CIVIL MATTER

Plaintiff

v.

Defendant

Robbie Benedict and Laurel Burke were roomates that are now in dispute over a "missed program". They have decided to settle their dispute with Pieces.

Pieces: So you are not the best  of channel buddies are you?
Mr. Benedict: Look, being in charge I asked Ms. Burke to set up the following things, I don't see why this was so difficult.
Pieces: A child could do this, so what seems to be the problem?
Mr. Benedict: Ms. Burke was extremely incompetent, so much that nothing else got done. I went to view the whole thing and nothing was there.
Pieces: Lesson learned I suppose that next time you will do your own programming.
Mr. Benedict: It was at that point our relationship began to sour, so I told her to move on.
Pieces: Ms. Burke do you have anything to add?
Ms. Burke: He treated me like a slave on wheels and had me moving myself around in more ways than one. Mr. Benedict was very demanding and dependent on me.
Pieces; And the relationship eventually ended because you were unable to record something he wanted to watch.
Ms. Burke: It was not as simple as recording a TV show. I worked for Mr. Benedict and we also lived together. I was doing everything he wanted me to do and then some. Mr. Benedict supposedly runs a small computer programming business that I wrote most of the programs for without pay and I also cleaned, prepared meals, and ran errands for him as well.
Pieces: While you were doing all of this what was Mr. Benedict doing?
Ms. Burke: He claimed to to getting new clients, as for his reason for being on the road so often.
Pieces: Mr. Benedict must have had clients, if he didn't why in the world would he have asked you to do the programming for him. You're making it sound that he just likes to play pretend a lot and that he stays out literally driving nowhere. 
Ms. Burke: That's how he does business, if you get my drift.
Mr. Benedict: Because of her I lost valuable business and salary which was when I informed her about her drift.
Pieces: I will return with one, a decision that is!

ANALYSIS:

Mr. Benedict is a small business owner who employed Laurel Burke to assist him as a programmer for his company, she was to also do household duties in exchange for food and rent. The relationship went fine until Ms. Burke found that Mr. Benedict rarely left money for her to pay the bills for rent, food ect,. Ms. Burke would contact Mr. Benedict while he was on the road so he could send money to pay for these things. Mr. Benedict blames Ms. Burke for the loss of income because she was unable to fulfill her job as a programmer to bring in enough income. Ms. Burke says she did several jobs worth a substantial amount of money, which would have held them over for a while. Ms. Burke questioned Mr. Benedict about the payments he recieved from clients as he denied recieving monies from them. Ms Burke was eventually terminated, but wants what was owed to her for the programming work that she did  appx. $2,100. Mr. Benedict says that Ms. Burke earned her fair share by what little she did in exchange for food and rent so he owes her nothing else and says that he has no money to pay her.

Pieces: Mr. Benedict, what does that little "invoice" inside of you say?

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED, that Mr. Benedict pay Ms. Burke the $2,100 for the work that she completed while she worked for him.
