Re: Wrongful lawsuit
it depends. If the plaintiff knew that you were not involved, then probably...if the pleading was in good faith and the plaintiff was simply wrong, then probably not. If you have insurance, then regardless you should turn the suit papers over to them immediately. If you do not have insurance you need to file a timely answer or you will loose your remedy and defense regardless of whether you are right.
