where can I file a suit, and how about the money invested in case they do not want to acknowledge my interest in the corporation
You would be suing on the agreement made for the take over of the restaurant. You will not be able to recover for your investment as that is not what the agreement was. I trust that this agreement is in writing but even if not you should be able to sue on the agreement made. You are suing for breach of contract or fraud in the inducement to enter into a contract they never intended to fulfill.
where do i file this complaint
The complaint would be filed in the Supreme Court in the county where the restaurant is located. If you are in midtown Manhattan that court would be atXXXXXdowntown.
ok, thank you
