A company has filed a small claims case against my small business
(single owner LLC
in Connecticut) which has no assets and netted a loss the past 2 years. The plaintiff listed a name for the defendant similar to, but not my company's legal name on the case. A quick search of the Sec. Of State website indicates no business
exists with exactly the legal name contained on the notice of suit. The answer provided by the court lists yet a different name for the defendant. For the record, I do not owe them any money.
The names listed are:
Notice Of Suite: The PC Doctor LLC
Answer Form: PC Doctor LLC
Actual Legal Name Of Business: The PC Doctor, LLC
1. Since my business is not listed correctly on any court documents, can I legally file an answer to this action?
2. If the answer to question 1 is yes, Am I obligated to do so to avoid a collectible judgement?
3. If the answer to question 1 is yes, should I point out the error in my answer filing?
