Legal Question

Asked on: 9/18/11, 2:47 pm

Nov 09 I lent a SGT in my unit $1500 with the promise that he would pay back $1700 within a year. He used 500 to add on to a trade-in for a downpayment, Then lent the other 1000 to a close friend for his downpayment. During the next year I pestered him about starting installments but he prefered to give it too me all at once. When the year was up he asked for an extension untill his taxes came back. But by the time his taxes came back he had moved to a new duty station in Colorado. I have the recipt for the withdrawl of $1500 and a small IOU he signed saying he borrowed 1500 and will pay 1700. I his friend who got the 1000 is the only witness. Do I have enough to take him to court and get my money back? Will I have to go to Colorado to take him to court? Is it better to wait untill I get out of the Army to go to court?
