This does not answer the question. The Second CFI wsa full price and did NOT rely on any of the first CFI efforts...it was a completely clean slate. The issue is, the first CFI report, did not comply with any Colorado statuatory requirements.
I am not satisfied with the answer. I asked for a HIGHLY DETAILED RESPONSE.
Hi, and Welcome to JustAnswer,
My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am a licensed, practicing attorney and will help with your question
If a party is contracted to perform something pursuant to specifications, whether it is the other party's requirements, or the requirements of law, if that party does not perform pursuant to those requirements and such nonperformance makes his report unacceptable to the Court, and another individual must be paid to perform according to those specifications, then the first party who was engaged cannot be paid and such party cannot seek payment.
Please press "ACCEPT" so that I may receive credit for assisting you
BONUS is always appreciated
That is the only way I get paid
