Thank you for the information. Unfortunately, you cannot sue an Association that is no longer in existence. However you can sue individuals in their individual capacity who are purportedly acting for an Association that no longer exists.
Your response of "Unfortunately, you cannot sue an Association that is no longer in existence." is not sufficient. I am not at all satisfied with your response.
1. You have not provided any case or statutory law to substantiate your opinion.
2. It is in direct conflict with IL state statute 805 ILCS 150/ 112.30 regarding dissolution of General Non For Profit Corporations, where Section 112.30 "Effect of dissolution" clearly states:
"(c) Dissolution of a corporation does not: ..... (3) Prevent suit by or against the corporation in its corporate name;"
quick correction of my 2nd to last email......
However to my knowledge now, the registered agent never reinstated since the Assc was dissolved in Mar 2011.
Not Mar 2012. Mar 2011 was when the Sec of State dissolved the quasi association, but dissolved it simply because the Reg. Agent apparently never filed any paperwork.
If this issue entails in your opinion too much investigation, etc., please let me know and do not charge me for anything.
