Dear expert, I am holding a certificate of restricted stock

Dear expert,I am holding a certificate of restricted stock market shares (please see attachment). Now I would like to remove the restriction and get the shares into my account. Unfortunately, the transfer agent argues that the removal is not possible because the company is not current on their filings and would need a legal opinion to remove the restriction.Is it correct that in this case, it is not possible to remove (the shares are still trading, the shares are exempted from registration with the SEC)? If so, which lawyer can I contact to get a legal opinion?Additional information: The company is called Nutrastar International, legal home state: Nevada, operations in China, shares are trading on OTCBB in the US, ticker NUIN.Please feel free to contact me for additional information.Thank you very much.Many regards,Daniel

FOR -BIZAW: Kindly re-read last question you answered for me

FOR RICHARD-BIZAW: Kindly re-read last question you answered for me for context as this relates to the same matter. Does a Canadian company have Nexus by virtue of doing business with U.S. customers and having a U.S. employee located in a U.S. state? If the employee with or without his employer's knowledge colluded/conspired with a 50% partner in a U.S. LLC that was a client of the Canadian company to destroy files on the LLC's hosting account, to block the other partner/officer from accessing files and features of the platform necessary for the LLC to conduct business and then unilaterally deleted the LLC's account in its entirety which destroyed valuable evidence on the server logs which would have identified who did what when -- can the Canadian company be sued and for what causes of action? Can the U.S. employee be sued and especially if he misled his employer about why these actions were taken?Now take into account that the Canadian company's TOS includes non-liability clauses and asserts thati t can cancel any account at any time for any reason in its unilateral discretion. While I recognize that this might protect them from a beach of contract claim, would it protect them from business interference, destruction of private property or evidence (the employee and likely the company knew the two partners were in a legal dispute and are now serving the offending partners separate business), collusion, economic/cyber sabotage, possibly conspiracy to commit these acts, etc?The jurisdiction clause of the TOS states that venue is in Canada. Under the circumstances or with nexus could this be changed to the U.S.? Or since the employee resides in the states could venue be changed to there?
