No I had a work order defining the deliverables.
I'm replying by typing part of the letter my lawyer wrote to the mediator ...
I Breach of Contract
Plaintiffs provided services for which the Chamber did not pay; unilaterally and without authorization or permission, removed the plaintiffs from the [Chamber's website] listing, thereby resulting in the removal from the Linkedin connection, and prevented plaintiffs' recognition as website developer, all without justification.
II Breach of Good Faith and Fair Dealing
The Chamber was under a duty of good faith and fair dealing in its relationship and transactions with plaintiffs and breached its duties of good faith and fair dealing by failing to provide agreed-upon compensation and related benefits. The Chamber breached its duties of good faith and fair dealing by contracting with another business to provide for services that plaintiffs were providing.
III quantum meruit
Plaintiffs provided website creation, as well as programming of the website, design to make the website interactive. The Chamber was aware of the plaintiffs' work and consented to the project. The plaintiffs reasonably expected to be paid for the services provided as well as receive notice and credit for the work performed in bringing the website to completion.
IV Unjust Enrichment
The Chamber received the benefit of plaintiffs' services in providing website creation and design elements without compensation plaintiffs for the value of these services... [re the other firm]
V Negligent Misrepresentation
[sorry hands are getting tired just going to type the titles, let me know if you need more]
VII Tortious Interference with Advantageous Business Relations
IX (there is no VIII) Violation of RSA 358-A
Any reasonable jury will find them guilty, the paper trail is absolute. But the lawyer for the other side says if they lose in court they'll declare bankruptcy. I have to spend another $5k to $10k in court to get maybe my original $1700. I guess I agree they're probably bluffing. I am thinking of writing to the newspapers -- I did this for principle, not for money, but I never expected to be out so much money before we even got to trial.
Good idea. I will talk to him about that.
