I visited this dentist over two years ago and they apparently made a billing error with the change over to a new system. I never received a bill. I had been seeing a different dentist and I recently decided to go back to this office. I made an appointment and was informed of a $250 balance. I... Read more »
SOL has not run on that services charge yet. You might compute your balance and then call them offering payment of the same. Do not send a check, but use a money order. Otherwise they will know where to collect a judgment.
I was delivering an order to my local college campus in TN and while trying to find the apartment number, in the middle of the walkway, I tripped. It looked like maybe 2 poles used to block vehicles from entering that specific path, but they were cut down to maybe 4 inches high. They were rusty,... Read more »
I would suggest you take pictures of your injury as well as the location. If you are needing medical treatment - I would report this to the school and its insurer. They may provide / pay for your medical care. If you are considering a legal route-- you should contact an attorney.
I did not have the boat for sale. It was sitting in the yard and the individual approached me. I told him that it would float and start up and run. He looked at it three times in in a span of a few months. He asked me again to purchase it and I set a low price and he said he wanted it. He came... Read more »
Sounds like its his problem now. He had an opportunity to inspect it and it doesn't sound like you concealed the defect. Hopefully your bill of sale says "as is" or with no warranties - even if it doesn't from your brief facts I'd say he wouldn't have a claim against...Read more »
We are suing a fence builder in Tennessee for an inferior product. We paid to have 10 foot galvanized steel poles used on the fence. They were put in November 2021 and by May 2022 they were failing with peeling, cracking and rusting on the steel poles underneath. There is no way to... Read more »
You will probably be limited to the Contract price unless it allows consequential damages, which is not likely. It will be difficult enough to prove defective materials, which may require an expert. Also it may be difficult to collect a Judgment. Remember you have the burden of proof.
It was on Facebook marketplace he would only accept money order. Asked cost to ship it to New York give me the price. I paid him with a money order. Keep saying it’s shipped says he’ll give me a tracking number and never does.
Only Bankruptcy enjoins debt collection. Debt Consolidation does not prohibit collection, but only gets the creditors to voluntarily agree to hold off. But if they sue, it is not a defense. Hire a competent attorney to represent you, as obviously you are trying to deal with this yourself.
You may or may not have a Governmental Tort Liability Act/ 18 USC Section 1983 action, as it sounds like you were not charged. But you will need damages, which are capped. Consult with a competent attorney.
If in Sessions Court, you have to point out the contractual term to the Judge. If in a Court of Record, then file the Answer asserting the arbitration requirement. If defending yourself, you must actively assert your contractual rights or they will be ignored.
You will not be able to check everywhere and at any time. But you can call each Court and ask the Clerk to see if were a party in a suit there. Your name may be a problem, so you may want to ask about one or more names. Start with the County where you live and call General Sessions. Later...Read more »
SOL of property torts is 3 years. So the owner has plenty of time to sue you for damages. I would think they would keep your security deposit and forget about the rest. But if they serve you with a Civil Warrant, go to Court and deny any such damages.
I called a bankruptcy lawyer in 2020, she said it was not worth going bankrupt if I was on social security. Social security could not be garnished. So I just stopped paying the loan company, the balance is a little over $3000.
It can be very difficult. There is a civil penalty Statute for failure to release a lien, but lapse of time is inapplicable. You can request the creditor to release or file suit to have the issuing Court declare it released. Slander of Title actions usually violate the SOL.
If a contractor has done shoddy work and has not yet finished the job or fixed the issues - Can I bring them to small claims court? How long do I have to do so? Can I seek a refund on monies already paid? They have stopped returning my calls. They are also way past when they promised the work would... Read more »
Yes. You can file a claim in Tennessee's version of small claims court- called General Sessions Court. You would feel out a pleading called a Warrant. You can also report the contractor to the state licensing board.
I left my ex at the end of October 2020. I had to leave all my personal property behind at his house because there is a history of abuse and I needed to get out fast. A ban notice (no trespassing?) was issued against me. Since then, I have made several attempts to arrange for a 3rd party to pick up... Read more »
An Action to Recover Personal Property in General Sessions Court would be the proper way to handle this. It may require a Bond and your assisting the Sheriff's Department. Apparently you are having difficulty, so an attorney might help.
Back in 2015 my mom gave her church a big check of my guess $5000 or more from my dad's investment from his job in sales. He was a hard worker. She expected her church to help me out after she died. They never helped me at all.
I even filed a complaint with the IRS and made anonymous... Read more »
Based on your limited facts, its hard to see any potential claim. Seems like the money may have been a gift, in which case there would be no claim. But also, even assuming you were a third-party beneficiary to a contract; it may be hard to pursue any claim for breach of contract based on the...Read more »
If there was some reaffirmation of the debt by your Wife, then the normal 6 year SOL starts from there to sue her. The Misdemeanor SOL has long since run. The check language might contain an argument for a 10 year SOL for demand notes, but I doubt it. If a bad credit report is made, contest...Read more »
My husband and I traded a car even from a private party. They guy said it was a clean title to the car so before exchanging titles we made sure everything matched up with the car (title has no lean holder on it) My husband went to register it at the court house and was told it was the wrong title...

Your seller has ripped you off. Contact him and demand he pay off the title loan and get you a good title. If not, you sue him in General Sessions for breach of contract and conversion. I do not believe there are criminal violations here, but you might call the Sheriff. Recission and return...Read more »
