We have a pitbull and luckily they haven't been outside together, but we have watched our neighbor's dog jump into our fenced-in yard multiple times. What can we do (legally) other than ask the neighbor to watch their dogs?
As the owner of pit bull, you are a vulnerable target for a lawsuit if something bad happens. You should consider whether the fence should be taller. You might also advise the neighbor of your concern. Perhaps the neighbor might want to install a taller fence. Check with your homeowner...Read more »
That depends on whether you have an employment contract and whether that employment contract gives them the ability to search your car if it's on their property. It seems unlikely, however. You should call an employment attorney.

It’s a vehicle owned by a married couple and due to lack of communication they both did not agree to sell and are going to send back the small deposit and compensate buyer for their time as well. Can the buyer sue? The vehicle is under $10,000. Thank you.
Your question is unclear. If you cashed a bad check in 2015, it may be too late for law enforcement to do anything about it. But that does not mean a collection agency cannot try to collect on behalf of whoever lost the money.
I sold a guy a motorcycle with just a bill of sale, title came in the mail days after the sale was made. He's threatening to take me to court because he has received the title I mailed him because he started to get hostile with me.
Anybody can sue by paying the court filing fee. But there are no monetary damages for an "almost wreck." If you can get another mechanic to testify that the work had been done improperly, you might be able to collect the $1500 in small claims court.

after I did so. He did not come and get them until after I bagged them two days later. He is suing me for $3000 for destruction of property. Can he win this suite when I clearly told him they were outside and to come and get them?
He could win the suit yes, but the phrase you’re looking for is “failure to mitigate damages.” That means if you could easily have done something to reduce the amount of harm caused by someone’s wrongful actions and decided not to, you get less.
