A Marine Corps servicemember seeks pro bono assistance to defend a negligence lawsuit. When the servicemember was a teenager, he was uninsured and driving without a license when he rear ended another vehicle, causing very minor damage. He is now being sued for damages at what is believed to be an unreasonable amount for the actual damage to the vehicle. The Marine seeks assistance to avoid a potential default and unreasonable damage award.
