While here at the Construction Legal Center we focus on construction law and construction payment related questions, I'll try to provide a bit of helpful information below.

In Texas, the lien granted to a repair shop or individual repairer of motor vehicles is a "possessory lien" under Texas Property Code Sec. 70.001(a). This means that in order to have the advantages of the lien, the vehicle must be in the possession of the repairer. There are, however, provisions that allow for the repossession of the vehicle by the repairer in certain circumstances (generally when the care was released pursuant to purported payment that was stopped or otherwise didn't come through).

For the Nintendo Switch, there is a game called Mario Strikers: Battle League . With new equipment, items, and moves, it is the third game in the Mario Strikers series and the first one since Mario Strikers Charged, which came out more than 15 years ago. The game's multiplayer mode accommodates up to eight players. In the game's online Strikers Club mode, players can host clubs of up to 20 players and compete with other clubs to obtain points and move up the rankings. In addition, there are various cheats for Toon Blast that make the game's stages much tougher by adding barriers, unique objects, and other challenges. Therefore, in order to overcome these obstacles within the permitted number of moves and succeed, players will need to come up with innovative strategies.
