Well, here's my two cents worth of "editing" advice.In August 2019, we saw an advertisement on facebook marketplace (saved by screenshot) listed by the defendant. It stated that a “modern midcentury womb chair” he was selling was “Brand: DWR” [Design Within Reach].
On August 30, we saw and liked the chair, and because
we trustedof the defendant’s repeated references toassertions that the chair was a DWR, bought it, and took it home. When we tried to find this model of the womb chair in DWR and could not. A representative at DWR later confirmed that DWR never sold this model of chair.
In subsequent written communication (downloaded) the defendant repeatedly misrepresented the chair as having been bought at DWR, although he didn’t “have [the receipt] anymore.”
We agreed to purchase the chair because it was represented by the seller as a used DWR/Knoll Womb Chair. Our agreement with the defendant was to pay $900 and he would sell us a Womb Chair, specifically bought at DWR.
What was sold and what we purchased instead, however, was a used chair that was factually not an authentic DWR/Knoll Womb Chair.
We trusted the false advertising and the fraudulent misrepresentation by the defendant.We ask for a full refund and to give the defendant back his chair.
You use the word "we" a lot. Are there two Plaintiffs or just one? If it's just you change "we" to "I."
Womb Chair (instead of womb chair). Treat it as a name brand.
Note my other corrections. Eliminate the "We trusted" business. Makes you come across as petulant.
You had a contract to buy an authentic DWR Womb Chair. The defendant breached that contract by selling you a fake. It's the contract and the breach that you emphasize in court and provide your evidence.
I seem to recall you mentioning a written statement from the DWR rep. That might not be admissible. At least if the Defendant is smart enough to object to it because the witness is not present for cross examination. Without your witness testifying in court all you have is your sayso that it's a knockoff. And that might not be good enough.
