What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? MA
Can one sue a municipality, or only individuals within the town government/structure in small claims? Are there any legal loopholes?
For background, I was hired to do a piece of contract work (under $2K), which I completed. I submitted a bill and they have ignored me completely. I have tried calling (they don't return calls) and have sent a demand letter (also ignored). I have a letter of intent to pay (the town assuming financial responsibility for payment for my services), as well as emails which indicate that I have successfully completed the service, and yet they will not pay.
Whom should I sue, and is there anything else I have to do before filing suit? It seems like a very clean case to me (I have loads of documentation), but I am wondering what they could possibly have up their sleeves if they are ignoring me.
Any help or advice would be most welcome.
