Legal Question in Criminal Law in Mississippi

Sale of property while being held as a security for bankruptcy

I purchased a car from my nephew Oct. 2002. My nephew had purchased the car Sept. 2002 from the origninal owner. The problem began when I attempted to contact the original owner requesting the title. I was then told that the car was part of their bankruptcy and they would be getting the title in Dec. 2002. I agreed to wait until Dec. 2002. I then contacted them Dec. 2002 and was told it would be Feb. 2003....Then Feb. 2003 was told April 1, 2003. I have spent money on repair work on this car. What are my options as far as

1) Letter notifying them that I want the title by 5pm 04/01/03 or W H A T

What can I do to keep the vehicle and get the title OR return the vehicle and get ALL the money I have put in it PLUS the aggravation they have caused me?

Get your money back from your nephew. Without legal title, your nephew is in no position to transfer the title to a car. In point of fact, I doubt your nephew could claim ownership to the car without ever having possessed the title.
