Hi,I have a company that when we first set up we did not have a bank account. So for the first 2 months we used a domant account of our new partner (Tony Gould)
I and my partner (***** *****) own 60%, Tony Gould 16.5% ***** *****kely 16.5% (she is Tony Gould's partner) and James Lord 7%.
We had long been thinking that Tony Gould had been stealing
money from us in June 2015 we confronted him with this and he tried to justify where £17,000 had gone of the £29,000 we alleged was missing.
He justified that he gave ***** *****kely over £3700 towards car payments from October 2014 and April 2015.
In October 2015 we sacked Tony and Caroline for gross misconduct.
We started a civil case against ***** *****kely to recover the £3700 that Tony agreed he'd misappropriated and given to her.
The reason we didn't take any action against Tony is that he was being investigated by the police for fraud and theft.
When we went to court the judge told us that we we taking the wrong person to court. We then tried to get Tony added to the case and paid extra money, gave supporting evidence and did not hear anything further.
We have now heard that the judge ruled against us and did not add Tony to the case as we (nor them) were present.
We didn't get any notification of this case. We have written and emailed the court with no reply
We now have our case on 19th September when the judge is likely to tell us as he did in April that we're taking the wrong person to court.
What to do?
