I was sued for not paying for a service that i proved was

I was sued for not paying for a service that i proved was not performed. When i rented my farm to a new farmer, the previous farmer gave in an invoice for $10,000 for fertilizer that they said they applied to my farm a few months before. I asked for an invoice from the person that applied it. They produced an invoice that was forged by themselves. They obtained a blank invoice and filled in the information. I got an affidavit from the man they said applied it. He made an affavdavit saying he did not do the work. He also stated that when he comforted the farmer he was told they were just messing with me and intended to drop the lawsuit at some point. After 9 months they did drop the suit and paid my attorney fees. So I am out no,money but I suffered a lot of vanquish and time was spent getting soil samples and tracking down the applicator. I bought a drone to take pictures of my field to prove there was no tires tracks. I know this is complicated to understand if you are not familiar with agriculture. Ohio state university interpreted my lab result on the soil sample and determined that my soil was in critical condition for nutrients. The farmer had farmed my farm for 20 years and obviously never applied fertilizer or very little. I trusted them to keep my soil in good condition. This farmer pulled this a me scam on an 82by war old man who,paid them. They dropped the lawsuit but I feel like they should be more accountable for their actions. My brother was named on the lawsuit with me. One month after the suit was giled, he had open heart surgery and died 3 months later...never knowing the outcome of the lawsuit, all this has been stressful for me and my deceased brother, can I contact the county prosecutor who can charge them with a crime like theft by deception. Or can I sue them civally?

We are part of a Fastpitch softball organization in Ohio.

We are part of a Fastpitch softball organization in Ohio. This was are 2nd year. Before membership money was taken this year. A majority decided we should create a board. A board was created. No bylaws, constitution or mission statement ever was introduced to be voted on. The president had a EIN # for our team account attached to his Ss#. The plans were to follow through to get a non profit status. We meet monthly. End of the season we have a surplus of money. Most likely shouldn't have had. Numerous attempts were made and motions to spend money on professional lessons for the athletes, cpa and legal services all voted down by the majority of the board. Season is over. The majority removed money from our account $8.000.00 as a result of a majority meeting. The majority meeting failed to notify 3 members of the board of the meeting. They then created a new account and removed the president as a signer on the account. The prosecutors office launched a investigation, calling the act theft by deception. The investigation is on going. The day the money was removed from the account. The president found out that the Vice President and treasurer were involved. He removed and relieved them from their positions as board members through group text of the entire board. The Vice President admits that since it was out in the open now, they planned on asking for his resignation on Mondays scheduled board meeting. The removal of the funds happened on the Thursday before the Monday's meeting.Upon arriving at the bank, the president was told by the bank manager the treasure told them they had a official meeting and that he had been removed. This is why the bank moved the money. The president was able to show text confirmation that in fact he had not been removed and that they planned on doing it 4 days from now on Monday.1)My question is would the board be governors under Ohio law in absence of bylaws?2)Was there meeting legal when they didn't notify all the board members3) was the removal of the funds theft by deception?4) is the removal of Vice President and treasurer deemed legal and justified giving what happened.5) is it legal to have a special meeting about financials? Seeing how this was the only outcome from the special meeting.6) if you have a special meeting are you required to turn in meeting minutes? If so what is the time frame allowed?
