A couple of years back I filed consumer complaints against a company in Panama City, Florida that used deceptive practices that cost us a great deal of money. The case was settled in court a year and a half ago and resulted in both parties signing a "mutual release" specifically saying that both parties waive their rights to any claim that they have or could have had.
Now the business in once again starting legal action for these two year old complaints about a matter that was settled in court and signed off on by both parties to forever discharge all claims.
The complaints were truthful and allowed under the First Amendment. However, I did make an effort to have them removed and policy doesn't allow for removal, only rebuttals.
Isn't this double jeopardy?
I can't afford an attorney this time. Can I use my Fifth Amendment right to "remain silent" during all proceedings?
Isn't the business in breach of contract (release) for bringing legal action on matters already settled?
