Similar questions have been answered here before but my case is a bit different, hence opening up a new question.
- Client from Sweden sent me a contract stating it is governed by US laws. I am in India but I never signed and sent it back to him.
- We do have a NDA signed between us.
I am working with him for about 8 months. In last 3 months, most of his developers have quit and a framework we decided to try for project failed and that costed us 1 month. Even before using framework, I had well explained over chats that I do not have any experience with this framework and even I am not sure if this will solve our problem.
In last 1 month, over email mail I committed 40 hours/week but due to some reasons I failed to put that up that for 2 weeks and then got back to usual decided schedule.
All this time his requirements kept changing, new features kept adding up and previous ones kept getting modified. This is taking time to complete the project.
Now client wants to sue me for the delay in project that happened because of Framework we decided to try and failed. Also he wants to sue me for not working for 40hours/week in those 2 weeks.
My question is, does he stands a legal ground?
Our relations have really soured now and I want to move on. Shall I request him for money or how should I move ahead given amount is a hefty sum.
Thanks in Advance.
