Just as my credit has cleaned up considerable, out pops a blast from the past. As I have written in a earlier post, about 4 years ago I was in financial shambles. I was dating this guy at the time, who insisted on helping me financially to alleviate some stress in my live so I could focus more on the relationship. He had given 2 checks. This was in 1999. Unfortunately, about 8 months later the relationship did not work out and just now his is trying to sue me for the money he gave me as a gift, and the cost of various gifts if gave me thru out the relationship, such as birthday gifts and Christmas gifts. In the legal complaint, he is stating that the money was a loan and the gifts were things I asked him to buy for me with the promise of repayment. I am shocked to hear this from him now, 2 years after the relationship ended. My question to the board is this... 1) Can he obtain a judgment for this? 2) Legally, the fact that he presented me with 2 checks, does this imply a contractual obligation. 3) We live in different states. He filed in the state he resides in, not the state I reside in. Is this under the correct jurisdiction? I know this is more personal information than we are use to on this board, but I am very upset about this and hope that the members on this board can provide me with some useful information. Thank you.
