Hello, I will be assisting you
You do have a "case" against your former partner
How much did you pay for the product? What are you planning to do with the product?
you could sell / return the inventory and if you sell / return at a loss you could "ask" your partner (or sue in court) to cover the deficiency
if you can sell the good at a profit then you should claim that the entire profit is yours
do you have any email / sms exchnages between you and your former partner?
excellent. emails and sms are in effect written agreements... that would evidence your partnership
realistically, do you think you will be able to sell the goods?
at a profit?
You could take the matter to small claims court and bring as evidence the email and SMSs and demand $3500
you would give your partner 1/2 of the goods and that would be it
the key for you is to put together the evidence where the two of you discuss the partnership
witnesses and written evidence are the best ways to prove your case
I trust this answered your question
