Junior Member
I am in California
I am a student, in college
I started martial arts membership 28th April. Was hit by a drunk driver, and totalled my vehicle. I had account frozen until my shoulder healed, which they did for 1 month, and then continued billing me. I was up to date on my payments, but had to send a cancellation notice with a 30 day notice. They charged me for 2 months at $125 a month, plus late charges, and added extra months too. They say they cannot process cancellation until the $300 plus is paid off. I am a student and can only make payments, but by the time I pay it off I will be back to owing them almost the same amount.
Does "impossiblity of performance" work in this case, to break the contract, since I could not use the membership there?
