Decatur, TX asked in Criminal Law, Civil Litigation and Small Claims for Texas

Q: Is it criminal if my brother threw away my daughters, my girlfriend's son, and my baseball gloves?

I was driving my father's vehicle and went with my girlfriend and her son and my daughter to play baseball, and we all left our gloves and a few other items in the vehicle when done. My younger brother borrowed the vehicle afterwards, and he and I have a problem getting along due to his irrational opinion. He has decided to throw away everything left in the vehicle while in his possession, and has since told me that he considered it all to be trash. I could care less how he feels and my daughter and girlfriend's son should have the stuff that belongs to them as well as I should too. These are not just cheap baseball gloves, the young boys glove retails for over $400, and my daughters glove was the cheapest and retails for over $260.

A: Replacing a few ball gloves likely only costs a couple hundred dollars. An hour-long consultation with a lawyer costs that.

I can’t think of any reasonably viable solution that would cost less.
