Contract actions usually exclude consequential damages. Tort claims might include such damages. No

small claims court in TN. General Sessions Court might allow it, but it sounds like a breach of contract action, so no.

A Tennessee attorney should advise, but your question remains open for four weeks. But as a general matter, most places impose a requirement of registration and insurance to leave the lot - it might be temporary, but it's a registration nonetheless. Good luck

That sounds like a potential breach of contract action on each refund. Possible class action. But it sounds like you have no evidence. Consult with an attorney. But be advised it may not be a TN jurisdictional matter.

It sounds like you are being sued on the Note you signed. An attorney can sue the other party for contribution, but collection is another matter. Bankruptcy or a Settlement may be options. If a Judgment goes down, protect your assets and file a Notice of Exempt Property.

That would probably be a conversion cause of action against the dealer. There may be criminal liability, but you would have to make the allegation to the police and you would need information about who to accuse. Hire a competent attorney now and file suit.

Depending on the value of the jack, it could be a misdemeanor or a felony charge for Theft Of Property. Hire a competent attorney to represent you. Restitution may need to be made despite the recovery. You want to get it Diverted, Dismissed and Expunged. Otherwise it will affect you for life.
