Sorry about the car.

First of all, under California law, they cannot sue you for the dog bite if they were on your property.

Next, they cannot repo a car for a small amount of $121. There is something wrong with the behavior of this repo man, and I think if you sue them in small claims court you will get your car back if you make the $121 payment.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
