I live in New Hampshire and recently bought a used truck at

I live in New Hampshire and recently bought a used truck at a dealership in Chicopee, Massachusetts. The way vehicle sales are handled in Massachusetts are quite different from NH. The dealership insisted on delivering the truck to my home town and at that time the driver went into the town clerks office with me and offered to pay the town part of the registration which was $738.00. Today the financial officer of the dealership called me saying someone screwed up and never should have paid for it. So my question is am I responsible for paying them back the money that I never asked for them to pay?

I obtained a restraining order in the state of Massachusetts

I obtained a restraining order in the state of Massachusetts against an individual. The defendant filed a Motion "Defendant's Motion to Stay Order Entered on Sep 9" to the Superior Court, four days after issue of the order, that is, on Sep 13. Two days later, on Sep 15, before the Superior Court even considered the Motion or received an Opposition to the Motion from me the plaintiff, the defendant raised a Motion to the Appellate Court "To Stay Order Pending Appeal", infringing on the procedural rule: Appellate Procedure Rule 6, Civil Cases (a), (1) Stay Must Ordinarily be Sought in the First Instance in Lower Court; Motion for Stay in Appellate Court. "A motion for such relief may be made to the appellate court or to a single justice, but the motion shall show that application to the lower court for the relief sought is not practicable, or that the lower court has denied an application, or has failed to afford the relief which the applicant requested, with the reasons given by the lower court for its action."My question is: what is the procedure that I have to follow with the Massachusetts Appellate Court to request the court to deny the motion on grounds of infringing the procedural Rule 6(a)(1)? By a letter to the judge? As part of the arguments in the "Opposition" to the Motion e.g. Opposition to Defendant's Motion document? Using a special document or procedure that is designed for exactly this particular purpose?
