YOU file the forms...pay the fee...attend the hearing...and let other biz people in town know YOU are suing another biz person. She happens to be a GM of a local motel. If word were to get around that I filed a suit against a fellow motel manager...the other GMs would avoid doing business with ME.

Thanks for the "advice"....but I will ignore this and ferget about it.

***Apparently you haven't done much of "this" kind of business.***

Nope, in my area, the premium tv providers give them a real nice looking one every month.
For the smaller hotel/motels the pizza joints provide them with their exclusive ad (similar to the Pizza Hut one that you show on your site)
They don't go through a middle man such as yourself.

If the concept works in your area, great, and more power to you!

***Filing a suit against a local business person ain't gonna do much fer yer "image"***
I don't know about that, businesses sue other businesses every day and they continue to business with one another. I have worked for 3 diff law firms in my area ( at diff times) providing info on businesses that other business want to file a claim against.
If anything, I would think that it would have made this woman understand your are in business to make $ and are not going to play games.

That is your choice and as a business owner you can do what ever you wish.
I was simply providing you an alternative so you didn't have to go back to you clients and tell them that someone bowed out of the deal.

You stated that she was a GM which means she most likely has a boss above her that certainly wouldn't want to hear the GM signed a deal and pulled out later.

You most likely wouldn't even have to file papers or goto a hearing.
Simply by aggressively showing your cards, you could have had her honor her contract without doing anything except mentioning the possible outcome in which she could lose her job.

I would file the papers instead of going back to 5 paid clients and telling them that the deal may not work because I didn't hold my end of the bargain.
People in business sue other buinesses al the time, its part of the "game"

Like I said above, if you show your cards knowing she is only a GM, she may re-think her decision.
I would rather do no business than back down from a GM for fear word would get out that I tried to enforce a signed contract.

You can FERGET what ever you want, however this is sound business advice, plain and simple!.
Again,
Best of luck,
Jason
