Dear Fred and Sally,Thank you for appointing me as an attorney to assist you inlegal actions that can be takenagainst Don Check Cashing, the church, Jane and what will be needed to proceed with thebankruptcyAs against DonOur legal defence will demonstrate that Don Check Cashing, neglected to act in a businesssensible standard. In spite of the fact that the checks were composed to him, the signatories onthe check were not the names recorded and it was also not your signature, is not genuine orforgery under section 1-201 under the Uniform Commercial Code[ CITATION USG5 \l 1033 ].Jane was bookkeeper for the organization. Both you and Sally were the approved signatories forthe organization. Jane produced a few checks payable to Don, to reimburse her bettingobligation. A party's entitlement to uphold a negotiable instrument is defended by extortion inthe factum, imitation, material change. In the event that Jane was not approved to sign on behalfof Fred and Sally, you won't be at risk for the check. Bank, will have explanations that the clientdoesn't advise the bank within specified time, so, bank cannot be obligated for the fabrication.ChurchAs of Church it will be difficult to prove Church’ malafide intent. Again, the Church was theholder in due course and had no knowledge as to the forgery of check.

Jane has also violated fiduciary duties tobusiness, by embezzlements of funds and also fabricating statements, so she can be sued for thebreach of fiduciary duty in the Court of Law and claim of damages is a plausible option.BankruptcyThe available forms of bankruptcy are outlined here, where in Liquidation, individuals give upnon-exempt assets and in reorganization under Chapter 11[ CITATION USG3 \l 1033 ],businesses are nothing but the restructured debt where debts are repaid with retention of assetsand some creditors gets paid in full with interest.
