My question involves business law in the state of: Website Ownership-Partner Agreement.
one year ago, I had met a lady on line that I became close friends with, and she asked me to be co-owner of her website to help build her site. I said yes, and I became co-owner. About a week later she asked if we could bring in a third person for extra help, and I said that was fine. For a year the three of us have worked very to build this website. The website is not making to much money currently, but it will one day. They decided to with drawl my partnership without doing their home work, and locked me out of every thing we have, including turning off my cell phone. I did not do any thing wrong, and the letter of with drawl is all lies. I think maybe they both agree on what they want, and I am always the one that wants to take my time to make decisions, do home work, check the BBB, LOL !! They hate that about me. They are just alike, make dumb decisions in 60 seconds or less, and does not do research. After they locked me out of all of our accounts, banned my IP from our website, and sent me a email of with drawl partnership they decide to hire an Attorney. Well they now know that they were wrong, and I am back in. Now I need advice on what I should do ? I want to keep the website. I worked way to hard for them to just decide they do not want me any more now that the site is about to make money. I am seeking an Attorney now, but I need to know what my options are ? I had no clue that they felt like this, and they admitted to planning this for months. We have a signed contract that does not give them the right to exclude a partner. After doing some investigating I am learning she could very well be a scammer. She also removed funds from our business account to her private account, and she lied saying she was paying for advertising, but we knew she stole the money. We decided to leave that alone for the sake of the website at the time. Could that be a breach in contract ? This lady has convinced the other owner to do this to me, and I really think she was brain washed, and on her way to being scammed when they are done with me. How can I do some research on this person, or what should I do ? I am sure this lady has a serious past.
