Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. Generally, you have six years to file a breach of contract action against someone. Wis. Stat. Ann. § 402.725 (2016); Wis. Stat. Ann. § 893.43 (2016). You may have specific rules regarding bringing an action like this in your contract so please read it carefully; otherwise, you'll have six years to do so.

What other questions did you have for me today?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
In Wisconsin, is it a shorter amount of time to file a breach suit because the public school is a government entity ?
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

To my understanding, whether they're a government entity is notwithstanding. Have you heard differently?

no.
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Understood. If that is the case, then their public agency status does not matter. They can sue and be sued like any other private party. Was there anything else I can help you with today?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
