Sure. The business was a "start-up" and I was brought in to run Marketing as their Chief Marketing Officer. Part of my agreement in writing was that I would communte from my home in PA until a second round of funding occurred. I took on those costs through my own credit cards. The total was 12K. The additional funding did not materialize.
I dropped items such as the business equipment and retained ownership of them then filed suit in Travis County Small Claims for just under 10K. After many delays and rescheduled hearings, the company's CEO who was listed as the point of contact for the summons, etc. didn't show up for the hearing. The judge issued a judgement in my favor (for way less then the amont btw, but apparently standard in TX small claims).
He ran the business from his home, removing all computers, equipment etc. from the offices so they could not be confiscated. He owed about 100K to various businesses but only myself and the marketing manager went through the court process to collect. He never declared bankruptcy
. He was funded in part by other companies but all relinquished claims to the business with the exception of Austin based company who owned a portion of the company in exchange for an early investment
Currently the site and its assets reside on servers rented from Google and have monetary value as we successfully gained traffic and PR exposure through out marketing efforts. I am interested in collecting the ownership of the URL and the parts of the website such as photography and content that make up the pages of the site.
My intention would be to run the site myself on my servers to regain the monies lost to the company.
Please ask any more specific information you may need to answer this question. Thanks. H
