All that matters is that the corp. was doing business at the time you were dealing with them.
Any insurance they had at the time would apply to the case.
The judge ruled against joining the defendants insurance company in the law suit.
So, my understanding is the individuals' corporate officers or shareholders can be held personally liable even if the corporation is dissolved on their behalf. Thanks, Dave
A notice of dissolution has to be filed with the secretary of state, but the effective date is when the resolution is passed by the company.
IF A NOTICE OF DISSOLUTION HAS BEEN FILED,CAN I SUE THE CORPORATE OFFICERS PERSONALLY FOR ANY PERSONAL THEY OWN UNDER THERE OWN NAME.THANKS DAVE
How do I know for sure the corporate veil is pierced. thanks Dave
You said earlier that the individuals', corporate officers or shareholders can be held personally liable even if the corporation is dissolved on their behalf. My assumption is that the court told you this. If the court said you have the right to sue the people individually, then you've pierced the corp. veil.
However, if the court didn't give an order to this effect, you can't sue the individuals. All you can do is sue a dissolved company with no assets - which would be a big waste of time and money.
