    Not that any of what happened made sense on their part but the only idk logical reason I can think of is they knew they’d never be able to serve you since you’re out of state so they wanted to get you in front of a judge ASAP.

    If I were you I would do my due diligence and find an attorney that is connected to that community. That will go along way in your civil suit.
    Clinton1978 and smokey12 Thank this.

    We had an attorney that hated the city I worked for with a passion. We certainly were not a fan of his at all either. On the other hand he knew the local politics and could exploit those weaknesses. Like Army 91W says, it would be to your advantage if you can find a loca lawyerl to take the case..
    Clinton1978 Thanks this.

    Hope you get paid but surprised your lawyer authorize you talking about the case at all on truckers forum before the settlement is closed. Not wise imo
    Grouch Thanks this.

    Personally, I would contact Paul (opie) Taylor at Truckers Justice Center.

    It makes sense that they shouldnt be able to legally detain you. A store cant detain you either. Verizon tried to detain me because I returned their phone. Seriously. He said, you cant leave. And at first I was agreeable because I'm kind of a sheeple like that. Then I got mad and said. Wait a minute. Yes. Yes I can leave and I'm leaving. Then I walked out and he tried to stop me and I said, BYE, SEE LEAVING, Waving as I left . I was FURIOUS. Detain me? I think not. Call the police then. I think you should win. Imagine the implications at shipper and receivers that detain and provide no bathrooms or water. Ridiculous
    Clinton1978 Thanks this.
