I believe that my rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and other relevant laws have been violated. The FCRA (15 USC 1681 section 602 a) establishes the need for consumer reporting agencies, such as Experian, TransUnion, and Equifax, to exercise their responsibilities with fairness,... Read more »

An Oklahoma attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Until you're able to consult with a local attorney on state-specific insurance and consumer law, one option could be to check with the state department of insurance.

Your veteran status has no bearing on anything. A motion to dismiss is inappropriate as a response to a motion for judgment. If you did not answer the allegations of the complaint, the plaintiff obtained a default. If you did, your answer may not have raised, in the eyes of the plaintiff, any... Read more »

If SOL expired before wage garnishment was issued is it legal to take my money?
answered on Sep 28, 2022
The statute of limitation to collect on a judgment is much longer than 5 years. The 5 year SOL applies to bringing the lawsuit. You have no statute of limitation defense.
I am curious if it is legal for ok. Stores to refuse cash on ordered goods when you pick them up when the business has nothing posted?
answered on Jun 22, 2022
In Oklahoma businesses can take any legal form of payment they desire. If they do not take cash, there are reasons they chose not to, such as a fear of theft, counterfeiting, germs transferred through money, etc... Posting is not required.

Possibly, if they have a cross collateral clause in your loan agreement with them on the separate loan. Most banks have cross collateral clauses in loan agreements that make it so all the collateral (the vehicle) securing one loan secures any other loans. If your loan has a cross collateral...

It appears you have a few issues that must be addressed. One is whether a crime was committed - which if so the police could enter the vehicle as stolen in the national database. Another is whether you had a valid contract with the purchaser. Third, is whether an actual sale of the vehicle... Read more »

A motion to vacate based on "evident partiality" is a very tough motion. You need something more than a generalized suspicion that the arbitrator, though he works in the same business as your opponent in the Arbitration, was "evident[ly] partial."
Further, assuming that... Read more »

You should have an attorney review the contract and other documents that you signed but generally contracts are binding upon the parties and they can't change the terms.

The hospital says they don't have any information about the bill. Can the law firm get an itemized statement from them without my consent?

I don't understand your question.
If the law firm represents you, then they can request a statement from the hospital with a signed medical release.
If a law firm is trying to collect payment on a hospital bill from you, the law firm can provide you a copy of that bill... Read more »

It depends on a lot of things. The wording of your decree regarding debt, the timing of the purchases, and whether it is a debit or credit card. I wish I could help you more, but I would hire an attorney to help you clear it up.

Possibly, but not necessarily. You will need to did a little deeper and see if the harm has been satisfied or released.
I have text messages where he stated we would work out rent after the water and plumbing was fixed. Now he is refusing to move forward fixing problems till I pay two months rent that was not our agreement what grounds do I have to stand on?
answered on Jul 31, 2020
Unless you have a written lease agreement the "grounds you have to stand on" are commonly called quicksand. In the absence of a written lease, your landlord can evict you at any time unless you continue to pay rent; withholding rent is a sure-fire way to get evicted.

The Total Loss Threshold is 60% in Oklahoma, the repair costs are currently around $25,000, the vehicle's value is around $37,000-$39,000.
