Case Dismissed for Servicemember in Afghanistan
An Air Force servicemember considered leaving the Air Force several years ago and planned to operate a bar/grill with family members. The corporation was established and he was the director. However, he decided to reenlist in the Air Force and resigned from the corporation. Thereafter, the business operator exhibited a sporting event without paying the required fees for commercial exhibition. A lawsuit was brought for over $100,000 in damages, and the servicemember learned that he was a party in the lawsuit while deployed in Afghanistan, and he was misinformed about a case settlement. The Military Pro Bono Project connected the servicemember to a volunteer attorney to help with this lawsuit. The attorney showed the court how the servicemember was not responsible for the alleged action, and the case was ultimately dismissed.
