  1. Best answer

    I'm reasonably sure that no judge would think that $10,000 is a reasonable measure of your damages for delaying a $450 check for 7 months. I'm also reasonably sure that suing a bank is very difficult especially if you tried to do it yourself.

    Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.

  2. Why would you deserve $10,000 over a $450 dispute? You have no right to sue the bank.
