My neighbor's pit bull mauled my cocker spaniel puppy, and I am devastated. She had her pit bull euthanized, but that doesn't take away from the fact that my dog is dead. I am planning on suing her for the expense related to its death, but my neighbor says that if I do, she will countersue for reimbursement for her dog! Can she do that? Please advise. -- Sandy from
I am so sorry for the loss of your puppy. How many pets and children do pit bulls have to maul before they are banned? To answer your question, your neighbor can certainly try to countersue for the reimbursement of her beloved "pet"; however, the chances of her winning the case are slim to none. She had a dangerous animal in her possession and should fully reimburse you for the loss of your dog, not the other way around.
I gave two personal loans to a former friend and also paid her rent for a couple months while we were roommates. She won't pay me back because, according to her, I was just "being a good friend" even though I made it verbally clear that these were all loans to be repaid. Is she able to get away with this? -- Louis from
It looks like you have been duped, my friend. I fully believe that you made it verbally clear to your friend that these were simply all loans to be repaid; however, you would have a stronger case if you had made her sign a promissory note. You may just have to count your losses and consider this a hard lesson learned. Don't be so naive next time!
My mother used my
Well that is absolutely absurd. How dare your mother run up your credit card! It's so disappointing to hear that someone's mother behaves in this way and takes advantage of her own child. If you were to take this to court, you would absolutely win.
My ex-boyfriend bought himself a gold chain with a jewelry store credit card that I opened up for him during our relationship. He promised to make all the payments on it but never came through. The only reason I found out is because I got a call two months later saying that my account was being closed! When I confronted him about this, he started saying that he "thought it was a gift from me" and now refuses to pay me. What can I do, Nancy? -- Jessica from N.J.
Is this guy for real? If this was truly a gift, then why is it that he is the one with the receipt while the bills are going to you? Clearly, it wasn't a gift, and he needs to pay you for the chain. As long as you have copies of the bills, you should have a winning case.
