Hi, I currently sub...

Hi, I currently sub lease office space in a existing business. I have nothing to do with that business and I have a completely seperate office. A court officer came into the building and seized the property of the other business in the building.. The court officer went into the building and knowing that I am a separate business took the money out of my office.. Is he allowed to do that?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

Michigan, Im osrry I should have mentioned that

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?

The owner of the the other business filed for Chapter 11 bankrupsy so they are giving him his belongings back however, the court officer says that he is entitled to his fees, which I understand is true.. but Is he allowed to take his fees from my business.. he went in after the bankrupsy was made and he was told to return the keys to us

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes, he is claiming that he wants to charge for storage fees, but he didnt have to move or store anything he just changed the lcks and locked the other business and my business out

Ok great, thank you so much, Im sorry one Final question. Im going to forward pretty much what you explained to me. Is there any legal action I can take against him for going through my belongings
You can complain his supervisor and pursue grievance. A lawyer letter from a local lawyer can be effective in several ways. It can avoid costly litigation and help bring about a settlement. It also helps organize the claim and if it goes to court shows the judge you tried in good faith to resolve it!
