I am a shareholder in a 'buying group" located out of state. 25+ years I was very active in group. A new 'manager" came in as one retired.
had a balance due of 20,000. when I had a stroke & went "lights out" ended my doing business while I recovered.
I made payments past 3 years approx 15,000. had a second stroke one year ago & have not made recent payments.
Case filed in their state I was never served & just found out about this was filed in SEPT. & Nov 15th summary jmt filed & hearing set for 9 days from today.
They sued me for 20K w 2010 invoice w no mention of any payments I made.
The stock I pd 30,000 should have value.
The "new" mgr states in his affidavit I was a shareholder until 2008?? I still am??
Don't you have to be properly served? Is that true in MN?
Can u letter reg mail?I am still a shareholder. My yr end dividends should applied to balance but not for 5 yrs. Don't you have to be properly served or do certain states allow for a plaintiff to simply send a letter reg mail frm P attorney saying consider yourself served....32 days s judgment was filed. Can I still file an answer? Would i do this "instanter? A counterclaim? there are facts could cx out entire 20,000. + facts they actually cx'd my accounts w manufacturers & prevented me from ordering or even sending in warranty repairs which really hurt my customers & was nail coffin ending thriving business of 30 yrs in which I was a pillar in community & now nothing...... Last corp is named as plaintiff & I personally dba xyz company named as defendant MY reg as a bus. entity expired June 2013, which I recently found out .. I went to open a chkg acct. to restart my business, & they filed this claim in Sept. 2013. Does this have any bearing?
