Q: My husband helped someone move and now they are saying he broke something. Do we have to pay? He says he didn't break it
He helped a neighbor move to be nice. She said he broke the ac, which is 6+years old. Both said it was working when he left. She said it worked until she unplugged it. She's threatening a lawsuit.
A: He doesn't HAVE to pay anything until a Court orders him to. If the A/C is really that old, it's probably not worth much and I find it unlikely that someone would file a lawsuit (and pay a filing fee) for such a small amount. Even if they did file a lawsuit, they'd need to prove negligence or some other reason your husband is liable for the cost of the A/C.
