Today a freelancer assisted by Unscrewed won a judgment against a publisher for non-payment.
The defendant in this case didn't show. We won a default judgment for the plaintiff in full.
This is the first freelancer in which direct assistance by Unscrewed has resulted in a judgment for the plaintiff. We had one other assisted suit but the defendant declared bankruptcy before the trial.
We advised the freelancer as she tried to collect debt from three different publishers.
With one publisher we were able to mediate payment. The second, the defendant in this case was not willing to even work out the smallest of payment plans, forcing us to enter litigation. We have one other publisher we're waiting on but litigation might also be required.
Unscrewed gave advice, filled out & filed the needed paperwork, we covered the filing fees. We now will assist in collecting the judgment.
