Sounds to me like you're due some punitive damages as well. Certainly if I were on the jury.* Just in case you do decide to follow this course of action, suing the bastards, write down as much detail as you can and make sure you save all correspondence (both ways). Also, if by chance any other offers were in the que for you - or even close - there's some consequential damage you can go for.

I'm not sure whether it's better to threaten them with legal action if they don't pay up or just plain blind-side them with a letter from your attorney (solicitor ?) or the summons to appear in court. A really big financial demand may not only save you a day in court (although, if unemployed, WTF ?) but maybe give some of the jurors who've been similarly screwed, or know someone who has been, to sympathize.







* When called for jury duty I am never selected - once they discover a science/technical background they know emotional arguments won't win their case.
