    You should have an attorney follow up on enforcement of the award I take it by the nature of your question that you don't have an attorney if you have an attorney the award would have been taken care of by now or your attorney would have taken those people back into court and would have received penalties and sanctions for the lack of follow-through on the original order

    Why isn't your current attorney filing the 132a for you that you need 2 attorneys for the same case is ridiculous.
