As much as we'd like to help, the lawsuit is a matter of public record through the courts and will have to be resolved that way. We recommend you talk with a consumer law attorney or Legal Aid, who may be able to help you at no cost. Just type "Legal Aid" + your city or county into a search engine. If they can't help you, ask them to suggest someone who can.

You could also try contacting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, but we doubt they will be able to provide the level of assistance you need.
