Reading on your site about a suspended LLC and I see that

Reading on your site about a suspended LLC and I see that they cannot defend themselves again litigation. But would it be possible for them to revive their status, if they were suspended with the FTB, before it goes to small claims court, and therefore defend themselves?JA: Can you tell me what state the LLC is registered in?Customer: CAJA: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?Customer: not yet. I also found out that they were suspended 4 days before we signed the contract. so could it be possible they did not know at the time of the contract they were suspended and use that as a defense? But they continued to collect money much later tooJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's about it for now

I have a document which a bank states is a legitimate

I have a document which a bank states is a legitimate assignment of collateral document of a loan for a coop. I find it peculiar in that there is a variety of information that seems to be missing and I question it. I think this is falsified and invalid.I. First there is no assignor address in the first sentence " KNOW ALL MEN BY THESE PRESENTS, that , whose address isII. Second there is no assignee name or address after it states : "transfer and set over unto:"III. Third where it states this ('Assignee') its successors and assigns, whose address is: NO NAME or Address is givenIV. No stock certificate, or certificate number sited laterV. The signatory seems really odd. I looked up Robert. G. Hall and he is related to Bayview but* How is he signing for Empire and or M& T Bank* How do I know that M & T Bank was formerly Empire of America FSB* How can a bank transfer a loan which was already transferred from Empire Savings Bank to RTC, DeutcheBank, and GMAC before Bayview allegedly became owner of it?* Does this seem questionable to you and how can I verify this?I have attached the document for viewing below:

Thanks, I am not sure where to start. I started a non-profit

Thanks, ***** ***** not sure where to start. I started a non-profit and paid for the set-up personally. As well as raised over 90% of the funds that have come in and have been one of the principals from the very start and fully active. There have been some conflicts with one of the members. The member I gave this to. Anyway, he has been using the funds for pet projects but that is not my biggest concern. I have a client that raised $20,000.00 and was late in getting the money over but he has been late 3 years in a row. Our non-profit had no vested interest and no money out of pocket but last week one of the board members called this person and threatened him with a lawsuit if a check was not sent immediately. Well, it was, my question is would I have any legal ability to blow the whistle on the operations behind teh scenes. They are opperating in Tennessee and have been for the last 3 years and have not registered and my office and company is still directly affiliated with the non profit and in addition to this. I own 100% the trademark to the non-profit and the logo as well as the URL. This argument had me tell them I won't work under this kind of leadership and I was also independently told that if I remotely associate myself with the non-profit that I will have heck to pay. The guy I gave this to is the person behind this, we served together in Desert Storm and well, he has not held a job I believe in 12+ years. Also, I personally handled the structuring of the organization. I own three different companies in two different countries, not that this really applies to this but I wanted to give you a little about me that I understand the legal side a bit. In short, I want to serve them with a cease and desist and do it quite aggressive. I don't want any money for this, not in the least, just that I have given 5 years of my time and the organization is not being run under the guidelines and people are taking advantage of the funds to personally finance personal events. With being active the entire time, responsible for raising over 90% of the funds over the years, 100% ownership of the trademark, logo and URL. Do I have the ability to put a halt to the organization and independently make changes?JA: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?Customer: Colorado, out of my office in LittletonJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: yes, they have filed the taxes on time but they have been conducting business out of Tennessee for the last three years without registering in that state and have been 100% conducting business in that state.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, but we all served together in a special operations unit during desert storm and Mike Paul has gotten a little rogue and most of the board members have stepped down or just quit. I was going to do the same but I have the most time and personal money out of pocket in this. In a perfect world, I would be able to put a halt to this if I have the legal right and change the board to a more conducive group. Mike Paul has even neglected adhering by the rules regarding rotating every 3 years and independently assumed the position of President and Executive Director. There is just too much put into this to sit back and watch it implode
