Question:

I am in a dispute with my contractor. He claims I still owe him money, however I dispute it. I have told him many times to take me to beis din and he does not want to take me to court or to beis din. What is my obligation ?

Answer:

If you are sure that you do not owe him the money, you need not do anything. However, one should consult with a Dayan with the details of the case to discern as far as possible (in the voluntary absence of the claimant) if indeed his claim is unjustified.
