You have to ask the law firm representing you in the class action lawsuit. But if the action is still pending, many firms could be reluctant to speculate about an outcome or to discuss figures.

Better check in with JAG corps on this--sounds like potential multiple violations. You should know that access is for the specific purpose only. Can you hand out cards, or other items? Not sure of that but if someone is looking to burn you you're giving them a match it seems to me.

In a products liability case you need to have a duty, breach of the duty and damages. I’m not sure if pizza delivery gives rise to a duty. What are your damages? You would have to have damages in the six figure area to warrant the expense of litigation.

Your question went out to the family law attorneys. You should discuss this with a personal injury attorney. My thoughts are that, unless you actually suffered damages, there are no grounds for a lawsuit, but, as I said, you should check with a personal injury attorney.

Hope you told your credit card company the amount is in dispute. Did you have witnesses? Find out what they are claiming are the damages--if it's things like undercarriage likely you didn't cause them.

Peter N. Munsing's answer
So you want to sue because you wanted to submit someone else's work as yours to a college--this is called plagiarism--and you don't think the author of the work did a good job. First, if the citation was proper but someone made an error in the author's name it's a tad sloppy but it happens and I wouldn't see a case built on that assuming the work and pages cited were appropriate and relevant.

But no court is likely to want you to reap a benefit because the tool of an (academic crime)...

Q: can i sue a seller for shipping a lethal weapon unsafely

Peter N. Munsing's answer
You can only sue if something bad happened--an injury. You don't sue because something might have happened. Assuming the weapon got to you safely then I don't see anything . If you were charged because of the shipping issue you would have a defense that you had no control over how it was shipped.

If there had been air bag deployment your vehicle may have been totaled anyway--have to add to the damages cost of replacing the airbag(s). Your fear of that didn't make it unusable. Also, if the hit was not dead center or within 7 degrees of top dead center, the airbag may not deploy. So depending on how the crash happened, a perfect airbag would be designed to only go off at the correct andgle and wouldn't go off at another angle.

Unless Jeep knew of this before your wreck, unless you...

Q: Notery lost title for motorcycle. Anything I can do?

William Head's answer
Possibly take a small claims court case, for whether the costs are to verify your ownership, and get a replacement title. This is a big pain in the ass, but you set yourself up for it, by circumventing the law that the document needed to be completely filled out. Plus, you should have taken possession. In many states, what you did is a criminal act. Not sure about PA.
