Drinks, Baseball and a Bailout-(They both work at a ball park, that's where baseball comes in) Plaintiff suing ex-boyfriend defendant for a loan for a car of $1800, he says it's a gift, but paid her $300 back. Defendant dumped plaintiff right after the car purchase, and right after he was nailed for a D.U.I., and she bailed him out, and car was impounded. $1500 for plaintiff
Sibling Squatter-Plaintiff parents of five say defendant relative (brother of plaintiff husband) , his mother, and another relative skipped out on rent, and hoarded trash in their home. The plaintiffs moved to Montana for work, that didn't pan out, and moved back. Then plaintiffs found the rent hadn't been paid, and $2800 in utilities were unpaid. The mother quit her job, and moved out when the plaintiffs returned. Defendant brother claims he paid everything, but stopped paying rent. Colorado has squatters rights, at least when this case occurred, and brother exercised them. Since Cody the deadbeat brother finally moved out, the couple only rent the garage (I bet they're living in the house themselves). Cody was renting the garage for his car, and never paid. Cody also trashed the yard, the neighbor's yard, and the house, and they had to pay for cleaning. Plaintiffs get $800 unpaid rent. (The hallterview is hysterical, deadbeat renter Cody talks about how he owed nothing,
Hair Salon Freeloader-Plaintiff suing former landlord defendant over a hair salon lacking zoning permits. Plaintiff wanted plumbing repairs, the bathroom improved, outside lighting improved, and other things not in the lease. Plaintiff started improvements two months before taking possession of the salon space, and at the end of the third month plaintiff left. Plaintiff also didn't want to get electricity, and other utilities in her name, and claims the defendant should have paid. They both signed a lease, and it says that the building is zoned as a salon, plaintiff claims it wasn't zoned that way, but has zero proof. The plaintiffs did nothing to find out about zoning, but it was zoned commercial. They never gave the landlord any notice about any issues, except the letter saying the plaintiffs were moving out in a couple of weeks, before they had to start paying rent. Plaintiffs get nothing back, because they got three months free rent. Landlord alleges damages to the interior of the building, and put up additional outdoor lighting. Cases dismissed, and landlord keeps security deposit.
