Never had to deal with this before. In mid-December I was hired to cater a corporate holiday party being held in mid-January (200 guests). They requested to pay by check instead of cc. Their accounting department took a while to process the check, so I didn't receive and deposit it until last Friday. My bank just informed me that the client stopped payment. I've emailed and called the client, and the only response I've received is an email that my services have been canceled. Because of the size of this event & menu I turned away other business while I was waiting for their check. Should I take them to small claims court? I've missed out on profits from other events that I could have booked for the same day. ***On their signed contract: "Cancellations after 12/18/15 forfeit any monies paid... Any monies paid is acceptance of the terms of this proposal.". The check they stopped payment on was for $6k.
