To see what he can do with the other partner. I doubt he can do anything at this point, who the hell knows.
I think he put down a certain amount in the contract, so can't he get some of his money back or something?
Without knowing the details, I'm gonna assume that whatever your father invested was subject to the same risk that all investments are subjected to.
Unless you suspect that your father's partners intentionally ****ed your dad over, or that his request for the tax advance was not justifiable under the agreed-upon terms, then I think the bottom line is that your father got a raw deal.
Yeah, no idea man.
Going to do insanity in a bit to get my mind off ****
The problem is when the business isn't doing well. Then you get hit with a triple-whammy: no percentage to claim, no funds to draw wages from, and the reality of a return-less investment.
This situation is normally when the major shareholders buys out, or screws the minor shareholder. If it's legal screwing, though, then it's a really raw deal.
It was a raw deal pretty much, so my dad is an idiot for going through with whatever he thought he was going to do.
