I own all of my late husband's copyrights
and the ones we shared on our join projects. His estranged daughter was left out of the will (because of their bad relationship and her questionable lifestyle, would be my guess). So, she has sued me for the estate for past 3 years massively doubling my grief, destroying my health, and crippling all else.
One of her lost cases, a false accusation that I was not the wife, ended in June 1 2015 via a Summary Judgement in my favor, I am of course the wife.
However, based on that cunning stunt in 2013, her lawyer succeeded in pushing a "temporary personal rep' into the estate to stall me as the only executor and heir, named in the will.
After that, this bogus person began emptying all my accounts on the guise of needing her 'salary' but has never produced a single invoice. She also lied to the IRS, which I am pursuing. And she then went after my royalties
at a large publishing house in MI. Thought they knew me and were favorable to me, eventually they were bullied into yielding to a court order that the bogus lawyer obtained in MA. Instead of putting my royalties on hold in escrow, they gave them all to her and she personally spent them on herself!!!!!
Recently, the copyright transfer papers have finally come back to me from a two year delay and I now OWN all the COPYRIGHTS. I had a MI lawyer at Legal Shield contact the MI publisher with a copy of the Summary Judgement mentioned above. And a demand to return to me the royalties and forbid any more release of current or future royalties to this MA bogus rep.
The bogus MA rep, then threatened the MI Pubisher, with a law suit and re asserted the court order, ignoring my new status as full owner of the copyright and the MA Summary Jugement as the 'confirmed wife' status now.
In November $8,000 more dollars of my royalty money is scheduled to be released to this bogus rep again.
How do I get a restraining order to stop this?
Do I do it in MA or MI?
They have frozen ALL of my accounts and driven me into abject poverty and I just survived a horrible cancer surgery. Nothing in my accounts to fight with and they are stealing more.
What can I do?
