I have been sued in small claims court for something that

I have been sued in small claims court for something that happened three years ago. My dog nipped her daughter when she went up my driveway. There was no blood, it got a little red and I immediately brought her in the house and put ice on it. We called the mother, she came over and agreed it was fine and my husband told her if she took her to the doctor, we would pay the bill. We saw them a few days later and the daughter had a bandaid on her leg and was wearing the hospital is tag. This happened on September 9, 2013 and today I got a letter from a lawyer that she filed on September 15, 2016. Isn't this past the time limit to file? The plaintiff contacted me by face book and told me two weeks before Christmas in 2013 (when we were displaced from our home by fire) that she received the hospital bill and that it was over $700. I told her to send me a copy of the bill or she could give it to my husband where he works. She said no, you can pay me by cash or check at my home or my place of business. So, after she left my house saying it would be fine, she took her daughter to the police station and filed a complaint. She then took her daughter to the emergency room. When she asked for the cash, I contacted the police department and they told me to not pay anything by cash or a check made out to her. I thought we would receive a bill, although I couldn't understand why it was so expensive with no stitches, no severe bite. Two weeks ago, she wrote me on Facebook Messenger and said, " I should not have to pay a bill that was put in collection.

If a vehicle was purchased in 2014 with the deal breaker of

If a vehicle was purchased in 2014 with the deal breaker of the car having 4wd/wad for trips to New England during December and during the trips to New England there was no snow and use for 4wd/awe and one it is learned that the vehicle does not have 4wd/awe, what is my options with the dealership. Florida has no need for this feature and the dealership is using the 2 years against me. After purchasing the vehicle, I questioned the sales rep at least 6 times to make sure this vehicle had that function. I never would have mad the purchase had I known. I met with the sales rep and manager, they offered me a 2017 vehicle, with me paying $14,000. I feel that the dealership should write of the $14,00 as I lurched this vehicle under false pretenses and was advised several times that it had this feature. Can you please give some advice. Any help/ advice that you can give me will be great fully appreciated. Thank you in advance. Flo Fox-Hayes, Okeechobee, Florida

Los Angeles I need to sue my 2 brothers. The 3 of us are

Los AngelesI need to sue my 2 brothers.The 3 of us are co-trustees for my 95 year old father. Brothers had him deemed Incapacitated with an Affidavit of Successor Trustee, last July. Right after that my younger brother said the roof needed to be replaced. He sent a roofer to inspect it and the roofer confirmed it.My father's finances were low due to remodeling the kitchen ($68000) and my mother's funeral a couple years later ($23000). So I entered into a verbal loan agreement with my brothers to pay for the roof, with the money being paid back to me when my father could pay me back.Right after that, my father's condition became such that a 24/7 caregiver needed to be hired to take care of him. We sold my father's house to pay the caregiver agency $5400 per month. The house was sold for $640,000 and the money is in the bank.My brothers will not pay me the $6000. I have called, written emails, texts, etc. for months now, to no avail. Can I sue them? Since they are co-trustees to my father's estate, does it have to go thru a different court? Or Do I have to sue my father's estate or him?This is a terrible situation. Please help.

While my husband and I were separated but trying to work

While my husband and I were separated but trying to work things out and dating, he used to send me naked pictures. We were together trying to work on the marriage (or that was what I was made to believe for over 1.5 years). One day I was talking to his sister and she was asking me questions about her brother and I told her we were dating and working things out and getting together. Well she asked me for proof of those texts and some of those pictures as proof. Well, I screenshot some texts and I think I sent her lower body naked pic as proof (I didn't understand why she was asking me but I found out later on that it was because he was with another woman at the same time). Would that a considered dissemination of pictures and a felony? I did not publish them or threaten anyone with them or threaten or make them public. I was wondering if he could file charges against me for sending it to his sister? This was done over 1.5 years ago and he knew about it at that time.

Almost 2 months ago my husband and I used our bank mobile

Almost 2 months ago my husband and I used our bank mobile phone app to transfer money ($2050) from his account to mine using my phone number. I accidentally typed in the wrong phone number and it went to a stranger's phone. This stranger then deposited the money in his account. Upon realizing my mistake which was about 5 minutes later we contacted the bank. They claimed that they could not cancel the transaction but they opened a claim to try to retrieve the funds from the stranger's account. They said it would be resolved in 10 days. 2 weeks later it was still unresolved. Finally after about 1 month they said that because the stranger had withdrawn the funds and had a negative balance in their account they denied our claim.Do we have any legal recourse against the bank? They will not give us the name of the person that took our money without a subpoena. So we can't sue them. Can we go to small claims court against the bank and if so is there a statute of limitations?

What laws are in place that discuss amendments made to

What laws are in place that discuss amendments made to trusts that were not properly made and what are my remedies here... Its been almost five years since it happened but i just discovered it. The trustees added themselves to my special trust, removed the hems standard, and a number of other changes were made at the same time five years ago. Ive recently obtained a true copy of the trust with all the amendments and discovered that my signature was forged on two notifications of those amendments and i was never told about those two amendments. So fast forward to today... Long story short, ive been evicted from my home and cut off from the trust and they are saying that ive violated the no contest clause and no longer have a trust because I sued them for commiting a number of torts against me. But i didnt even know they were trustees until recently, they were the trystees of my grandfathers main trust but my grandfather didnt intend on them being trustees of my special trust, they added themselves in addition to my mother five years ago without the ability to do it. Now they are saying that i cant do anything about it because its too late, is that true?
