Good afternoon. Do you know if QRS Real Estate is related in any way to XYZ Manufacturing or do you think he just wrote the check out of that account and it is unrelated ?
Thank you. Even though they may own both companies, you would need to show that QRS Real Estate Partners were involved or related in some way, to the repairs and work done and issue with the payment. It is possible that they simply wrote the check to pay you from an account they have with/for another business but the writing of the check alone, does not make that company a party to the lawsuit, since the dispute is over work done for XYZ. If they are related, then Yes, you would list both companies and to be honest, you can, if you think they are related, to be safe. If they are not, then QRS would file a motion to be dismissed from the complaint, if they are not a party or involved in the lawsuit.
