Some interesting news:
I spoke to a co-worker whose husband is a lawyer...well it turns out SHE went to law school too!
I talked with her about some things and this is what I am going to do:
1. Sue him for the FULL 1200 miles = $576
2. Explain that according to him, one person was interested in 8 months, so 600 miles were not added for test drives as he stated. That would mean 34 people test drove it, and I only got ONE phone call from him.
3. Have a tape of the news story and /or transcript.
4. Add interest. Does anyone know how I can come up with an interest rate?
The worst case scenario is I wont get the FULL amount I'm suing him for. I have a better chance at going for more money.
I also thought that he probably won't even show to court, so if I ask for, say... $1000, and have a clear explanation why, I could automatically get the full $1000 since he cannot argue it.
I feel much better now. I'll keep you all updated as always.
