Ok, to shorten an involved story, my girlfriend sold the liquor store she owned to another guy. He owes her quite a bit in inventory costs but is giving her the real runaround. First he said several bottles of liquor had expired and are no longer good, like $500 worth. Now he is saying many cartons of cigarettes have expired as well, I think a couple of thousand dollars worth. He is looking for a real substatial discount on the inventory costs of which he has yet to pay a cent. Now I don't think bottles of liquor expire do they unless maybe they are like twenty years old? What about cigarettes? I imagine they might become stale after a period of years so is there an expiration date on the carton?
Her lawyer says to make him to show the proof and I'm hoping she will listen to him but she needs the money towards another business she is buying and it's making her life and hence mine to a degree, totally miserable. I'm hoping she won't cave in. I think the guy she sold the store to is trying to weasel out of paying whatever he can because in addition to the inventory hassle, he paid a certain amount down to purchase the business itself and agreed to pay the rest in monthly installments but it took a lawyer's letter to get him to pay for the first two months installments.
