Legal Answers
Q. signed a coaching contract 2/16 but not able to pay due to illness caused by parasites and is being sued for remaining $
A: The terms of cancelling contained in the agreement are important. The terms about performing under the contract are also important. One would need to read those to see how they affect your case. However, you still may have the defense of frustration of purpose, meaning that an unforeseen event (your illness) had frustrated the purpose of the contract--that you receive coaching. This defense has problems, though, because you can wait until you recover from your illness and then receive the coaching. If you actually want to receive the coaching, then working it out so you receive the coaching when you are better may be a good solution. If the relationship has soured to the point where you cannot work with this person as your coach, then it might be a good idea to work out a settlement where you pay this person for the coaching you actually received and then call it even.
Q. I was in a car accident is 2012, come to find out I am being sued for 16,000 now. What do I do?
A: Hello. You need to defend against the lawsuit. If you were served with the lawsuit, then you have only a short amount of time to file a response with the court. You need to file a response to the lawsuit so you can defend yourself against the allegations and liability.
Q. Can a consumer sue a VOIP phone service provider for interfering with my ability to receive incoming phone calls?
A: Hello. Do you have a copy of the service agreement? You may possibly have a claim for breach of contracts, e.g., you promised to pay for voip service in exchange for their promise to provide service properly and let you keep your number if you changed service; you kept your promise, but they broke theirs. But you should check the service agreement to see if there's anything in there that lets them off the hook. You also should check if there is mandatory arbitration clause in there.
