What does "in or affecting commerce" mean? Legally speaking of course. If you could please ask husband I would be eternally grateful to you. by the way, he wouldnt want to come on down here to try a case would he? He would get paid! My state awards treble damages to include attorney fees. I cant find a lawyer to take this on because I cant pay up front. My case is air tight too. We just managed to get the stupid car into a mechanic and found out the engine is completely seized up. No hope without a new engine. I am basically screwed. I can probably do small claims court by myself but that means this dealer gets over on me for over 3 grand plus all the insurance I have paid for the past 11 months plus all my other costs and inconveniences. I am so mad. Everyone is mad at me because I really should have been smarter than to buy from this guy but I was so tired at the end of the day that I didnt realize I was even at this dealer because it was in a different town plus I was relying on Billy to be of some help. That sure backfired on me. I dont make good decisions when I am exhausted. Anyway...if you could find out what that legal term means it would help me. I just dont think I am up for going into superior court on my own even if it is allowed. I dont feel smart enough at the moment. I know if I dont file every paper exactly right they can throw it out and no one will give me all the actual papers I need nor will they tell me what they are. Sigh. I dont have time for law school.
