My ex-girlfriend threw away her engagement ring after we broke up. It cost $8,000 and my understanding is that in NY if the engagement is broken off for any reason, the ring must be returned. I took her to small claims court and an arbitrator heard the case. My ex didn't deny throwing the ring away. She merely gave the reason for breaking up (basically a dispute over the size of the wedding). She also claimed in her defense that I tried to patch things up for a while afterwards. I didn't see how any of that was relevant since I showed the arbitrator the receipt for the ring, and the fact that she threw it away was not in dispute. Yet the arbitrator ruled against me. Does anyone have any idea how I lost? More importantly, is there anything I can do about it?
