A: A Kansas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. It sounds like you're making a case for something along the lines of misrepresentation. But in these settings, the other side could argue that there was a misunderstanding as to what was said, or what was meant. You could look into a consult with a local attorney to discuss in greater detail, but it might just be less costly to explore other vendors. Good luck
