I'm having trouble getting payment from client. I need

I'm having trouble getting payment from client. I need advice on what actions I can take concerning the Intellectual Property of the content and what I can do to seek payments from an unresponsive client that owes money.Detailed explanationI'm a freelance animator in NC and was contracted by another animator who lives in Illinois to make 3D models for a product that a large company sells. Me and him have worked on projects before and he's very forgetful about payments, but this is the first time I've had troubles like this with him.The company that hired him is now using my 3D models on tv, their website, and other products to promote their brand. Meanwhile, it's been almost 5 months since I sent out my invoice for the project and after months of asking where the payment is and the animator who hired me tells me last month he already spent the money he was paid from the large company and he doesn't know when he can get me the money. So naturally I'm pretty ticked off about the situation and want a way to get my money as soon as possible, which means I want to light a fire under this guy's ass until he gives me what is owed.Can I contact the large company that is using my IP and say "hey, you can't use my IP unless I say so, because I haven't been paid. I can sue"? Can I take the animator to court for the unpaid total? It's roughly $5k.Thanks,Daniel

What is the name of my court system? I'm signing an NDA. I live in the city of Escondido, California in the county of San Diego. And the other company is in Oregon. I just want to know the names of the courts where I live that would fit in the two blank names in the following sentence. (I'm not asking for legal advise on this sentence of anything.)Each party shall forebear from filing a claim in any other county or jurisdiction and expressly submits itself to the personal jurisdiction of (i) if commenced by Ormed, Inc., in the State Circuit Court of Oregon for the County of Multnomah, or, if applicable, in the Federal District Court for the District of Oregon, and, if necessary, their respective corresponding appellate courts or (ii) if commenced by Peregrine LLC in the Court of __________ or, if applicable, in the ________________, and, if necessary, their respective corresponding appellate courts.

Law Educator, Esq. ONLY., ( The regular with second appeal.)

Law Educator, Esq. ONLY.,( The regular with second appeal.)It is well established law that courts have intrinsic powers, independent of statutory provisions authorizing the opening of judgments and to vacate any judgment obtained by fraud, duress or mutual mistake. In re Salvatore P., 74 Conn. App. 23, 27, 812 A.2d 70 (2002), cert. denied, 262 Conn. 934, 815 A.2d 135 (2003).I am now thinking that using this case law above is not appropriate for my case because I did not file a motion to vacate the previous case that plaintiff conspired with the attorney to fabricate invoices, falsify entries and tampered with evidences to win the judgmentSince I did not file motion to vacate which I will file later, I can not use that case law because the judge in the new judgment on this appeal could not have vacated the previous judgment. All she could have done was to look at the new evidences and if they actually committed fraud on that case, then she can deny the attorney fees because of their fraudulent misconducts. what do you think?

Law Educator, Esq. ONLY(This is the regular with second appeal)Good day, or good night. it is 1.30 AMI got this below from practice book. it seems like what I need to file is a motion to review. The practice book states that if a motion for stay is filed to the appellate Court, Appellate clerk will forward it to the trial Court, but if a stay is terminated, then a motion for review should be filed to the appellate Court. what do you think?The sole remedy of any party desiring the court to review an order concerning a stay of execution shall be by motion for review under Section 66-6. Execution of an order of the court terminating a stay of execution shall be stayed for ten days from the issuance of notice of the order, and if a motion for review is filed within that period, the order shall be stayed pending decision of the motion, unless the court having appellate jurisdiction rules otherwise

Hi Again,I need some clarification again, please in regards ***** ***** name filing for an LLC. I read via the SCC site that if a name is ***** ***** name of the owner it doesn't need to be filed.
