Concord, NC asked in Business Law and Contracts for North Carolina

Q: Truck driving school in Charlotte NC stole pur money and misrepresented their contract.

My husband went to 160 Drive Academy in Charlotte NC we paid almost $5,000.00 out of pocket. the contact from the school states it is a 4 week class. My husband as been at this school for months and still has not graduated.

And had to pay an extra $1,200.00 dollars to the school. Which is not in the contract. We want to sue the school for fraud, misrepresentation, and I want to personal sue the school for keeping my husband out of work and putting me in debt because of the lose of income in my household. My husband told the school he wanted his money back and they refused to him his refund. This has caused a hardship on my family that has put a-lot of stress on me as his wife and not making enough to be able to afford our bills.

Can I sue for the lose time and income my husband would have been making?
