Where can I find case law (Ohio or Federal) that favors the consumer involving credit card debt?

I ordered a credit card on behalf of a small business, LLC, and never signed for it, but used it solely for the corporation, but received a judgement against me. I want to file an appeal, Pro Se, and I need case law that favors my opinion. Can you please find some case law that protects a person in a situation like this?

bizlaw :

When you say you did not sign for the card are you saying the application for the card was not signed in any form at all? Also, did the application have a separate place for you to sign as guarantor?

bizlaw :

If you are sued as a guarantor, the agreement is unenforceable if not in writing and signed by the party to be charged. Ohio Revised Code 1335.05.

I am sorry it has taken so long to get back to you.


I will give you a good rating, because you did help a lot, but I still need to know if there is any case law that protects the consumer from a business card ordered for the LLC a consumer owns.


No, the card was never signed. There was no application produced in discovery - just a template the company (american express) said they issue. But the court ruled I was responsible
