My question involves injury or loss that occurred in the state of: New York
I was with a Major musical act in the 80's and had a Mega Hit-on a Mega CD in which I wrote 3 songs-and my agreement with the artist and his publishing company was 10% of all proceeds from the songs - which I agreed upon!! And signed the contracts also. But his Legal firm in New York called me sometime after I got my first royalty check and told me; they were - being the publishing company were going to pay me 5% of all album sales - which means that I would make more money!!! I said sure but didn't sign any contract to that decision-good thing I didn't because-The Artist died and now I have problems getting any kind of communication with the accounting firm. My contract was in perpetuity meaning till death!! Well he's gone and I am down here in Florida trying to figure out if I have to go to New York or can I sue them through The US District Court or some other legal means!! And I will have to file an Au Forma Pauperus form as I am not financially able to pay for this action!!! I will be suing The publishing company for 2 Million-the lawyer who I dealt with the entire time of this agreement for 2 Million - and his accounting firm for 2 Million!! Please help me with this matter!!!
