federal court, ohio
i copied and pasted the wrong question, sorry. I meant to ask this one....i sued this defendant, named, for example, SMITH, LLC....but they recently just changed to SMITH and JONES, LLC . I am amending the complaint, and just realized the name change today...should i continue to name them what they were named when the violations occurred, and what they were named in the original complaint? Jones is the same partner that was included in the original complaint, but there are new partners..should I add them. or because they came after the violations, they should not be added? we have not spoken of this , no, as I just found out today. thank you
yes they responded with answers a long time ago as SMITH, LLC this is an old case, filed april 2012 I am just amending for various other reasons, but while im at it, i noticed this change in partnership..when i named them, it was one owner, now its 2 named partners, and 2 unamed ones.
A plaintiff in another case such as mine sued all partners in the firm, so maybe i need to add the new partners , even though they werent partners at the time of the violations? thanx again
perfect thank you..sorry about the confusion before.
