We are a co-defendant in a garnishment. Plaintiff states that we are the co-defendant's employer. The defendant is a consultant (1099 employee) and we do not garnish wages for consultants. We want to get dismissed from this lawsuit without the need to hire an attorney.

You have indicated you are a co-defendant in a garnishment. I am not clear on what you mean. I will assume that you are not a defendant - but rather you received a garnishment in regard to party that had a judgment entered against them.
If that is the case, you need to respond to the... Read more »
My mom passed in October and didn’t leave a will. Me and my two older sisters, of course, inherit her house. The oldest has her own home and doesn’t want any ownership.

I am sorry for the loss of your mother.
I am assuming you are correct that you and your two sisters inherited the house. Based upon this the three sisters have an undivided 1/3 interest in the property. I understand you and a sister live in the house. The third sister owns an interest... Read more »

You could set up an entity to provide employees to both and then be reimbursed by both entities for the employees. Or the employees could be employed by one entity and when they work for the other - the other entity reimburses the first entity for the time of the employees.
It is my understanding that it is not enough for one party to prove he/she did not intend a binding contract but must prove that both parties agreed there was no binding contract between them. Is this correct in TN law?
answered on Jan 10, 2023
Both parties must agree to as to the formation of a contract - a unilateral "contract" generally would not be binding. But contracts can be formed by one party requesting an action and the other party performing and the performance is an acceptance- so your question's answer may be fact specific.

You don't indicate the agreement with this other person - and you likely should discuss this with a lawyer rather than creating another post. -... Read more »

What you are describing sounds terrible. You should likely contact the police to report this. Beyond this as to next steps with the business- will depend on your LLC governing documents. It will have procedures relating to the management, control and operation of the company.
I was delivering an order to my local college campus in TN and while trying to find the apartment number, in the middle of the walkway, I tripped.

I would suggest you take pictures of your injury as well as the location. If you are needing medical treatment - I would report this to the school and its insurer. They may provide / pay for your medical care. If you are considering a legal route-- you should contact an attorney.
I supposedly have a judgement against me over $100 even though I've never seen it. The law firm called my job and talked bad about me.

Whether your landlord can change the rate "mid-term" in the lease will depend on the language in the lease. If there is no provision allowing for this- then - no, the landlord shouldn't be able to change the rate during the term of the lease.

How far can I be excepted to travel for this and how often can they subpoena me for this? I have no assets so it seems as harassment once they are aware of that. I was sued 4 counties (>100 miles) away in Tennessee in Chancery court.

Without more details it is hard to answer. Look up motions for Protective Orders in Tennessee or you may need to hire a lawyer to file one for you. I am not sure whether you are entitled to relief- but that would be one avenue to approach.

I don't know that there really is a multiplier- and a multiplier range of between 1-5 is pretty broad. Damages should be unique to your case- and how your ankle injury impacts you.

I'm not sure what you mean by "testing the business and the market." if you are going to have a business you should consider forming an LLC or a corporation to try to insulate from liability.

The first car would be titled in your name or you would have paperwork where you bought the first car. The dealer cannot just "swap" the cars out without your permission.
