I borrowed a family member $5,000 about 25 years ago. I threw out the records I had kept because I thought I would never collect this debt. He is about to win a lawsuit. Is there a way I can claim this money from him?

We are a -haul trucking company with our own semi-truck

We are a long-haul trucking company with our own semi-truck repair shop. We make repairs to the owner operators' semi-trucks for thousands of dollars at a time. Little by little they pay us back. However, sometimes they leave our trucking company and they don't pay their repair bills. We currently have several such truck owners. The amounts they owe us range between $15K and $40K per truck. I know that filing liens against their trucks would be a complex process involving submitting complicated paperwork and closely following various deadlines. I need to find a reputable company whose employees would follow all rules and regulations and file proper IL Labor and Storage liens on the trucks. I found numerous Commercial Debt Collection companies online (attorneys), however they all said they didn't file liens.

I have a bunch of different clients with analytical

Hi,I have a bunch of different clients with analytical data (traffic metrics and financial info) in one account. I can give full access to a departing client so they can see everything for their account, add and delete users and do everything they want, but they cannot delete me. (It's just a function of how these accounts are built.) They are clamoring for the highest level access which would allow them to delete me, and I would lose access to my other client data. And they would also have access to several dozen client's data. What I want to know is what laws would that violate, them having access to private financial data? I need to explain this to them in a way that makes it clear it's not something they want.
