I can’t believe that 90 days have gone by! It seemed so long at the beginning, but I’ve been busy with work and play and horses and kids and well, you get the picture.
A few days before the end of the 90 days, just when I thought I was over this mess, my attorney called. He said that Dick had filed a lawsuit against me claiming breach of contract because I had fired him before he could finish the house.
This, of course, is not true. He quit, leaving the house unfinished, but anyone can sue anyone for anything it seems, so we are going to court. He has hired an attorney who basically is a bill collector. My attorney is one of the best in Utah, so I am not sure how that will work out. Probably not well for Dick.
A part of me is scared to death but a part of me is just plain angry and a little excited to get my day in court.
I am waiting for a copy of the lawsuit that my attorney is going to mail to me, but in the meantime, I have to hire some experts to examine the house carefully. It probably isn’t a bad idea, he messed up so much of the visible stuff, that I probably should take a better look at the nuts and bolts (literally) so down the road I don’t have problems.
One of my neighbors is a contractor and he has a friend who is really knowledgeable about this kind of thing, so I am supposed to have breakfast with the two of them Saturday.
Just in case you were wondering, Dick is in for the biggest *.ss kicking of his life!
