Public Negotiation

PeopleClaim public mediations with co-plaintiffs are similar to class actions except they're resolved with the help of our community of conflict resolution professionals.

Public mediations with co-plaintiffs may be resolved globally — one offer to all parties — or individually via party-to-party negotiation with each separate claim.

While the goal is to help you find the shortest distance between a problem and its resolution, unresolved public mediations may be referred for formal legal represenatation and class action.

I was incarcerated on 01/09/2014 on a criminal charge. My people got intouch with American Bail Bonds to post my bond. I asked Frank from american bail Bonds to make my bond. My family brought him $5000 cash. I asked him to make sure that i didnt have and more holds or anything and he said no before making my bond. Once my family gave him the money Frank called me and said that i had a hold. Notice after my family gave him the money. I asked him could they get their money back and he said that he would come talk to me. After trying to contact Frank for over two weeks after he said that he would come see me. He started not answering my calls as well as my people calls. All i want is atleast some of my peoples money back. Cause the contract states that the bond company was securing my release from custody. How is you securing my release when i never got out. Even though the charges were DISMISSED. This is just not right.

    small claims lawsuits are under $150 so if you can spend $5000 to get out, then surely you can spend $150 to get $10,000? – File a small claim or Justice lawsuit against the bonding company for $10,000 for Unfair Business Practices, fraud, misrepresentation of facts and intent to defraud the family for personal gain. I'm certain that the bonding agent knew that there were additional "Holds" that would not allow you the plaintiff to be released even after posting bail in this case. You would have to gather proof by researching any warrants issued prior to the arrest that you posted bond on. Check with the law authority that requested the HOLD and get information pertaining to the dates and times the gold was placed against you. Remember: Most HOLDS are only assigned when an arrested party is in custody, which means the bonding company has full knowledge of your outstanding cases it holds, but took your money by fraud for failure to disclose facts to defraud the family. If you have cleared up your cases and holds, this would be of greatest importance to you to presue since it's a very winnable case, if you can gather just a little evidence to support your claim that the bonding company defrauded you with prior knowledge that you were not going to be released because if holds.
