I have been wrongfully accused of keeping the property of a company that I was the founder and CEO of. The company consisted of me, my ex-boyfriend and another friend. Two months ago, I had a falling out with my ex and, ever since, he has brought against me a number of false accusations leading to a civil suit. After filing a restraining order against him, they submitted a list of company equipments that were is my possession to be returned to them. This was done on May11 in presence of an Emeryville police officer. Amongst those items was a video camera and accessories that were originally purchased for $4,000. A few days later, I received an email from them asking for another item (a licensing contract) to be also returned to them. There was no mention of the video equipment missing. I believe that I am now accused of still possessing this equipment. I would like to know how to prove my innocence.
JA: Employment law
can be complex. But don't worry -- you're in good hands. Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
JA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: Pearl, this is a case regarding my friend, she has retained an attorney who, as we speak, is trying to find out from the Emeryville Police what exactly is on this list of alleged stolen items. Her attorney is only hired for pre-charge investigation and she is not sure if she will continue to use him after this initial phase.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Employment Lawyer should know?
Customer: Just that this is a case more related to a very angry ex who would like to make life miserable for her. Thank you in advance for any advice you may have for her.
