California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to answer your question. Attorneys are typically required to perform due diligence before bringing a lawsuit against someone. If a lawyer fails to do this, he or she can be sanctioned.
It would generally be wise to write the attorney representing the party who sued you and explain the reasons why you should not be named in the lawsuit. State that they sued an incorrect party and that if further action is required, you will seek attorney's fees and costs to defend against the suit.
If this adequately answers your question, please click "accept" so that I get credit--otherwise, I will not be paid for my time. If I have not answered your question, please let me know how I can provide clarification and I will be more than happy to do so.
Also bear in mind that the above does not constitute legal advice, nor is any attorney-client relationship created between us. I am only providing you with relevant legal information, I am not making conlusions about the applicability of that information to the facts that you have described.
