Amy Bzura and Bradley Moss were looking forward to a happy marriage and long life together. The couple were set to marry this past October 29, but they broke off their engagement and cancelled their wedding and are now going to court, not to get married but to fight, as Moss is suing Bzura for the return of the $125,000 engagement ring he gave her.
As reported in the New York Post, the New York City-based couple had been dating for more than three years when Moss proposed to Bzura on Nov. 7, 2015, according to court documents. He proposed to her with a beautiful square emerald-cut diamond engagement ring which cost him $125,000.
After the wedding was called off, Moss demanded the return of the ring in early November. According to the court document, “the suit calls for the return of the ring, or its value in cash, with interest, along with punitive damages determined by the court.”
FindLaw, an online legal resource, wrote a post that relevant gift-giving laws are determined state by state, and most states have adopted a no-fault approach to determining if a betrothed must return an engagement ring. Which means the courts in these states don’t like to get caught up in the whys and wherefores:
“They view the relationship as private and therefore none of their business. If the engagement is broken, the giver gets the ring back, regardless of who or why.”
New York is one of these states so that could be bad news for Amy Bzura.
