Dont worry Sccutler, I wasnt about to use your name in court or anything!
My cousins are also lawyers (in NY and Washington D.C.), and they have said that they would never practice law in Texas because of liability issues that are often brought in during cases. Thanks for your help everybody, I have decided on a plan of action...
1) Ask to see a copy of my leasing agreement
2) If there is not anything mentioned about cable services in the lease (one question, does anyone know if cable is considered a "utility") then I will ask them to not switch my apartment to Dish Network because of this issue.
3) If they refuse to allow me to keep ATT Broadband, I will ask them for a full refund of the purchase price, because I entered the leasing agreement with the understanding that I would recieve constant service of the local cable company, should I choose, which I did. I did not enter the agreement expecting a change to a satillite based network.
4) If they refuse that I will go to court (representing myself). Does anyone have an idea whether I can go to a judge (would I go to the city court or county court?) and ask for an injunction against the leasing company to keep them from switching companies?
Like I said though, thank you everyone for your help, and if someone can answer these questions I would really appreciate it.
