Q. what is required to prove in order to recover damages for breach of contract
A: Greetings. It appears you may be asking two questions: (1) what is required to prove damages in a breach of contract action or (2) what is required to prove a breach of contract so that you may be awarded damages. This response attempts to answer the first question. For a plaintiff to prove damages in a breach of contract, they must show that they suffered some kind of monetary harm. In New York, damages are categorized as (a) reliance damages, (b) restitution damages, and (c) expectation damages. A plaintiff is entitled to seek whichever one is the greatest. Reliance damages are those pecuniary losses that the plaintiff suffered because they relied on the contract's performance. Restitution damages are those pecuniary losses that the plaintiff suffered because they paid the other party for the contract's performance. Finally, expectation damages are those pecuniary losses that the plaintiff suffered because they did not get what they bargained for. All three types must be supported with testimonial evidence or documents revealing the amounts lost. Please note, even if a plaintiff suffered no monetary harm, they could still sue for breach of contract but their damages would be limited to "nominal damages", which is usually $1. Please contact a good New York lawyer for further information. Good luck.
Q. I need advice on pursuing a breach of contract by a modular home contractor.
A: Greetings. It appears you are unhappy with the progress of your modular home construction. In New York, disputes between modular home vendors and buyers are governed by their written agreement. The agreement will have provisions concerning performance, time, and, often, disputes, which may have to be arbitrated or mediated. Please take your agreement to a good New York attorney so that it can be reviewed and what if any next steps can be taken.
Q. Is the operation agreement of an LLC binding if no one has signed it? And can you then vote a member out if it isn't?
A: Greetings, it appears your LLC is having a member dispute. Member disputes are common in LLCs, indeed in any type of group venture. Member disputes must be resolved for the sake of the business. If the business is being driven to the ground because of the dispute however then dissolution may be the only answer. If your LLC is a NY LLC, dissolution is not an easy matter to obtain judicially. You must show that the business is truly incapable of operating to obtain a dissolution through a judge. If the business is capable of operating, then a judicial dissolution will not be possible. One may want to instead explore obtaining consent or a buy out, among other options. One should also look at the operating agreement itself, which may have provisions both to resolve disputes and concerning dissolution. Please speak with a good New York attorney for more information. Good luck.
