Wei Xiang,
 
Thank you for your email reply. I agree that I will cap the fee and costs at $. I will later send you a retaining letter for the client to sign, and also provide you with the attorney's trust account information for your client to wire the payment.
 
I still need to figure out the exact pleadings and format of the documentation that we need to prepare, including the documents required from China. Now there are something that I think I should write in Chinese:
 
美国法院在决定是否承认外国判决时, 比较注重看被告是否经过有效送达,是否有合理机会到法庭应诉及提出陈述, 以及是否就法庭的管辖权有争议等. 如果法院判决书中明确写明这些情况 (诸如"被告经合法送达,本人或律师或委托人何时到庭应诉,就法院对该案的管辖权没有争议",等等),就会一目了然,这边会好办一些.但目前的判决书中没有这些确认性的词句.有可能更改吗?
 
Please let me know. I Will update you later on the development of this side.
 
Regards.

Mr Gao,

We received your email and had already hand over to Mr Sun.Mr Sun is satisfied with the progress now and he did contact with his client.

Regarding to the documentation to clarify both the defendant and plaintiff had a fair trial with due process, our clients are willingly to give their testimony to prove that, the whole procedure is legal and fair.Our concern onwards will be, how the format will the US Court required? Are there any formats we can follow?

Secondly, Mr Sun  and his client are agree with the legal fee which you mentioned last time, around USD 2000.But since we discuss with our client , the maximum amount they can afford for this lawsuit would be USD 3000, which means that this $3000 should include everything within this lawsuit.Regarding to the payment, we will pay in installment, $3000  will divide into 2 stage, 1st stage will be $1000, once you sign the letter of authorisation, we will soon TT the money into your bank a/c;the rest of amount will be pay once we get the judgement and been executed.

For the letter of authorisation , we hope that ,whether you have a sample or you can draft for us.

Many thanks.

Wei Xiang,
 
I did have a chance to discuss the issue the Deputy Commissioner (Judge) of St. Louis County. She indicated that since the stocks are the personal property, her probate committee (court) will not have jurisdiction over the issue. Therefore, the foreign judgement needs to be registered with the St. Louis County Circuit Court according to the Hague Convention procedure and requirement.
 
I did some preliminary research and found that Missouri has universal code in registration of a judgement of foreign country. A key evidence will be the due process issue that defendants had a fair change to present them in the court. I look through the judgement again and it does expressly state that both parties were in the hearing, although I believe both the plaintiff and the defendant were there in the court. I wonder if you can ask Mr. Sun to obtain some documentation clearly indicates that the defendants were properly served and they were in the court to argue their case.
 
I will need further dig out the detailed registration format in order to prepare for pleadings. In our region there are not many such cases so the procedure is not commonly used.
 
By the way, I have never mentioned to Mr. Sun about the legal fees and court costs in the proceedings since I did not have the information and did know how much time I have to spend on this case to solve it. Now, I think I have some idea and I estimate that my legal fee will be around $2,000 and the court costs should be additionally a few hundred dollars. I think Mr. Sun should advise his client about the costs to see if they would like to further pursue.
 
Also, down the road, we might also need a notarial copy of the judgement with English translation (wait until I figure out the exact requirement from the Circuit Court).
 
I will update with you once I get more concrete information.
 
 
Tony T. Gao

孙长刚律师,
 
最近一直在与本地法院接恰,上周五终于约见到继承庭首席法官,作了相当具体的交谈,我向他介绍了中国法院判决的大致内容及原,被告双方都正常出庭的证明. 法官也意识到遗产数额相对较小,恐不值正式的美国遗嘱检证程序, 所以他同意我可将中方法律文件译出,他看后可作出本地法院承认中国法院判决的文书, 这样SCOTTRAD可依照行事.
 
我知道此案已拖得很长, 当事人想必着急. 但这种遗产案 (当事人从未到过美国,财产是通过互联网取得,且资产所在地只是在拟定的交易所电子帐户中) 本地法院是第一次遇到. 所以几经交涉才愿意作出上述"特殊"处理. 希望当事人理解.


12/28/2009
邓x继承案转移SCOTTRADE帐户一事已有定论. 美国密苏里州圣路易郡法院遗产继承庭本月15日给SCOTTRADE公司发涵(见附件), 确认北京朝阳区法院2009年5818号民事判决应在本地给予完全的法律效力. SCOTTRADE 今也来信确认其法律部已悉,并嘱国际部遵照执行(详见下面英文部分).
 
请告知继承人还须作以下行为:
 
1. 邓x本人在SCOTTRADE已有帐户,请他确认是否要将他本人所继承的和由他监管的子女所继承的证劵转入他现有的帐户, 还是他要另开新帐户转入? 他是SCOTTRADE现有顾客, 他可直接与SCOTTRADE海外部联系.(联系人张伟民信息见下)
 
2. 继承人桑xx必须开设新帐户方能转入她所继承的现金及证劵. 请她到下列网址下载并填写两个申请表, 签字后将原件直接寄SCOTTRADE,并附上她的护照照片页或身份证影印件. http://chinese.scottrade.com/formscenter/PDF/CForApp_W8Exp.pdf
 
 
 
一并附上遗产帐户的最新报表给当事人. 如有问题请随时联系.
 
此致.

Subj: RE: Deceased Scottrade Accounts of Xiaojing Zhang No.88987828
 
Dear Attorney Gao,
I submitted the letter to our legal department and obtained approval that we can proceed to division of assets according to the court order.  
Per the Order of the Court, the cash and three securities DGC, HMG, INS are awarded to Sang Huizhen.
Securities ARTW and DCZI are awarded to Deng Jiean, securities GBR and OBCI are awarded to Deng Jiesi. Deng Hua shall have custody and control of all securities awarded to Deng Jiesi and Deng Jiean. All securities not previously mentioned in said account 88987828 are awarded to Deng Hua.
We will need your clients to establish new accounts to receive the assets. Our record indicates that Mr. Hua Deng does have an account with us. We want to know whether he plans to open another account or use the current account to receive the assets. Ms Huizhen Sang will need to open a new account with Scottrade. Please click the link below to download the “International Brokerage Account Application Form” and “W-8BEN form”. The two forms must be received by Scottrade in original.
We also need a photocopy of her passport or resident ID card.
 
Among the securities mentioned above, the following have undergone reorganization:
 
Old symbol         New symbol
DGC                      DGSE
DCZI                       GLDU
The new cash balance in the account is $6385.55. I am attaching the latest statement (11/2009) for your information.
 
According to the court order, we will transfer all cash and three securities DGSE, HMG, INS to the new account for Huizhen Sang. All the rest will be transferred to Mr Hua Deng’s account because he has custody and control to all securities awarded to Den Jiesi and Den Jiean.
 
Please let us know if you have any objections to the process.
Thank you,
 
二、按美国法院要求提供相关资料
                  北京市朝阳区人民法院
                       生效证明书
 
(2009)朝民证字第5818号
  原告桑xx与被告邓x、邓xx、邓xx继丞纠纷一案的(2009)朝民初字第5818号民事判决书已于2009年4月2日发生法律效力。原、被告及其委托代理律师均于开庭当日到庭应诉、答辩,双方对此案管辖权无争议,判决书及其他诉讼文书均合法送达被告。


特此证明。

北京市朝阳区人民法院
                                 2009年9月1日
 
       
 
姓名:(中)邓x                 (英)Deng Hua
生日日期:1973年4月9日                                                        民族:汉
身份证号:
地址:北京市西城区前门西大街x号
 
本人邓x在此宣誓,本文中所陈述的内容属实,并保证是事实,而且是事实的全部。
 
2009年3月3日,北京市朝阳区人民法院(下称“朝阳区法院”)公开审理我前妻张x遗产继承一案,本人以被告的身份出庭应诉,在此之前,我已经收到了朝阳区法院开庭的通知,并且被告知了相应的权利义务。
 
当天开庭的时间是下午两点,我按照法院指定的时间前往第15审判庭,出席此次审判。我还记得当时的主审法官是王辉法官,在开庭后不久,王法官就主动地、明确地告知我在法庭上的各项权利,并询问我是否对本案的管辖权提出异议,在经过充分的考虑后,我做出了“无异议”的明确意思表示,并示意已了解我本人在法庭上所享有的权利。
 
在审理期间,王法官严格按照法定程序依法进行审理,我在开庭过程中充分阐述自己意见,也得到了相应提出异议的机会。我认为,在本次审理当中,我的权利受到了充分且完整的保护。
 
2009年3月17号,朝阳区法院依法做出了判决,与此同时,我也在当日收到了判决书,并被告如对判决结果不服可在15日内向北京市第二中级人民法院上诉的权利。经过充分考虑后,我决定放弃上诉,接受朝阳区法院的判决,现此判决已生效,请求依照判决当中明晰的分割方式执行我前妻生前的遗产分割。
 
 
                                                                                                  当事人    :邓x
 
 
                                                                                                                       (签名)
                                                                                                               
2009年 9月 2号
 

三、收到代理律师提供的资料后,美国密苏里州圣路易郡法院遗产继承庭2009年12月15日给SCOTTRADE公司发涵(见附件), 确认北京朝阳区法院2009年5818号民事判决应在本地给予完全的法律效力.邓x继承在美国遗产一案圆满结束。
