AGAIN - I received a series of questions from the Defendants

HELLO AGAIN -I received a series of questions from the Defendants lawyer asking for responses to questions and asking to produce documents about this lawsuit in 30 days time.I responded with the answers and produced documents that shot down his countersuit saying he had not been paid. His lawyer told me that the lawyers son had been in an accident and had sever head trauma and just to hold on to all of my documents and we would get back to them if I could give him some time to assist his son. No problem - I had compassion for him. I then sent back in the same legal form the same exact questions and asked for the same exact documents in the same legal form that he sent me, only reversing the plaintiff/defendant pose in the wording. ONe day before the thirty day cut off, I received his response to the documents, not the questions, that said that I was overreaching, he was not in control of the documents (including any documents that said that he was underpaid or not paid) and saying that I was concluding legal answers like he was suppose to escrow the money, have a license, advertised that he was bonded and insured , which he did advertise - and generally saying that he was not in possession of any documents that would fulfill my quest for documentation. There was a small blurb at the end of several of the requests saying that he might produce some documents if he was able at a future date. I spoke briefly to the lawyer on the phone and he said he had filed for a dismissal of the counterclaim of non-payment and also filed in the court something called special exceptions. The Defendant also has not answered any of the request for answers to the questions, only this 16 page document refusing or denying any ability to show documents. I called the Court and she said that she would send the filed paperwork to me without telling me what the special exceptions were. Who's responsibility is it to send the Plaintiff paperwork filed by the Defendant? And how can the Defendant just refuse or not answer questions like "do you have business insurance" or "were the painters at my house that you sent on your payroll as employees or are they subcontractors"? The thirty days required to give answers and send documents is over. No questions were answered and all document questions were answered with the rebuff of "not under the control of the Defendant". I was asking for vendors receipts, etc. that showed what type of materials he used on my home and he refused to give me during the construction process. Am I being blown off here?

Does an independent sales contractor have any liability when

I am thinking of starting an online marketplace and

I am thinking of starting an online marketplace for tool and equipment rentals and I'm wondering about what sort of liability I would hold as the facilitator of the transaction. For example if a renter falls off the ladder they rented through the marketplace, would I be liable for those damages? What steps could I take to mitigate that risk? Is there an existing business insurance that would cover that sort of liability?

My wife and I are being sued by ***** ***** for selling "replicas" to a police informant. We may be facing criminal charges as well- we are a mom and pop selling just a handful of items mainly to friends. The police raided our house ant took all of our computers as well as a few ***** ***** bags and earrings. I am freaked outJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: I advertised on Craigslist a few replica watches and the informant bought two followed up by buying a couple of bags totally $900.
