1. My son bought a car at a buy-here-pay-here and I co-signed2. There was problems with the vehicle: ac not working, tail light not working, cosmetic details, clutch issues3.My son tells me when he took it to the shop the person there said they don't work on that type of car (VW Beetle)4.Two weeks after he purchased the car he ran over a stump and damaged the cars front end and radiator5.We had the car towed to where we bought the car and the owner filed a claim with the insurance company6.Insurance company totals the car saying it would cost too much to repair and the vehicle is not worth it7.After all is said and done they pay out to the owner 750.00(less 1000 detuctable)to the owner. So the owner now has roughly 1200.00 toward a vehicle that the insurance co. said was worth 2300.00.8.Owner calls me wanting his money for the vehicle. I do not think I should have to pay for the damages that were present prior to the accident they agreed to fix. Tax, Title things like that...he is in possession of the vehicle.9. The owner started a verbal altercation over the phone accusing me of lying and making things up and I just hung up10. So legally am I responsible for the damages they did not fix prior to my son hitting the stump with the car? What is my legal responsibility.

How would I go about suing a former employer termination

How would I go about suing a former employer for wrongful termination after the owner threatened me with violence, being screamed at, spit in the face, made to say untrue things, as if I were a puppet, under the threat of being fired if I don't and getting beaten up. And then later, when I said I would not be spoken to in that manner or be threatened as I was, and that further threats would be force to pursue other opportunities, only to be told to turn in my keys ad stay off the property. But that's just part of it. My pay was part salary and part 3% of the net of my store. As no financial has ever been provided to me, and knowing the business I'm in involves manufacturer rebates that I'm confident were not included in the net payment I received, along with other adjustments he likely made to his benefit, sue him for anti-trust as well?

I was recently dismissed of all domestic violence charges

I was recently dismissed of all domestic violence charges which led to my arrest because it was uncovered that the person who made these accusations to the police concealed all their txt messages and emails - over 5000 - which were contemporaneous to the time the party alleged to have been harassed. He also, to sustain the charges coerced a key witness into signing a suporting affidavit under durress. That witness came forward and signed a sworn affidavit alleging to the coercion. The accuser also perjured his own supporting affidavit. All of the aforementioned are facts, not speculation. I am rightfully indignant the prosecuter did not choose to charge for coercion or perjury, which is their right, although I think it is ludicrous. Two questions - I want some recourse. I do not want advice on a civil suit - I want to know if there is ANY accountability for prosecuters who do not charge for actual, uncovered crimes, or are they actually 100% immune? More importantly, I want to know if I can now file a police report against the man who did this to me -- and what grounds if any would I have? I am ot an attorney, so in my laymen terms I would want to file a police report for - obstruction of justice? lying to a police officer? coercing a witness? Can I do this, or would the police not take this domestic incident report seriously if the prosecuter did not choose to file charges - or could I convince police to make the arrest because I also think making false accusations / concealing egregious amounts of evidence is using the police to harass innocen parties. I believe this individual MUST face criminal recourse for what has transpired and there must be a way in the law to hold him accountable for such criminal acts.

I was in a casual relationship where the lady made a lot of

I was in a casual relationship where the lady made a lot of money and purchased expensive gifts for me because she wanted me to be happy. She signed a lease as a co-signer for me, paid the down payment on a lease for me, bought me a computer, new mattress, and a couch, among other things. I broke up with her for many reasons that included her making up things, constantly lying to me. When we purchased the couch we were at IKEA together. I paid for the shipping to my apartment, she was there was it was delivered and helped me build it. She now demands to have the couch and the mattress back, although they were a gift. I had a couch and mattress previously that I threw away for the new ones. The apartment is knows that she is not allowed access to the apartment, but can she legally take back the items and or enter with law enforcement while I am not home? I'm loosing sleep over this. The state I love in is Rhode Island.
