I need help to sue General Contractor.
We contracted a General Contractor to build our home.
He abandoned the job halfway through, messed up the work, and walked away with a lot of my money. At all stages he only used unlicensed workers and he didn't carry Workmans Comp at all.
I now want to sue him on the basis that he was improperly licensed due to not having Comp which is a condition of being licensed in CA.
And, in CA, since this means an automatic license suspension I then want to demand that he pays back all cash that I gave him.
If there are any lawyers who understand and have experience of this aspect of CA law, (B&P 725, B&P 7031, B&P 7152.2), I'd like to hear from you.
