comment Terminating a freelance contract before completion
I'm doing this job as an Individual. So technically I would be liable for loss of earnings etc... The £70k is basically fictitious used as a scare tactic. Its a combination of potential earnings AND everyone's salaries... Which is clearly irrelevant! The lawyer's advice isn't costing ME anything. So I'm fine in that respect. There are no termination terms in the "contract". It's an incredibly loose "this by this date, X to do the front end/gfx". That's really it!

comment Terminating a freelance contract before completion
Working because of the legal threat. They don't presently have the cashflow to pay. However, their argument is that if it were delivered on time, they WOULD have the cash flow to be paying. So it would be on my to make the argument that the overrun wasn't down to me and I'm due money because of someone else's mistakes. They'd also make the argument that they're not happy with the site so why should the pay the remainder of the fixed build amount.

Payment was split over month by month... Received the first 4 payments on time perfectly... Nothing for 3+ months. Hence the £3k+ owed.

comment Organising staggered user story in Scrum
Thanks for the TF related comment. I've done a bit of research around their concept of "Features". It seems they're a reasonable way to group Stories that will occur over multiple sprints. I've added the initial requirements as 4 separate stories within 1 feature "Open content from a variety of sources".

I'll definitely mention it, It's just the case of how exactly. I don't want to appear as if I could have malicious intent in any way.
