invoice payment: 45 days vs. 45 business days
I'm in MA; I provide editorial services to various clients, usually via emailed manuscript files. I have a signed contract with a client in NYC that states "invoices shall be paid within 45 days after receipt of invoice."
I'm currently owed a total of $35,000 in unpaid invoices. My client is now claiming that "45 days" means "45 business days", although the contract doesn't explicitly say so (as other contracts have over the course of 20 years in this business).
So, is there a legal definition of "day"? Can this client make this claim that "45 days" is the same, legally, as "45 business days"? By that reasoning, couldn't she say "45 days" is the same as "45 sunny days", or, for that matter, "45 Memorial Days"?
