Q: Is contract void if money were sent late to avoid litigation? Can litigation be persued?
Contractor sending my money back. I agreed to not sue, if I get back by a date. They are late paying. Can I forward litigating, even after settlement dollars sent late?
A: That depends on the provisions of your contract covering waivers of defaults, if any. If you are paid in full under the terms of the stip, even if late, there would be nothing to sue for unless there are some additional penalties outstanding. An attorney would have to review the terms of your agreement to determine your rights.
