An Army servicemember seeks pro bono help with a consumer law problem involving a shipping company. The soldier shipped a vehicle to an acquaintance in his home country abroad. He prepaid to have it shipped, including customs fees. However, the company shipped the vehicle in a container with other customers’ vehicles who failed to pay customs fees; thus, the soldier’s paid vehicle cannot be released. The acquaintance brought a lawsuit against the soldier for the vehicle. To resolve this, the soldier seeks pro bono assistance to settle the problem with the shipping company.
