Hi All, Could really use some assistance right now. I started a LLC with two other partners to start a website. My best friend and i had the idea and went to someone who i thought was a family friend and he offered to pay for the site. We never developed an operating agreement and this partner has not contributed anything else besides the start up cash. We recently ran into differences that cannot be rectified. We offered to buy our partner for all of his expenses, which is only $500, but he is demanding $15,000. Is there anyway I can get him out without going through court? Thanks for your help.
