The plaintiff claims she stored valuable items in the basement of her friend’s house, and then the defendant decided to throw them out. She is suing for part of her belongings’ value. The defendant claims she promised to hold onto five or six boxes for the plaintiff, but she ended up leaving more than 20 boxes. After six months of keeping the abandoned boxes in her house, she threw them out, and thus she doesn’t owe money. The defendant is countersuing for storage, lost wages, and defamation of character.
