    Answered . I would report the matter to your insurance company and tell them your side of the story and they will deal with the matter and defend you if they cannot resolve it. It does not sound like his has a good case.

    Good luck.

    Answered . You listed this question under the "Bankruptcy" practice area. This is not a bankruptcy question. Do you have other debts/obligations or was this simply placed in the wrong section?

    The short answer to your question is yes.
