My question involves small claims court in the state of: Illinois
In a small claims case there are two defendants: an LLC and an individual. The LLC was successfully served (by Sheriff), the individual was not. Questions:
1) Will the case against the individual be dismissed if he is not served before the court date?
2) Can the individual be tried separately from the LLC?
3) If the LLC can be tried separately but collection is unsuccessful, can the individual be found responsible for the full amount in a separate trial?
4) What is the best course of action in general for the plaintiff?
Thank you very much.
