Q. Would it be advisable to reach out to a lawyer now to submit a motion to quash, or wait until a default judgment?
A: I can't help but feel that you are going in the wrong direction. A motion to quash etc. is nothing more than fancy dance moves that do not win the lawsuit. It gives you extra time to file an answer or other response to the complaint. That's all it does for you. Are you going to waste time and money on hiring a lawyer to do that? Eventually, this may still go to trial. Do you owe the money? You should be worried about that.
Q. My landlord entered my apartment without notice. He has the key. I was home and got very scared. What can I do about it?
A: Fire protection is a justifiable reason for him to enter. I'll assume he had the necessary battery and installed it during the incident.

You are being unreasonable.

I agree that it could have been handled better, but that does not mean it was handled in a way that is unacceptable or legally actionable.
Q. What if custom order was not made as discussed?
A: You have the couch and the store has not collected much money. Hard to believe they would deliver it without getting paid in full. But, the store had the couch made as per the measurements on the receipt. In my opinion, a court will not blame them.

So, you too have problems. The receipt is the contract. If the store followed the measurements on the receipt, I think the problem falls squarely into your own lap.

If you were in court, the judge would probably instruct both sides to step outside the courtroom and see if you can reach a compromise, and if not, let the court know and the judge would then rule.

You did not say how far off the measurements are. An inch, a foot, or what?

I suggest you submit a new question after you know what the store's position is. ... Read More
