Mesa, AZ asked in Contracts for California

Q: I paid a costume maker to create a fursuit. The maker has not created the costume in over two years. Where do I start?

Over two years ago I entered into an agreement in hopes of buying a fursuit. I paid the artist a sum of $2500. In tat time, she has failed to do any work on creating the suit itself and changed her T.O.S. I would like to get my money back, where do I start?

A: Did you have a written or oral agreement (contract)? Your contract is the important document in this transaction. If it was not written, you have two years to sue her from the date of breach. If it was written, you have 4. If you believe there was fraud involved, such as she never intended to do the work, you have 3 years to sue. The amount of money damages depends on whether you sue for fraud or contract, and how the failure to deliver the suit caused you to lose money. You should consult with a local attorney who can hear what happened and advise you on the best course of action as time is short.
