Legal Answers
606 Questions Answered
Q. Mailing a legitimate form of serving in TN?
A: Regular mail for a summons is not valid. It needs to be certified where the post office will deliver it and make you sign for it. If you fail to appear the court may grant a judgment of default, even if it is bad service. Hire local counsel to review the summons and help you make a determination and give you options.
Q. I was served a federal subpoena to appear in court 09/23/2022 as a witness in a criminal case. Is it liable?
A: You'd be wise to call the attorney that issued the subpoena and have a discussion about it.
Q. I inherited a 33 year old Bass Boat. I sold it. now the guy wants his money back. what is my legal position
A: Sounds like its his problem now. He had an opportunity to inspect it and it doesn't sound like you concealed the defect. Hopefully your bill of sale says "as is" or with no warranties - even if it doesn't from your brief facts I'd say he wouldn't have a claim against you. Doesn't mean to say he couldn't sue you, but I don't think he'd be successful. If you wind up getting sued or having problems, consult local counsel.
