What are the benefits to file a restricted donation

What are the benefits to file a restricted donation deduction for 2016 taxes and claiming it's restrictive but at the same time I'm filing a law suit possibly this Friday because the business did not comply to the restrictive donation.Am I hurting myself on the 2017 law suit by claiming a deduction on my 2016 taxes for this donation?I've sent a demand letter to return the items since they have not used the items for their designated purpose. I've given them over 16 months to open the project. Now I'm suing but I'm thinking I should also protect myself by claiming this donation to the IRS showing restrictions just don't know what that will do to the law suit requiring a compensation or returned Property. Value $27,000

My dad was a 51 shareholder in a new California corporation,

My dad was a 51 shareholder in a new California corporation, he used a buyout form to purchase for a 1 dollar the other 49 percent because the other shareholder had a difference of opinion on how the business was going to be operated. The corporation has no assets and was just recently incorporated.The other shareholder, the one that got bought out, put his wife, a cpa, as all officers of the corporation.I believe in California, my dad can make changes to the officers online ON ONE FORM and get a electronic copy of the changes. He wants to make himself the officers. Is that legal, since he is 100 shareholder? Does a non shareholder need to be the officers? Any concerns about the buyout?form:https://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/regulation_detail/SI-200.pdf

It's for that reason that we intend to file a complaint with the State Board of Accountancy.While we reserve the right to pursue our refund in small claims court at a later date, we will inform the aforementioned regulatory agency that we are not requesting that they investigate a fee dispute, but rather the dishonoring of a written agreement and the fabricating of an invoice.We have just been informed by The Board, that once a complaint is filed it becomes a permanent government record, and legally must be produced to any member of the public if requested. With that said, we wanted to give you an opportunity to refund our $DOLLAR AMOUNT, consistent with what we agreed upon.Sincerely,MY HUSBAND AND MY NAMEOUR COMPANY'S NAME
