Q: How do I file a lawsuit against a company I paid to transfer a timeshare, but now refuses to answer phone calls
The company is headquartered in Indiana, I signed the contract in Michigan.
A: We don’t have enough information to determine which state has jurisdiction, and the proper venue for a suit. There may be diversity jurisdiction in federal court. Consult with an attorney to determine whether, and where, to file suit.
Kenneth V Zichi agrees with this answer
Mr Morris is right, and further without seeing the actual contract it is unclear if you even have the ability to sue ... many contracts contain mandatory arbitration clauses which might preclude a lawsuit. It may also be more expensive to arbitrate or sue than you're out at this point so any action may be ill advised.
There are many unanswered questions that impact your decisions here!
Get that contract to a local civil law attorney to determine what you next best course of action is. Good luck!
