I have a claim for lien registered but I think that I might also have a claim for breach of trust. A friend of mine overheard the guy who hired me bragging about how he got a big payment from the owner and was going to buy a new truck with the money. Can I just sue for both in the same claim?

No. You need to start two separate actions – one to perfect your claim for lien and a second to sue for breach of trust.   The Construction Lien Act doesn’t allow you to bring both claims in the same proceeding.
