I left my automobile with a Saab repair station in March or April of this year. I had a problem with an intermitent inability to start my car, and other repair shops said I must go to a Saab repair station (chevrolet/GM/Saab dealer automechanic). The problem has moved to a hard error. They replaced my inginition switch and now they cannot even start the car. I have given them room to repair it and they did not want to create a crazy bill for me in the diagnosis but now it is not working at all. I want to know what I can do. I want it repaired for free or money for the time I have not had a car, plus the value of the car.

Hello, I am responding to a complaint issued against me. It is a civil case, in which the Plaintiff is demanding $221,000.I want to assert unjust enrichment, as to my mind the appropriate sum is closer to $170,000. But I fear it would be unwise to state that, as naturally, I would prefer to win this case and not pay anything. I don't want to lose the opportunity for the defense, but don't want to risk and "admittance" of even such a high sum. Any recommendations?

I am responding to a set of form interrogatories. I am on the section in which I am being asked to list any denials and affirmative defenses. I am doing so by paragraph (referencing the original complaint). Many of these allegations are very repetitious. Do I need to assert a denial for every time they say the same thing? For example, there are 6 causes of action. At the end of each cause they state that they are owed $221,000.00. Do I need to deny that and assert Unjust Enrichment for each time it is said, or will once suffice?

I need help understanding "Res Judicata/Collateral Estoppel".I am involved in a civil case in which I am being sued for breach of a franchise contract. The plaintiff has thus far only demanded a monetary judgement of $220K. But, has made it know to me that they intend and expect to take possession of my business.In a previous case, in which a very large numbers of franchisee's withdrew from the company, as I have, only a monetary judgement was passed. Would the Res Judicata/Collateral Estoppel prevent something like a cease and desist from being issued?
