The original claim was served on me personally, and not at the company address in the DEFENDANT field.......So my point was, and still is, was the original Statement of Claim naming, in my case,
Donnavin Inc., c/o Dr. Richard Levin,XXXXX Chelsea Road, St. Michael...... As co-defendants???.....If so, Does the Plaintiff now have the legal right to now name Dr. Richard Levin, when that original case was already dismissed?...Thank you....Your kind response please....
Regardless if you decide to answer my reply or not...I just want to thank you for the argument of "res judicata".....Its brilliant and will work to defend my case.....I congratulate you and I am now very confident this money was well worth the information......regards....Richard
One last question from your response...
I was told by an attorney here that it was rather irregular to list my name with address, and usually "only" company name with address is listed in "DEFENDANT" field..
That being said;
If the Claim was served on me personally "outside" the business address, can it be argued that in fact the "c/o" can be understood as co-defendant, assuming Plaintiff will use your argument of address reference?.....In other words, is the location of service critical enough to attempt using that argument?....Thank you....Richard
