We broke up and she refuses to pay me back. I am suing her in small claims court (in CT). Her lawyer's response to the suit is "Plaintiff alleges an oral agreement to repay $3,657.50 as basis of claim. Special Defense: The Statute of Frauds states that any agreement for an amount in excess of $500 must be in writing".
I researched the CT State Statutes and Chapter 923 Statute of Frauds and it states in Sec. 52-550. Statute of frauds; written agreement or memorandum. (a) No civil action may be maintained in the following cases unless the agreement, or a memorandum of the agreement, is made in writing and signed by the party, or the agent of the party, to be charged: (1)...(2)...(6) upon any agreement for a loan in an amount which exceeds fifty thousand dollars. Which limit is right?
