What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state? NJ

There are multiple parties involved in this case.

1. X (one of the biggest companies in IT) has a client A (in TX) and "A" need a consultant to work for them.
2. X's partner (B, based in NJ) got the assignment from X to find a consultant to work for A.
3. B found consultant C (NY based company) for this job and C has been working for A for a while.
4. C wants to take a vacation for three weeks and C found James to cover him for this period.
5. James acts as an independent contractor and signed a contract with C's company. His salary will be paid by C with all these in place: signed timesheets (by manager) and money received from X. (X should pay the consultant through issuing check through --> B --> C --> James). C sent an e-mail to James to confirm that his travel expense (NJ--TX) will be covered even under an unbillable situation.
6. When James went TX to work for A, A didn't provide a badge for James. When James requested his own badge, the A's manager said that it would take longer than 3 weeks for him to get the badge and by that time he should have finished his temp. job. Therefore, it was not necessary. Actually, the whole working team knew James was using C's badge (from co-worker to manager). Every body was joking and laughing him when James mentioned this to them on the very first day of working. No one though it was an issue. So James used C's badge to get in.
7. James was caught by the security due to using C's badge on the third week of the job. "A" had set James "clean" after a few day's investigation. The police was called at the time of the incident and the police said it was no issue and set him free right on the spot.
8. "A" cancelled all the working assignments with X due to this incident. X lost big monkey because of that.
9. James had X's on-site manager's signatures for the first two weeks timesheet (40 hr/week) and travel expense reports. Since this catch, he didn't get his third week signature at all since X didn't allow James to contact anyone in X's company after this incident. X refused to pay a penny. Therefore, C didn't pay James so far. The travel expense didn't get reimbursed yet. The total is around $10,000.

We highly appreciate your advices.

I couldn't wade through all that. By the second point, I was confused about who was who. A, B, C, X :confused:

Is there any way to simplify this?
