I was the office manager of a business C corpoation. I signed a contract for advertisment in the yellow pages. I signed as the office manager. Before the ad was published the corportation went inactive and closed the business. Two payments were made to the advertiment company. The summons was sent to me at the corporation's old mailing address. And I recived it 3 days before the hearning. I was being sue for the non



I ran into the same problems in Texas. I think our corp was an S-corp, but does the summons say "your name" and not the "company"? All bills and losses go through the company and are passed on to the shareholders, and never the office manager. If the company were in existence while you were there, and they authorized you to make decisions for the company to place ads, etc. You were just doing your job. But LEGALLY, the company either pays the bill or files bankrupt. You should never be held responsible.
