    Hi everyone,

    Hopefully, I'm posting this in the correct location.

    A person at my wife’s study group stepped on our daughter's laptop, shattering the screen. He initially took responsibility and said will pay in full. After a month of dodging, stalling and saying he knew a guy that could fix it, he offered to pay for half of the cost for a cheaper laptop. When my wife said the replacement he suggested (that he would pay half for) doesn’t even meet minimum requirements for my daughter's school, he claimed my wife was harassing him and blocked her number.

    We have records of all communication, him taking responsibility, etc.

    Do we have any legal recourse for this? Contemplating small claims court but was looking for help if this was worth it.
