I have a few different actors that are part of a bigger

I have a few different actors that are part of a bigger effort against me - and 1 of them has taken action and i want to get an injunction, in MA, to stop them from using my business name, my copyrighted i.p. (a book), at / as-the-basis-for - an event in early feb 2017.they took my customer information they stole from my online db, and they are using my physical tokens they converted to their own and will use them at the event. they are charging money for attending their event. these people had a lease with me to use my i.p. but it was terminated, and they're trying to steal my business, my 20-books, my trade secrets 9also being used by them), replicating my business and organizational structure 100% (they admitted it to 2 people), while libeling me among the industry.i want to get an injunction in MA to stop my terminated lease holder from using my i.p. etc. at an event in feb 2017.i live in nc, and one of the main actors, who send me letters of extortion (hand over your i.p. and your business or we'll sue you into the ground and take it).my question is, can i sue in nc courts against everyone of the 10 people involved and ask for an injunction against the MA event, or do i have to go to the MA District court and ask for an injunction to stop the event from running?I have 30 page complaint in draft form and 50 pages of exhibits proving the racketeering extortion conversion of leased property and libel activity against me over the last 2 years, and of the event being run and my i.p. being used, and with the same old business name of mine they used while under lease (was terminated in july 2016 for non royalty payment).where do i put in the complaint to stop them from running an actual event using my i.p. - MA or NC ?this is copyright infringement too - criminal since i have a valid copyright of the work being infringed on in commerce. does that require me top go to federal court in MA ?

Second opinion] - An employee of my bank told me that he

Second opinion] - An employee of my bank told me that he gave my SSN to criminals in the Washington, D.C. area where I live because he thought I had done something harmful to a friend of his. He said he did this 2 years ago and thought it was o.k. to tell me now because the Statute of Limitations had run. (He was mistaken; I didn't even know the name of the individual he mentioned.) He said they could ruin me financially and it didn't matter if I moved my account (which I will) because they could track me for the rest of my life. My understanding of the Statute of Limitations in general, not with respect to this issue, is that it begins to run when the aggrieved party learns about it. I just learned about it on December 15, 2016.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Washington, D.C. is where my account and the bank are based.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Since it just happened and I was at the bank on my way out of town for the Holidays, I have not yet returned home and this is my first opportunity to investigate the issue. i want to report it to all Federal Agencies that have jurisdiction over the bank as well as FBI as I assume this is a very serious crime. I may also want to sue the individual.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No--I would be very grateful for info on where to report this crime as well as a referral to a lawyer in D.C. who can advise me on how to proceed. Thank you very much! Grace

I live in California. I am not sure of the laws on this

I live in California. I am not sure of the laws on this topic. What I am concerned about is the definition of blackmail. My wife wants me to obey her orders limiting where to I should go and other things. She has taken away the keys to my car and won't let me have them back. There was a mistake I made 3 years ago. She says that if I don't obey her, she will send out a letter detailing the mistake that I made to my relatives. Would this be considered blackmail? This has been going on for a year. Or does there have to be money involved?

Question Is: A person I contracted with at an agreed upon

Question Is: A person I contracted with at an agreed upon rate/hr.... is now telling me I owe her a 50% rate/hr increase--- I had been paying her at agreed upon rate, and she had said nothing re: the increase. Now she is holding an artist's print of mine and another piece of personal property she was to repair UNTIL I pay her the new balance she says I owe her. Do I go to the police first? Do I go to small claims court? Would rather skip an expensive attorney to tell me I do it myself as above.
