Meridian, ID asked in Small Claims for Idaho

Q: Can someone sue for property not returned if it then is returned?

A previous employer mailed me a printer and requested it back after I left their company. I have no vehicle and had no means to bring it down. I lost contact with them and just got into my email to find a threat to sue that has passed. I arranged a way to return the property and just want this mess behind me. Can they still come after me after it is returned tomorrow?

A: An Idaho attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. No one here could predict what they would do. It's good that you made arrangements to return the printer. If you haven't already, let them know about the arrangements you made so they don't move forward with formal legal action. Without knowing more facts, it isn't usually worth a company's time to sue for a $100 or $200 printer as a practical matter, but act without delay to avoid unnecessary legal action. Good luck
