    Ok, this is going to be difficult to explain but I will do my best. I reside in Minnesota. I purchased a quick serve restaurant from a company and ran it for a year. For reasons I wont go into at this time, we walked away from the business. Now the previous owner, whom I still owed money to, tried suing me to recoup his money and lost due to committing perjury. During the lawsuit the previous owner was "operating the restaurant for me" as stated in the PA. My question is this. I believe that since he lost the suit, and I am unable to operate said restaurant in said location anymore that I would be able to reclaim all of the assets of the restaurant and do with them what I want...including selling them to pay off other debt and that I could claim the amount of money incurred during the lawsuit(more than what I owed) could be counted against the amount I owed him. Is that the case?
