suing a business in small claim court
I have a dispute regarding a stop payment to a check from company X. If company X is headquartered in county A and has branch office in county B where I live and did business, can I still file my case in county B?
Who should I name as defendant: company X, its President, its Finance head, its Accounting head, anyone in management or any employee?

Re: suing a business in small claim court
If you entered into the contract in County B, then that is an appropriate place to file the small claims action. Unless the business is a sole proprietorship, you would only name the company and not any of the officers.
