Re: court house wont take pennies!
if someone wont accept legal tender the debt is voided.
 Quoting: theAK47ofSEX


Under the original Stamp and Currency Act that would be true, however under the Coinage Act of 1965 this no longer applies, business and gov't may reject any form of legal payment they wish to. So technically, You could be issued a fine, the courts could refuse all forms of payment and then claim you have failed to pay the fine, resulting in a warrant and arrest.

How's them cookies?

Screwy but true.

Ask to speak with her boss. At least you have 2500 little objects you could wipe at her head while you wait for the cops to show up.

Re: court house wont take pennies!
Just for the record, change is just that - legally, coins can't be used beyond $.99 total, unless the seller or creditor agrees. FRN's are different, since THEY are defined as legal tender - worthless paper deemed to have value. Creditors, for the most part, must accept them, but with the current state of the law, there are exceptions.

In real estate, cash is not readily accepted, except maybe to make up a small difference between cashier's checks and what's owed.
