Business man who sues in the name of non-existent company is charged with paying case evaluation sanctions, personally
Peter Stanaj filed a suit against the Salisbury Investment Group in the name of "the Stanaj investment Group" alleging breach of contract. He rejected a proposed case evaluation settlement, however, and then lost his case. The defendants belatedly pointed out that the Stanaj Investment Group was not a legally-registered entity and sought case evaluations against Stanaj personally. Although the court suggested that the defendants should have raised the issue earlier, it upheld a $15,000.00 award of sanctions against Stanaj personally.
