Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer This is not a civil rights issue. If it wasn't registered then the owner of the property has rights. You should have notified them about your car being on the property without an inspection sticker. If you can prove they knew it was your car and you were there legally you may have an argument, but some of these lots are patrolled by tow companies that look out for these types of cars and remove them.
Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer You could call your local police department, and the Attorney generals office and file a complaint, they could investigate the allegation and if the mechanic did in fact pass a car and give you an inspection sticker illegally, take away his ability to give them out, fine him, or even charge him with a crime of fraud. You then may have a lawsuit against the seller and the mechanic for conspiracy if in fact it can be proven. If charges are brought and anyone of these guys are found guilty,...
Joseph Kelly Levasseur's answer I looked over the rules and I don't see them in there either. You can file a motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim for which relief can be granted and state the same reasons you stated here. He might be using old rules that have been updated and no one ever called him on it. The plaintiff will probably then simply amend his complaint, which the court will most likely allow. Good Luck!
Israel Piedra's answer He doesn't HAVE to pay anything until a Court orders him to. If the A/C is really that old, it's probably not worth much and I find it unlikely that someone would file a lawsuit (and pay a filing fee) for such a small amount. Even if they did file a lawsuit, they'd need to prove negligence or some other reason your husband is liable for the cost of the A/C.
