Substituted service performed one day before statute of limitations expired - mailed packet was postmarked the day of statute of limitations, received in mail 7 days after. Can I contact them directly to settle or should I bank on passing of statue of limitations? Thanks :)
You have asked a very good question. The statute of limitations is concerned only with the date that the complaint was filed. The date of service has nothing to do with the timeliness of the lawsuit filing. Thus serving you after the statute has run does not provide any basis to knock out the...Read more »
I recently took a flight on Southwest and ended up catching covid. They have mask policy’s which everyone followed but in the past, the middle seat in the aircraft was always empty. I couldn’t imagine the crew doing a sterilization job in the time they pulled in and we boarded. After getting... Read more »
In a lawsuit I think you will need to prove 1. that you contradicted your illness on that flight and 2. That you got it from the person sitting next to you and 3. That the airline failed to follow rules established by the government. Other issues are likely to be the vaccination status of you and...Read more »
I looked at the information in the link you sent. Thank you for responding.
First, I searched for "diminished", then for "only" in order to locate anything that states that property is only the physical article that was damaged and nothing else that is commonly also... Read more »

I left California due to a bad relationship. I foolishly walked away from all responsibilities as I was extremely stressed and left 30k of outstanding debt. Car loans, cc, etc. Prior to this my credit was perfect! It was the biggest mistake of my life!!
You certainly do have options. Talk to one or more bankruptcy lawyers to explore those options. If you are informed that bankruptcy is one of those options, you can probably make all the debt go away, even the lawsuits.
I placed an order from Zumies over the phone (kept getting error codes from site so called customer service), and after the order was placed, I received an email from my bank stating account was low. Went to check it and was charged $65.20 4 separate times. I called back right away and was told... Read more »
This person has paid about 40% of multiple other invoices over multiple years of off and on consulting from 2016-2019. His payments became less frequent and consistent. He repeatedly promises to pay then does not. This debt is under a contract and is now about two years old. I have attempted... Read more »
You need to decide, right now, if this justifies the expense of hiring a lawyer. Time is your enemy. The longer you wait you might lose the right to sue. Go see a lawyer or 2 and see what you will need to spend, and discuss whether a judgment in your favor will be collectable.
Firstly, the seller had a fictitious 2021 tag on a truck with expired registration-dating back to 2017! The DMV demanded $800 to register the vehicle I purchased about 45 days ago. I got involved in a very very light fender bender coming out of a park in an upscale residential neighborhood. I was... Read more »
Some herbs are toxic and labeled not for human consumption, however, I’ve discovered that clients are actually consuming them. I’ve labeled them as deadly toxic. The herbs in question are belladonna and sacred datura.
If she cannot legally provide or sell her services to another because she isn't properly bonded, then wouldn't any auctions she's held be illegal to do and void any contracts between her and the buyers of said illegal (fraudulent) auctions?
I bought a guitar from a pawn shop for $600. A few months later I was short on cash and pawned it at a different pawn shop who then notified me that it had been reported stolen. Now theres a hold on it and the $150 case that I bought at a different store. Am I out $750 now or is there anything I... Read more »
If you have proof of the guitar purchase, take it to the shop that reported it as stolen to see if they will help straighten things out with the police. If it won't, contact the shop you bought it from.
Hello. Two weeks ago I bought three custom hand fans online for an event, at a cost of over $100. When the fans arrived, all three fell apart quickly before the event, in each case the bolt holding the fans together fell off. I have sent the company photos and asked them for a refund, but they...

You can insist on anything you want, but that is only as good as your ability to enforce your demand. As President Lyndon Johnson used to say, "Don't ever tell a man to go to hell unless you can send him there."
You won't be taking someone to court over a $100 dispute,...Read more »
You should have an immediate conversation with one or more bankruptcy lawyers. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is designed to give you up to 5 years to catch up your mortgage, all the while protecting you from foreclosure.
With all due respect to you, why is this a "do it yourselfer" without a lawyer? If you can afford to plunk down a check for 10K, then spend another $2k and get her a top BK lawyer to handle this thing correctly. Other questions and issues almost always arise in a case. This is not the...Read more »
