Time to give a little bit of context for how I got frozen out. Three founders: Moshe Pritsker, Nikita Bernstein, and Klaus Korak. Moshe has the idea. Nikita joins to build. Klaus joins to fund after initial traction.
First briefly about each founder, and then what had happened.
So, since Fung Wah and Lucky Star are both suspended, discovered some new services.

Some of you noticed that the link to the email exchange was down in the last post. My bad – it was an issue with Google Apps. The link is back up. Enjoy!

I promised to write a blog post about what was supposed to be our shareholder meeting. So here it goes: the meeting didn’t happen. Or rather, Fitzpatrick and Myers from Davis Malm showed up and made for an awesome movie scene that is Facebook + Tarantino – blood & cussing. Cast:

Judge: (to Fitzpatrick) Seems like he isn’t going away, being a 30% shareholder. And, as you see, he learns.
The hearing for my lawsuit with Moshe regarding access to books and records of the Corporation will be on May 29th, 2013 at 2pm in room 610 at the Middlesex Superior Court in Woburn. For those interested, the docket number is MICV2012-03183C, although I doubt that it will be available to the public before the hearing, since the judge may have the docket for review. If you’d like access, just ping me and I’ll make the documents available.
Anyway, let’s give this a shot in the spirit of fighting commentators. The following is to be read out loud… fast… with expression:
