Fraud and Misrepresentation
Falsehood is seemingly everywhere. More than two thousand years ago, the Greek philosopher, Diogenes, is said to have walked through the streets carrying a lamp in the daytime claiming to be looking for an honest man. Fraud takes many forms. You relied upon what they told you, but what they said turned out to be untrue. Or, maybe you believe they did not tell you important facts that they knew; facts that would have changed your mind. Promises were not honored; agreements were not kept. What can you do? Do you have a broken contract? Or, worse, was fraud committed? What are your rights and remedies? If someone claims you defrauded them, what defenses do you have?
Unlike recovering for a broken contract, winning a fraud claim often depends upon proving someone's state of mind. What did they know, and when did they know it? What did they intend?
