Lawyer: MDLaw, Attorney replied 8 years ago
You said that you owed them money and so I am confused about what money you want to sue them for if you still owe them money. Please clarify.

i would like to sue so i dont owe them..so i can continue my education else where ..plus other expences ,books , dorms ,ect.. and time consumed maintaining a "B" average w/ no credit to show for it...
Lawyer: MDLaw, Attorney replied 8 years ago
You cannot sue them for money damages that you have not suffered. Here is an analogy to better explain: If you buy a widget from me for 100 and I give you the widget but you don't pay me for it, you cannot sue me for the $100 since you never paid me. I, however, would be able to sue you for the money you owed me.

the school was paid mostly via a student loan, that i now owe ..so i cant get a loan to continue my education,because i dont have any credits related to that semester ...
Lawyer: MDLaw, Attorney replied 8 years ago
Unfortunately, you cannot sue the school for the fact that you cannot get a loan.

so it is legal for a school to get around $15,0000 on my behalf and i dont get any credit or able to continue my education...because of something that was very minor that happened off campus..now i dont understand! how can a institution just riun my life so easily?
Lawyer: MDLaw, Attorney replied 8 years ago
The school has the right to set their own policies as to student conduct. As to the getting credit issue, if you were not able to complete the semester because of your conduct, it is against up to the school. You would likely lose any lawsuit brought against them. You can, however, hire an attorney to put pressure on the school but that's your only recourse left if you have already gone through the appeal process.

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.
