Thanks so much for choosing this forum to pose your important legal question. I will do my best to give you some honest and accurate guidance as I answer your question.
"Can I sue a company that invested 125k with for keeping the money 6 months after the term of the investment with no interest paid?" First of all, please allow me to say I am genuinely sorry for your predicament. I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX soon look brighter for you. To address your direct question, yes you can absolutely sue under the circumstances you have described. These events constitute a rather classic breach of contract in addition to various tort law business claims. Given the amount of money at stake here, your first step should be to confer with local legal counsel without delay. For a fairly modest fee of $50, you could schedule a consultation with a business litigation attorney through the North Carolina Lawyer Referral Service. Frankly, you absolutely need legal representation in taking on an entity such as this, especially in light of the conduct to date. If you absolutely must proceed as a pro se (self-represented) litigant, then there are a number of standardized forms available to the public free of charge as promulgated by the North Carolina Court System. Realistically, however, I truly would urge you to make speaking with a local lawyer in person your very first step.
