I am getting sued by my garbage company (for my business). I'm hoping someone can help me understand if this termination clause from their contract will help my case. DEFAULT, TERMINATION. If, During the Term, either party shall be in breach of or default under any provision of this Agreement ("Default"), the other party may, at its option, (i)suspend its performance until such default is corrected and the non-defaulting party has been fully compensated for any loss resulting from such a fault, or (ii)terminate this Agreement, provided, however, that no termination shall be effective until the complaining party has given written notice of a Default to the other party and the other party has failed to cure such Default within ten (10) days of such notice (with respect to a failure to pay) or within thirty (30) days (with respect to all other breaches or defaults). In the event that Customer fails to pay Company or fails to perform any other obligation under this Agreement, Customer shall pay, in addition to the amounts due, any and all costs incurred by Company as a result of any referral by Company to an attorney. Notice of termination shall be in writing and sent by certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested at the addresses set forth on the reverse side. Long story short, they terminated my service for non-payment. I wasn't paying them because they were missing pick ups and still charging me. They never notified me of the termination in writing as described above. They simply picked up the trash container and left. If this clause does help me what is my next step? Should I just go to court and argue it? Should I speak with the opposing council and ask for a copy of this termination letter? Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide me with this matter.
