Since most of you are aware of my situation with my ex roommate, please be aware that suing someone doesn't always mean you get your money. I know found out once she goes to bankruptcy then its all over for me. She can have that debt released with chapter 7. Of course the best part is she was still on the lease till the end of the month and she cleaned me out of my stuff. The police did nothing, they let her do it. Its a civil matter. So now I can not get anything back and suing her won't do much either. But I will still try, so let this be a lesson, take everything valuable out of your house before you get divorced, kick your roommate out, or your gf or boyfriend. That way you don't lose everything. Oh and by the way, Most of the stuff she took was furniture so it was a bit difficult to take out of the house. But be warned, the law does nothing for you. If they are obstinate, they get to do whatever they want to do. You can be nice, you can save their job but still screw you all the way. Nice people finish last when it comes to the law.
