He can sue for whatever he wants. The judge decides what he would be awarded if he were to win.

You have heard about the woman who sued McDonalds when she spilled her own coffee? She was awarded $2.7mil + $160,000 in medical bills. The judge later reduced it to a confidential settlement upon appeal.

As much as I'd like to follow along and get updates, I would really suggest contacting a mod to have this thread deleted, just to cover all your bases.
Best of luck - what an awful situation to be in..

Welcome to "I refuse to be held accountable for my dumb actions, I blame you."

Unfortunately there are some folks new to the horse world that think that buying a horse is like buying a microwave at WalMart, if it doesn't work right- take it back, rather than doing the homework and finding a knowledgeable horse to aid in the search for daughters "my little pony".
I wish you the best of luck.

Yes, you can put any number on a frivalous law suit, but his nubmers are baseless.

This shister is trying to intimidate you with big numbers.

There is no pain and suffering involved.

Pain and suffering, loss of use, loss of income is where the big bucks come in.

I know you are not responding any more and that is good.

I just reread your OP, and if it were me I would just go get the horse and return the money minus trailering before the horse disappears. Hopefully the horse is not ruined. Could you possibly talk to the barn owner and find out if the horse is okay or get the real story.

Good luck!!

For inspiration read Bird's thread about the barn owner is keeping my horses hostage, the good guys do occasionally win.

NO NO NO!

No physical proximity - could escalate into assualt.

If she were to take the horse, he might say she stole it and expound the situation.

As was mentioned - get an attorney and first thing - draw up a cease and desist so he cannot harass you. Save all texts, e-mails and voice mails for the judge to see.
