My question involves business law in the state of: Connecticut
In February 2008, my aircraft received an annual inspection that required replacement of several components (several thousand dollars) . It was completed at the end of March, 2008. When I picked up the airplane I was told the bill is not ready but the airplane was released back to me with a promise of a bill as soon as it is ready.
I called almost every week asking if the bill was ready. At month 6, the LLC Principal told me he was close to completing the bill and asked me if I would pay him directly instead of the LLC. I told him I was not comfortable with this, but if I got a paid-in-fill statement from the LLC, I would consider it.
10 months later, I received the bill with the LLC letterhead (dated July 2009) with a hand written note telling me to send a check written to him personally because there was no LLC account to deposit the check into. Smelling something wrong, I checked the state records to find out the LLC was dissolutioned June 2008.
I do not dispute the charges and would like to resolve this issue. The LLC has no way of receiving funds, and from what I can see, no longer exists. If I pay the principal directly and let's say he never pays the creditors for the thousands of dollars worth of parts installed in my airplane, , can the creditors come after me?
Any advice would be appreciated.
