I hired a marine contractor in Rhode Island to build a pair of centerboards for my boat ($12k). They were delivered 3 months late and didn't fit. I was very clear about the dimensions, yet the builder's designer altered the shape without consulting me. They've admitted fault in emails and in person, apologized, yet won't make the situation better. They offered a refund if I pay shipping charges to/from, customs and excise, and any damages. I don't feel I should pay $2k out of pocket and end up with nothing. What do I do to get justice? Report them to the Better Business Bureau? Hire a lawyer? Go to court or arbitration? Say mean things about them and buy a voodoo doll? Am I entitled to damages beyond the $12k? Any advice welcome.
What was the one Supreme Court case from 1994 to 1997 that had Rehnquist, Stevens, Souter, Ginsburg, and Breyer in the majority? It was also the only one from that time period, I believe, that didn't have O'Connor or Kennedy in the majority. [more inside]

Where can I find California court records by case number or name search? I'm especially interested in Orange County and Contra Costa counties. I've searched online but can't seem to find a state based online site to look all this up.
Are there any good resources for searching United States Supreme Court Cases by which law was being challanged? Has the SC ever said a law banning interracial marriage is unconstitutional and on what grounds? (Hopefully an answers to the first question would allow me to answer the second on my own.)
