but I am just really upset that my membership was cancelled because of this reason
They can cancel it on an assumption?
That's what I don't understand. I feel like he is harassing me on a personal level because he is mad that I am always there with my girlfriend and having fun working out
and he just picked this as a reason to kick me out
the trainer doesn't have a legal claim against me so my question is can I file a legal claim against him?
Exactly- I think I'm making him look bad by the results with my own body and the friends I workout with and my workouts always look more fun than when he is with his clients and looking at me from afar.
So I know that he doesn't have an legal claim against me, that he is only using his power as a fitness manager to cancel my membership but it looks like that must be some sort of discrimination or harassment.
thanks for being available
So a lawyer might be able to make a case using one of those discriminatory grounds? because I feel it is personal but it is not any one of those specific things
Can this get costly? I am wondering how the legal process works because I guess the company has the funds to let the litigation last long
Any idea what a lawyer would charge for a letter?
how much should I expect to pay for a lawyer to file a lawsuit against them?
I mean would the company want to settle it? Is there a likely outcome you can forsee to happen if I did make a case against them
in other words whats more likely- that they will settle or will they force me to drop the case ?
Thanks for your time. last question
do you know what does a harassment lawsuit against a company like this settle for? I mean I have NO IDEA what determines compensation for the defendant . A few thousand, more?
Want to have an idea if the time and money I put in a lawyer will be compensated for in addition to the hurt I feel from being bothered by many of their staff
that leads me to the final question. when I search online, what kind of attorney am I looking for in my area? criminal?
Personal Injury attorney. Got it
Thank you for your help.
I will, thanks.
