Re: Legal Advice Needed- Employment/Contractual Law
First, I agree with Chili--you and your wife should consult with a lawyer licensed to practice in South Dakota.
Second, I agree with George Foster and his dad. If this was a West Virginia matter, and Company A came to me, wanting to retain me to file suit against your wife, I would respond by saying: "Are you crazy? Not only do you not have a case, file this suit and she may successfully counterclaim against you!" (I would probably be more diplomatic than that, but I sure wouldn't take the case based upon the set of facts you have presented.)
Again, I defer to the advice of a South Dakota lawyer---and this e-mail does not constitute the establishment of an attorney-client relationship---but based upon your representation of the facts, I expect that a SD lawyer will tell Company A to go pound sand.
