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.
The truck is $692 a week for 208 weeks which is for 4 years. Im 3 years and 2 months in and want to pay it off early. Im was told that I could not pay it off early but every company or place that has a lease has an early pay out option. It’s not in the lease agreement that I can’t pay it off early.
I have paid 85% of the contract price but stopped making payments because I want to sue the seller for the amount I’ve paid so far. Does the non disclosure of the liens by the seller open the door for breach of contract and refund?
The Bulk Sale Law is probably violated. But you will need to examine your potential defendant. If no disclosure was made, then breach of contract may not have occurred. Obviously you did not check this out prior to purchase. Hire a competent attorney to examine your choices.
A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. You could consider reposting and adding Landlord-Tenant as a category, especially if the substantive law involved in your matter involves a L-T issue. You're correct in choosing arbitration as a heading, but...View More
If you have property that is owned by others, then yes the rightful heirs can claim the property. This is especially true when a Probate Administration is filed and the Administrator is marshaling up the assets. Criminal charges may be possible.

I don't remember signing anything to the Third Party Administrator to share my Work Comp provider's medical record (for me) with their outside attorney. I stopped the arbitration process. It wasn't working. This attorney is an outside attorney only. Now the the... View More
A Tennessee attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. In terms of GENERAL insurance doctrine, regardless of the type of insurance, carriers or their TPAs can delegate defense matters to counsel of their choosing, inhouse or outside. But that is only a general insurance...View More

Both retailer & Mgfr agree defective. But we took the Law Tag off. We did not receive instructions from retailer as to Warranty nor did we receive a warranty booklet/tag upon delivery. The retailer offered 50% but rescinded after we went to TN Div of Consumer Affairs. We purchased $7,500.00... View More
At this point, with your post still remaining open, you could try to arrange a brief consult with a Tennessee attorney familiar with consumer law to advise you whether this would be viable to pursue, and your options under arbitration, small claims, or other venues.

I have had correspondence with lawfirm who agreed to payments on a debt. Today there was a card from a lady who tried to serve me for a lawsuit. I haven’t been able to find anything about the lawsuit yet and am unsure of how i would find this. Any advice? The payments have not defaulted.
If a lawsuit has been filed, it is a public record at the courthouse. However, it will only be filed in one county ( not all of them) and many times, the plaintiff has a choice as to which county they may elect to file in. For example, if the debt is the result of an auto accident, the plaintiff...View More
They helped us mive from GA to TN 2 years ago. We made a partial payment to them and they moved most of our stuff. They had to go back and get a few remaining possessions and have held onto them while waiting for us to pay the remaining balance. We've had financial difficulties and have... View More
You are better off first complying with all Court Sentencing requirements, then contacting the Department of Safety and complying with their requirements to obtain a Tennessee Driver's License. Putting the alcohol device on the car is expensive and you need to get your money's worth...View More
Sorry, but much more information is needed to determine where you sound file for divorce. Based on the brief info provided, my first impression is to hire an attorney in Louisiana. Louisiana law differs from the rest of the United States in some ways because of its history as a French colony (...View More
yes, if you get sued and lose, the judgment against you becomes a lien on ANY property you own. The judgment is good for 10 years, and will attach to property you acquire in the future during that 10 year period. Perhaps you should consult a bankruptcy lawyer.
I am disabled, been through many recent surgeries and I have the final hearing coming up next week. The arbitrator is horribly conflicted with the opposing attorney. Is there a motion I can file in the original county court, or even federal to not only slow this train, but also bring attention as... View More
