Those of you who've entered into the assignee/assignor agreement with me: I'll be forwarding you documentation consistently to use in this case and amendments to the witness list as well as amendments to the assignee list.

I am suing Wrox Press on every cause Wrox mentions in their General Release Document. Additionally, I am suing on their defrauding me of my commissions, awards and outstanding expense reports at the time of my termination, on malicious prosecution and on various and sundry other misdeeds, breaches of contract, deceptions, and personal injuries.

I have 2 years on some issues (such as wage disputes and personal injuries, 5 years on others (such as breach of express and implied contracts) to file, according to the Illinois Statutes of Limitation. June 23, 1999 is the start date of my termination, and I want to have this suit filed within the next few months. I have no intention of taking 2 years, but we are in legal land now thanks to the arrogant goons. You'll get a copy of the final suit as soon as it's filed, but will consistently receive drafts before that time.

According to 735ICLS 5/2-403(a), the assignee and owner of a nonnegotiable chose in action may sue on it in his or her own name.

For those of you still considering being an assignee, what follows is the basic agreement. If you have any problems or questions, contact me at -  Gale aka Jane Doe
