My bf and his friend found a dog the guy asked my bf do u want the dog he said yes .We had the dog for about a month.His friend then said he found a flyer for the dog with a reward. So i took the dog back to the owner.His friend is now saying he wants half of the reward and if i don't he'll "sue"
You can be sued by anyone for anything at any time. However, in order to win, the friend would have to convince a court that there was an actual agreement to provide him with a share of the reward in exchange for providing the information about the flyer.
