Meth Mechanic Slander!-Plaintiff wanted car fixed by mechanic, paid $1500, to have a Mercedes fixed. Car had to be towed to mechanic's shop, in January. She needs extra cars for her job as a process server. Plaintiff had car towed back to her house in March. Plaintiff wanted her car finished ASAP, paid the $1500 in money, and a necklace to pay for the parts for the car.
Plaintiff claims mechanic/defendant yelled at her, however, she seems to be the one with the short temper. Mechanic said it would take an entire day to finish her car, was 50 miles from his shop to her house. Plaintiff gets $1500 for parts, but minus her nasty postings.
After the dust up, plaintiff said on social media (craigslist, yelp, etc) he was a meth user, and claims he let a drug user drive her vehicle (which was undriveable). She also posted that there was drug paraphernalia in the car, and it was only at his shop for three days, out of the year the woman owned the car. Plaintiff denies going to his children's school, but boasts that she made a CPS report about him. (the nasty reviews and postings are still on the internet). She sent over 1,000 text messages, posted pictures of his house, and address, posted nasty things about the man, and his family. Plaintiff gets nothing, and deserves less. Plaintiff posted defendant and wife on numerous sex sites, leading to phone calls at all hours of the night.
Defendant gets $5k, and plaintiff gets no money.
Safe Deer...Injured Car!-Plaintiff suing former employee/defendant for crashing a work vehicle. Defendant claims he was dodging a deer. Defendant was allowed to take the work car home, to and from work. $420 to defendant for his last week's wages.
Defendant was charged with making false statements to a police officer, and other charges. He paid the homeowners for the mailbox he hit, and plaintiff told to use his company insurance on the car. $420 for plaintiff for wages owed.
Pregnant Mom Photo Bust!-Plaintiff claims photographer/defendant cancelled after she paid hundreds for a pregnancy photo shoot. There is a dueling list of complaints from both sides, and Defendants suing for slander, (complaining to the Better Business Bureau, is not slander), wrote mean things on Facebook. JJ gives plaintiff $400. There was no written contract saying no refunds.
With Friends Like This...-Plaintiff rented a car for defendant (never ends well, does it?). Plaintiff suing sister-in-law for unauthorized rental car charges with her debit card. Defendant was in a car accident, and car was totaled. Defendant picked up plaintiff's kids from school a couple of times a week, with other errands. However, plaintiff says her kid's daycare is right behind the school, and they walk there, and don't need to be picked up.
Plaintiff claims that defendant didn't pick up her kids very often. Defendant claims she was going to stay off work until insurance fixed or paid for her car. Plaintiff was stupid enough to rent a car for defendant, and she would pay cash. The litigants went together to rent it, and defendant was a listed driver. Plaintiff claims the car was only rented for a week, and then Avis notified her that the car was overdue. Plaintiff claims defendant heifer, wanted her to extend the rental agreement, and wanted her debit card information, and plaintiff said no.
Plaintiff says the defendant kept the car for 30 days, instead of one week. Plaintiff picked up her own kids, ran her own errands, and didn't ever need the defendant's help.
$1341.16 for the plaintiff.
