I borrowed a family member $5,000 about 25 years ago. I threw out the records I had kept because I thought I would never collect this debt. He is about to win a lawsuit. Is there a way I can claim this money from him?

We are a -haul trucking company with our own semi-truck

We are a long-haul trucking company with our own semi-truck repair shop. We make repairs to the owner operators' semi-trucks for thousands of dollars at a time. Little by little they pay us back. However, sometimes they leave our trucking company and they don't pay their repair bills. We currently have several such truck owners. The amounts they owe us range between $15K and $40K per truck. I know that filing liens against their trucks would be a complex process involving submitting complicated paperwork and closely following various deadlines. I need to find a reputable company whose employees would follow all rules and regulations and file proper IL Labor and Storage liens on the trucks. I found numerous Commercial Debt Collection companies online (attorneys), however they all said they didn't file liens.

I have a bunch of different clients with analytical

Hi,I have a bunch of different clients with analytical data (traffic metrics and financial info) in one account. I can give full access to a departing client so they can see everything for their account, add and delete users and do everything they want, but they cannot delete me. (It's just a function of how these accounts are built.) They are clamoring for the highest level access which would allow them to delete me, and I would lose access to my other client data. And they would also have access to several dozen client's data. What I want to know is what laws would that violate, them having access to private financial data? I need to explain this to them in a way that makes it clear it's not something they want.

Year ago I paid collection agency by $250.00 by money order

Year ago I paid collection agency by $250.00 by money order send via USPS certified mail, signature required. Three months ago I received the same $250.00 collection bill from different collection agency. I disputed the debt and I asked (twice) the collection company (via certified mail) to verify the bill in collection but the collection agency did not answer at all. The second collection agency posted it on my credit report the $250.00 as an account in collection. I sent the collection agency (via certified mail) second $250.00 money order and I filed a $1,000.00 case against the CREDITOR in Small Claim Court for violation of the California Fair Debt Collection Act.The CREDITOR'S attorney called me to inform me that I cannot sue the creditor and I should pay the 250.00 plus interest before they will countersue and there will be a judgment on my credit file. I informed him that I mailed twice $250.00 money order exactly as the bill stated and I can send him copy of the checks and copy of the certified mail form with the signature returned form. The attorney said that collection agencies did not cash the money order checks.If I do not pay it (third time), before the defendant will file a counterclaim, Can I have a judgment on my credit report if I provide the judge with copies of the money orders and the signed receipt?Should I pay the $250.00 third time, plus the interest, before the defendant will file a counterclaim, so I can avoid the judgment?Can I ask the judge to order the defendant to pay me back the overpayment on the collection bill?Thank you.
