written demands from the buyers. You are liable if the buyers sue you and prove their claim or claims against you by a preponderence of the evidence. I have litigated...Read more »
I'm not sure if you are stating that you filed a motion and served the plaintiff with a copy or if you simply wrote a letter to the judge. If the latter, then no. If the former, then you'll have to argue your duly noticed motion and win. Hire an attorney if you can afford one.
By the time I drove it home the oil light came on and then the check engine light came on. It was a Cam position sensor code and there was no oil showing on the dipstick. Will I be able to cancel this contract since it's not me just changing my mind?

My employer refused to pay me any sort of wage for the first 1.5 months of my employment stating that he didnt have to since i was in "training" but i was normally here alone running everything. I work approximately 57 hours a week. I was allowed to keep only my tips.

Contact an attorney in the St. Louis area to discuss representation in going after your employer for...Read more »
My attorney has put my current legal case in jeopardy. I cannot find other representation nor do I have the money to start over.
