I sold a car the person that bought the car was suppose to pick the car up in 30 days. He didn't pick the car up, he called about a year latter. At the time I still had the car, the buyer at the time say that he would there in a few days. He still didn't pick the car up. Call about a year latter for a second time, wife called to say that he would be there the next day. The buyer didn't show up again to pick the car up. About six months after the second call the buyer called again, and that time the seller told buyer that car was given the car away as junk. Spoke with buyer after the car was gone, the buyer was verbal abusive and threat to sue and jail time. I have receive a notice to appear in court does the buyer have a legal leg to stay on.

I have a guy threatening to sue me over a 'deal' we made

I have a guy threatening to sue me over a 'deal' we made about a car i got from him.. He told me it was a great running car and he fixed the power steering pump. Which he didnt i had to dish out almost 900 a week later because it broke off the car. He gave me the title and i had it registered in my name and he says i still owe him money for it. It wasnt even registered in his name in the first place so on paper he never owned it. He got me to say that i dont owe him nothing for it and he gave me a junk car on facebook messenger. He said all he needed was for me to admit we had a deal and to talk to a lawyer and see me ib small claims court.. Can he sue me bc of what i said?

I signed a contract to work at a hospital for two years. I was given a retention bonus also. The conditions I came in under changed 6 months after I signed on. Pay was cut drastically which made it nearly impossible to make a living. The contract says I have 7 days to pay the money back which I don't have. I know I owe them per the contract but things changed so much I had no choice but to leave. They are threatening me with wage garnishment, repossession among other things.

I received a demand for payment from a debt collector. I

Hi. I received a demand for payment from a debt collector. I responded telling them that I did not feel it was a valid debt, because it was for a medical facility I was sure I had never been to and for the services of a doctor I had not seen. I requested they send validation of debt. Rather than send validation of debt, they served me with a Summons to appear at the Douglas County Courthouse. They make it difficult to get anything to them in a trackable manner, only giving a PO box, with no signing authority for an address. I need to file a response to the court it seems. I have no issue with paying the amount they are asking, if it was a valid debt. But I honestly believe that it is not. I am not sure where to turn next.

Texas Law Question re judgments: (hanky-panky against me) 1.

Texas Law Question re judgments: (hanky-panky against me)1. WHO ELSE, if anyone, besides a “judgment creditor”, as defined below – is entitled to “aid from a court”?2. DOES “aid from a court” – essentially mean having the court do “execution”, i.e. via sheriff or such, or other pressure by the court?3. AND PARTICULARLY, what does “other judgment creditor” (as used in below definition) mean or refer to. Does that refer to “by assignment of judgment” – i. e. “standing in the shoes of” – an original judgment creditor – or a prior “assignee” judgment creditor?4. Again, ANYONE ELSE, entitled to “aid from a court”, besides a “judgment creditor”, as defined below?5. Someone is telling the court, that they are “successor in interest of a final judgment rendered in favor of a Law Office, P.C. – a 9 year ago forfeited entity (charter forfeited by Secretary of State, never revived, judgment never transferred, i.e. “assigned”). Is there even such a thing as “successor in interest of a final judgment”? – or have to be the actual (current? assigned?) “judgment creditor”, as defined below?The Texas law I found:Sec. 31.002. COLLECTION OF JUDGMENT THROUGH COURT PROCEEDING. (a) A judgment creditor is entitled to aid from a court of appropriate jurisdiction through injunction or other means in order to reach property to obtain satisfaction on the judgment if the judgment debtor owns property, including present or future rights to property, etc.(1) "Judgment creditor" means a party in whose favor a judgment has been rendered, whether a plaintiff, counterclaimant, cross-claimant, third party plaintiff, or other judgment creditor.Udo Birnbaum ***@******.***
