Yes, there is a time limit to file a lawsuit. The exact time limit will depend on what causes of action you state (e.g., which consumer protection laws you invoke). It would be rare for the time limit to be less than a year, but acting sooner is always better.
Your question is cut off, but it seems like you are probably asking whether there could be criminal penalties for keeping a lost item that you purchased. The answer is, it depends. The most important factor may be whether you knew at the time you purchased the item that it belonged to someone other...View More

A couple months later, I received a letter from my bank stating that since they didn't receive documentation of insurance on my truck, that... View More
A Michigan attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. It isn't fully clear what caused the misunderstanding here - a local attorney could probably sort out better after reviewing the file in detail. But a financial institution can require insurance. Good luck
Hello everyone. I worked at and purchased a solar panel system from a solar installer in Michigan. There is a panel that is not functioning and I have had no help from the installation company for literally 87days. The battery was to be installed in 2022 when available. The battery is still not...

You will need to sue the solar installer for breach of contract. In most instances, the finance company is not responsible for the solar system not working. All it did was provide money pursuant to a loan. The company that sold you the system, and the manufacturer of the system, are legally...View More

You may consider reaching out to an attorney who focuses on consumer rights or consumer protection law to handle this matter.

If the "repair place" performed repairs that were not authorized by you, I suggest you file a complaint with the State of Michigan Attorney General. Michigan will investigate your complaint and contact the repair place.
You can be sued for anything, really. But based on your summary I wouldn't worry about getting sued. The plaintiff in any lawsuit is required to prove damages. I doubt this LLC has been harmed by what you've done, as explained. (I probably wouldn't have admitted to forwarding these...View More
He has several student debt loans. He has never defaulted, but I believe has an IBR or IDR plan in place. Can something be done while he is incarcerated where the collection or reapplying for the IBR or IDR every year stops? Can the
I do not believe there are provisions exclusive to incarcerated individuals. I think he'll need to contact his student loan servicing agency, or have someone do it on his behalf through a power of attorney form. I would think it's a matter of certifying each year that he has no income...View More

Probably not illegal or unlawful, but certainly not good social graces. The question for you, though, is why care if someone else bothers to look as long as they're not doing so to steal your information.
The bankruptcy discharge prohibits a creditor from demanding payment of a discharged debt. However, it does not require a prospective lender to lend to you. Therefore, it is illegal for the creditor holding a discharged debt to try to enforce it against you, but legal for a bank to deny you a...View More
