    You may have a claim, but against the credit agencies and not the state. The state has the right to seek enforcement of the tax lien as long as it is outstanding. The issue appears to be the misreporting by one (or all three) of the credit bureaus. You must go to each of the bureaus (Experian, Equifax and Trans Union) and protest this issue appearing on your credit. However, you should first confirm it is there by having your credit report run. You can do this free by going to www....

    There are a few open questions in this situation. Was your brother placed in this position with a will or a trust? If this is a will, has the will been filed with the probate court? Please update your post with this information.

    It is difficult to tell from your description what events caused your employer to discharge you. As a general rule, Missouri is an employment at will state, which means that you may be terminated for any reason (or no reason at all) as long as that reason does not violate a written agreement, is discriminatory or is against public policy. You should contact an attorney so that you can explain your situation in greater detail to see if you have a claim to pursue.

    The difficult question in these matters is the cost of retaining an attorney versus the size of the debt. Many attorneys will require a significant deposit to enter their appearance in a matter like this because of the likelihood that he or she will only be able to collect the amount of the deposit. Unless the debt claimed exceeds five thousand dollars, it may not be worth retaining an attorney and attempting to negotiate with the creditor's attorney.

    Please keep in mind that this recommendation is based on a limited number of facts provided in your question. Additional information may be required, and additional facts may change this recommendation.  You should definitely talk to an attorney. You are correct in stating that the law protects people who complain about discrimination. The laws may be different depending on where the employer was located and where the decisions were made.

  8. I am accused of defamation and slander by a local dentist. He has accused of false statements that were not true.

    It sounds like there are several moving parts to your inquiry. First, it is not clear if you have actually been sued or if your dentist is threatening suit. Second, if you were sued for defamation, and your statements were that your dentist's were too expensive, then this is a matter of opinion and not actionable defamation. However, you may still be sued for tortious interference with a business, and those claims can get stickier. What also concerns me is the unnecessary publicizing of...

    I have to agree with my contemporaries in part on this matter. If there was no illegal motive in terminating you, then just terminating an employee for a false reason does not give you a basis to sue for wrongful termination. In Missouri, there are three ways that a termination can result in liability -- (1) the termination violates the terms of a written agreement; (2) discrimination due to membership in a protected class (race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, age over 40 and/or...

    Much of an answer to your question depends on the lease language. If the lease (which I will assume for these limited purposes does contain this provision) contains language stating that it will be terminated if you give sufficient notice and pay a penalty, then you should be released from any obligation. If, however, you talked to your landlord, made a verbal agreement, then acted on that agreement without getting anything in writing, you may have a serious problem. The key in this...
