Customer Question

We have been in a partnership dispute for a few years. Unfortunately, we ended up with a court ordered receiver being put into our restaurant four moths ago to run the business. We discovered last month that the general manager assigned has been stealing from us almost on a daily basis for quite awhile. Since my two sons work within the business they managed to get quite a few pieces of documentation to prove it, including deposit slips that he changed, reducing the amount of cash going to be deposited into the account. We also had a written complaint from a waitress that he made a crude remark to and then gave her a $100.00 corp. check as a tip for going to staples for him. When the lawyers went to court to meet with the receiver and judge to give a financial report on the business my lawyers brought up these issues because we do not want this manager in our business. The judge refused to listen to the complaints or to look at the documents. All she wanted to know was how much money was in the bank account and the financial status of the business. We are stuck with a guy that is verbally abusing our help and ripping us off, but the judge wouldn't deal with any of it. Our lawyer was very frustrated with this. What can we do about this. We now have a thief running our business that is going to crucify my sons and the staff for complaining about him.We need help!

Was the receiver appointed pursuant to New York's CPLR 5228(a)?
