writeoff uncollected judgment (personal not business)

Hi Tax Gurus,

When building a house, I had to fire and subsequently sue a contractor for nonperformance after providing them with a substantial amount of money. I was awarded the money that I paid (almost 25K) but have not been able to collect after numerous attempts. sigh....

Am I able to write this off somehow? Theft? Anything?

Thanks for any insight you can provide.
