Cinnaminson, NJ asked in Libel & Slander for New Jersey

Q: I am 17. I scheduled a motorcycle lesson than canceled. The owner is threatening to sue me for my negative review.

I scheduled a appointment with a company to learn how to ride a motorcycle. After unforeseen circumstances I asked if I could get a refund, he said no but you can reschedule. For months I was busy and unable to schedule a time that worked. He had said that he only give refunds if you are injured. Playing basketball a few weeks back I got injured and received a doctors not. After sending it his still refused to give me a refund. So I left a negative review claiming he scammed me, because he told me if I was injured he would refund me. Now he is threatening to sue me. I’m only 17 so when someone brings up a lawsuit it’s scary. But he also is holding a few hundred bucks which is a lot of money for me.

A: Unless your parents have the funds to retain counsel for you, then you will not be able to have representation. This so-called no refunds policy is not binding and you are not old enough to sign a legally valid contract. You need to involve your parents in this. Good luck.
