RE: [infoguys-list] Damaged bike case: your opinion wanted
- Its a 50-50 split ! For one, person X was so worried about the oil,means he
had a feeling something would go wrong and it did. And the neighbour should
pay,because of the oral agreemant. Oral agreemnet in small claims court is
as almost as good as a written agreement !
