There is a road adjoining our property which we always were told was a private road. The man who said he owned this road sold the right of way to us in 2013. We paid $3450 for this ROW and have been paying property taxes on that parcel of land. We have since sold 1.78 acres adjoining said ROW to... Read more »
Apparently you did not check the title. If not a warranty deed, no cause of action probably exists as a practical matter. With a WD, it will still be iffy. You might ask the Trustee for the taxes back, or even sue for them, but I doubt it will be successful.
It is my understanding that it is not enough for one party to prove he/she did not intend a binding contract but must prove that both parties agreed there was no binding contract between them. Is this correct in TN law?
Both parties must agree to as to the formation of a contract - a unilateral "contract" generally would not be binding. But contracts can be formed by one party requesting an action and the other party performing and the performance is an acceptance- so your question's answer may be fact specific.
Nonavailability of transportation is not a legal defense. Hire an attorney to represent you and go from there upon his advice. At least file an Answer within 30 days of service, and call the Clerk & Master about this Case. If being sued for money, you probably need to examine your...Read more »
My aunt has weaseled her way into being the trustee because the original trustee not one of the beneficiaries turned it down and named her. My aunt named her husband as her successor trustee and her husband named the original trustee who turned it down.

I was fired from a local company and the reason was they found out I was in recovery and said via text “we can’t have you come back with your history of drug abuse. We are afraid you’ll steal”. I have asked this question multiple time and can’t get a response. Do I have any legal action?
Unless you put a Lien on the Title, a non-judicial repossession is out. Sue in General Sessions for the Debt, then possibly execute upon the car if a bank account is not available. If you still hold Title, then file an Action to Recover Personal Property, also in Sessions.
I got the car on November 5 and put $1000 down and on November 7.

You can file suit for Conversion in General Sessions Court, but I doubt it is worth the trouble. Even with a Judgment, then you have to collect. Their position obviously has some merit, since it is your credit that was not sufficient.
