Like many legal disputes, the situation you describe involves conflicting claims and evidence. In the abstract: yes, you could have a case. But practically speaking, I wouldn't go to court over being out $300. It isn't worth it. Resolve to never do business with that person again, you are once...Read more »

I suggest small claims court. It is inexpensive and you can recover your filing fee as well. The hearing is relatively informal so you do not have to know legal terminology. Remember "The People's Court" with Judge Wapner? Same concept. Bring your evidence and be ready to argue. There is a...Read more »
