    With respect to interstate moving carriers [as opposed to intrastate carriers - i.e. from one point to another, entirely within the same state], your rights and remedies as a consumer and "shipper" of goods are severely limited by a Federal statute known as the Carmack Amendment [to the Interstate Commerce Act; 49 U.S.C §101 et. seq.]. Therefore, as is reflected in Rosenthal v. United Van Lines et al., 174 F.Supp.2d 1331 (ND GA, 2001), one of my reported cases on this precise issue [in other...

    As a quick follow-up to my previous response, it is also important to note the "Voluntary Payment Doctrine" [which again, like the vast majority of legal issues, is state law dependent], which generally holds that payments made by "mistake" [it gets very tricky and convoluted when you must distinguish between mistakes of law, fact, etc.] are not recoverable. And as with virtually any statute or legal principle, there are plenty of exceptions, and often the exceptions to a rule overshadow it....

    A thoroughly accurate answer depends significantly as to what state the property is in [and I realize you are in CA]. With that said, however, Georgia law requires most residential landlords (there are exceptions for those who own only a few units) to do a number of things both upon move-in and move-out, the failure to do any of which may [and usually will] result in the landlord's obligation to return the Security Deposit, among other ramifications. Below I have included an excerpt from a...

    I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but it sounds like there was a Judgment [Court Order] issued against (or entered into by consent) you - basically the only means of obtaining an enforceable [Post-Judgment] Garnishment - and you want to know if the amount of the Judgment [and in turn, the Garnishment] must be identical to the amount of the alleged debt as reflected in your Consumer Credit Report. If my understanding is basically correct, I would note the following (generally...

    I do agree that your question is somewhat confusing. Presumably you're talking about a default judgment that issued as a result of your failure to timely answer the Complaint. You may have been thinking that tender of the full amount due is a complete defense to an eviction/dispossessory proceeding - and under the right circumstances, it can be (once in any 12 month period). But you would have to file the proper protocol and ensure that the proper dismissal, etc. is timely filed. Merely...

    It's entirely dependent upon the jurisdiction [e.g. state, county, etc.] in which your matter is pending, among other things. So first and foremost, you need to provide all basic background information, including the location(s) of your residence and the [alleged] offense. Auden L. Grumet, Esq. The Law Office of Auden L.
