Thank you for the questions. I can't be certain unless I have read the contract. Did you read it in detail? Are there parts that you do not understand?
When you look closely at what they did charge you sure that the downpayment was not included?
People will ask me "How... Read more »
I am 22 years old now and financially independent from my parents. I have great credit and no debts. I went to make an appointment with an orthodontist, but they said the Dr may not accept me as a patient because my parents never paid off the braces I had when I was 12. I didn't finish...

An orthodontist (or any professional) can refuse to see you for any reason, other than one based on discrimination against a member of a legally protected class. For example, he can't refuse to see you because you are black or white, Buddhist or Baptist, married or single, and so on, because... Read more »

Well, it appears that the mechanic did not do his job correctly. If the mechanic cannot fix the problem or reimburse you for your expenses, I would suggest litigating this matter in Small Claims Court. If the mechanic is unresponsive, you can let him know that you plan to file a case in Small... Read more »

Maybe. Before you go down that road, your best advice may be to have the car towed to the dealer before anything else is done. The dealer can tell you whether the heater core was properly installed and they should be able to explain how it would be possible to damage the computer while performing... Read more »
I got a 3k check from my car insurance, repair shop was supposed to charge me it plus $500 deductible from my end. They only charged me $500 total and are just now asking for the check.
I live near Chicago, Illinois . Thanks lol
answered on Feb 3, 2022
Well, its your lucky day. The amount of check from the insurance was based upon an estimate of damage provided to them by their adjuster or an outside body shop. The fact that the body shop charged you less in the end should not change the amount of the check from the insurance. If the check is... Read more »
A friend group I had came up with an idea of a motor that can run itself. We would be able to run things off of said idea and it would be borderline free energy. With people having ideas for a hundred years, I doubt that someone has came up with this exact idea. If we were to move forward and... Read more »

Your question in a general sense is does it matter whether or not you have seen a patent for an idea before you start selling a product covered by that patent.
The answer is that you are liable for patent infringement to the owner of the earlier, unexpired patent whether or not you had... Read more »

Your inability to pay does not stop the entry of judgment. If there is already a judgment and you are up on a post judgment citation or garnishment, you should read and be aware of the exemption provisions of the post judgment code of civil procedure. Specifically, 735 ILCS5/2-1402 states at (b)(1)... Read more »

In all probability the lender had a perfected security interest in the settlement. While any personal liability on your part was discharged, the lien would survive the discharge unless you successfully moved to avoid it. The basis for such avoidance would normally be that the lien somehow... Read more »

Even generally, in order to assess your particular legal situation involving a certain judge you must discuss all facts and details directly with a LICENSED attorney in the jurisdiction where you think the action took place.

It would depend on the cause and amount of the suit. If you plan to sue them for under $10,000 you should consider suing them yourself in small claims court.

An Illinois attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. There's no guarantee all posts are picked up, but you could try reposting under Landlord-Tenant for better chances of a response. Good luck
