Thank you for the information. I am happy to assist you.
Generally speaking and based only on the information contained in your post you may be able to bring an action against your friend for civil theft.
Civil theft is governed by Texas
§ 134.002. and is actionable if an individual has unlawfully appropriated property. If you are successful in your action, § 134.005. provides for a recovery of the money owned, damages of up to $1,000 and attorney's fees and costs.
I suggest that you retain an attorney to assist you in this matter. However, if you are unable to retain an attorney I you can obtain templates of the necessary forms at your local law library. The librarian can direct to the proper forms for civil theft.
I hope that I have been helpful.
