Some options: 1) Contact a Florida contract
trial lawyer. You can find them using an internet search: "Florida contract lawyer/attorney". You will want one who has experience in trial law as this could be a litigated case or a case that needs a judge's or juries' decision. 2) Get all of the contracts between you and the seller and between you and Xerox. The contract will in large part determine your rights. Much will depend upon the contract that you had with the seller (what was said about the Xerox machine, how important was that machine to the contract, what would happen under the contract in a default?). The contract is important in determining your rights, if this was a mutual mistake, then you might be able to escape some liability, if the Xerox machine was not an important part of the contract, then that is an additional problem. 3) See if you can negotiate an adequate resolution with seller and Xerox. If you can, then you will save yourself attorney fees. 4) Determine if the contracts have an ADR or an arbitration
clause. This means that if there is a contract dispute, that you have to follow a certain procedure--arbitration hearing or mediation hearing in order to settle the dispute. Some contracts will not allow you to sue the other side, they require an arbitration hearing between the parties. Best wishes.
