A deployed Navy servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a dispute of an informal agreement. The Sailor and the opposing party agreed, informally and primarily through text message and oral discussions, to trade vehicles and that each would title the new vehicle in their respective names. The parties traded vehicles, and the Sailor titled his new vehicle in his name shortly before he was deployed. The other party has since received several speeding tickets and unpaid tolls in the Sailor’s previous vehicle and has refused to change title to the vehicle. The Sailor seeks pro bono help to enforce the agreement.
