I have a woman who sued my 18 year old daughter in small claims and won for an accident that she was involved in with her in 2012. It was my daughters fault. She took my vehicle to go to school, no driver's license and my insurance did not cover it. I paid for the damage to my car and had to pay the ladies insurance company back for loss and damages to her car and several fines. After paying many thousands of dollars out, the woman decides to take my [now 19yr old] daughter for more money in small claims and ultimately won a $5,700 settlement. My daughter is a full time college student now, no job, no money and lives at home. The woman has filed to suspend the license of my daughter and demanded she pay in full. She has no money. So, my daughter agreed to $50 per month until she can get the rest paid. The woman again, denied it and did a full background check on my wife and I and all of our history and assets and is demanding that [we] can afford it and is pressing the courts
to force us to pay up for our [adult] daughter.
This sounds like a clear case of extortion from this woman. In my opinion; the woman should have filed a lawsuit against my wife and I when our daughter was a minor. Now, as an adult, our daughter is responsible for her affairs, although we do support her while she's in school.
The cruel intentions of this woman are calculated and aggressive and she is typical of many in her culture that know the system and sue at a moments notice. Coming after my wife with written words to the court seems unlawful and immoral.
fyi: The woman has enlisted the help of a local Latin legal aid counselor who is assisting her in her every move. At this point; we are waiting to see if the judge is going to see my daughter and hopefully, make a payment arrangement stick, but, is there anything I can do now to sue her for trying to extort my wife and I? Please help. Jim
