Possibility to sue a US citizen in US court as an non US resident/citizen
I have a business in US California in which I hold 50% of the total shares, and the shareholder holding the other 50% is whom I would like to sue, I will refer to her as X in this letter.
The business has run for 5 years, recently X told me to buy the 50% shares she holds at an absurdly high price, after I refused, she has since shut off all my channels of monitoring the company activity. I believe she is transferring money away from the company by setting her salary at a ridiculously high price which I never agreed to.
She has refused to answer any of my calls and messages, the company accountant will not provide me any paperwork stating that I am not the company contact person.
I am neither a US citizen nor a US resident, X is a US citizen.
I would like to know if I can sue in the US court by hiring a US attorney to represent myself in court and what I can possibly sue her for. If I can not do so, can I transfer my shares to a US taxpayer (non-citizen) and have that person sue X?
