A Coast Guard servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a consumer matter. The Coast Guardsman contracted with a wedding venue for June 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and orders from the military preventing him from attending large gatherings, the servicemember asked the venue to reschedule the wedding to next year, but the venue would only allow the date to be postponed until August 2020. The servicemember will not be allowed to attend the wedding on this date due to military orders. The venue requires a rescheduling fee of several thousand dollars to postpone the wedding to next year, on top of the thousands of dollars he has already paid for the wedding. He cannot afford the rescheduling fee, and would like help to negotiate a settlement with the venue.
