Check engine light was on. They said it was just a misfire on one of my coils they fixed it. They charged us 800 the next day. My car left me at the dentist place with my daughter.

In Oregon, if your car's engine failed shortly after receiving service from a dealership, you may have grounds to pursue a claim under product liability and consumer law. Initially, gathering all relevant documentation, including service records, receipts, and any communication with the...View More
It depends upon the exact facts but likely not. You likely DO have claims against both the daughter and the dealer if you want to pursue them. If you do pursue claims against anyone else, I would expect them to sue your daughter as part of the proceeding - and she sounds to be the biggest culprit...View More
More information is needed. Was July rent ever paid? Was November rent ever paid? If all past due rent was paid within the 10 days specified in the notice, it likely is a defense to any eviction. You say the eviction process continues but they should not have even filed in court to evict until...View More
My minivan was being held overnight for service at the dealership (located in Oregon). I did not have the opportunity to remove my belongings because I was told the work would be done that day. They did not complete any work and told me they would have to keep it. When I called for an update the... View More
In Oregon, when your vehicle is left at a dealership for service, a bailment is created, which means the dealership may have a duty to take reasonable care of your property. However, the specific terms of the service agreement and the dealership's policies may affect this responsibility. If...View More

As far as your question, if you rented from a Rent-A-Center in Washington, the contract probably will be governed under Washington law. Check your contract to see if that is the case. If so, you will need to speak with a Washington licensed attorney.
The tickets were being sold for outrageously high prices and there were third party tickets being sold on the Ticketmaster site with those high prices. When I attempted to buy a ticket the prices were not in my means. I kept returning to the website hoping for a price drop and the pop up msg on the... View More
You don't identify why you think you have a claim. They routinely disclose that some of their tickets are being re-sold at higher than initial venue prices and may change at any time. You waited, then you pounced, only to find that you would have been better off waiting longer. That was a...View More
In a federal diversity civil action brought in the District of Vermont (location of plaintiff), can the Jane Doe defendant, through her counsel, petition for a change of venue to the District of Oregon (her residence) while preserving her anonymity or must she reveal her identity to move the case?...

Your questions rasie some questions. You mentioned "civil action" without specifically referencing what type of claim it is and why the Vermont has any jursidiction. If you have no ties to Vermont, then you cannot be subjected to personal jurisdiction there unless you consent and/or...View More

You are not likely to be able to disavow the contract and even if you did, it sounds like it cannot be reversed at this point. The most you are likely to possibly have is a claim for the market value of your now deceased cat - i.e. replacement cost. Unfortunately, in the legal world, pets are not...View More
The amount is $2,000.00. It is for agreed-on reimbursements for concrete work that was not performed. The check came back as 'fictitious' . The bank wouldn't give me anymore information. Do I take it to small claims court or somewhere else? I did send a demand letter 30 days ago with no success.
The question really is whether you can actually collect a Judgment from the guy and if so, is it cost effective to try. If not, suing and trying to forcibly collect is a waste of time and money. If worth it, small claims court hha
If you're concerned that someone has stolen your identity, the first step is to check your credit reports for any unfamiliar activity. This can be done by requesting a free report from the three major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. These reports will show you any new...View More
An Oregon attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. You could ask here, but it looks like your question wasn't picked up. Some questions here go unanswered, but if you wanted to try reposting, there's a section - "Social Security." Attorneys who...View More
In Oregon, I had an old car that broke down but somehow skirted around my comprehensive, gap, and insurance coverage.

I pre-ordered products from a merchant and place the charges on my credit card.

You must have a basis to sue your insurance company. You cannot sue your car company merely for asking for documentation to support a claim you are making. To answer this question, more context is needed. What is the underlying claim you are making that would entitle you to insurance coverage?...View More
This depends on if you created it as a company employee, or in your free time for yourself. It is sometimes hard to prove both of them. It all depends on jurisdiction. I would recommend you to contact local attorney to discuss this matter.
They should require two signatures IF the check was made payable to one person and a second one. If it was just payable to the two names without the "and" included, then either could cash it with just their signature. Instead of "and", an "or" is legally implied.
