Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for your question and thank you veyr much for requesting me to assist you further.You may be able to file suit directly against the owners of this now defunct company. If the company was taken down, it may still be possible, even via the LLC, to pursue the owners on the basis that their behavior could be pieced via the corporate veil on basis of alter ego. I agree that you cannot go to court without some sort of a defendant, but there you may be able to go directly after the owners of this entity.Good luck.
They are in Arizona I am in Arkansas I have no idea who the owners are. So you say that the lawyer who told me if I could not bring the defendant to court then it does not effect the credit card company. Even though I tried to dispute but they denied me because they could not get the money from the merchant.
Chris,Cross-posted below:If you do know who the owners are, you would need to potentially go to the state LLC sites and find out if they have an agent recorded with the state, or if the name of the owners is likewise recorded. Then if you find them you could potentially pursue them. They likely denied you because of the length of time and their inability to pursue this from the underlying merchant.Good luck.
