    Ok, let's do it your way:

    Your concerns are perfectly valid. You are at personal risk about this matter and need to respond properly. You need to contact an attorney.


    (See? Same result.)

    Ok. If he does that, he'll have to serve you with the summons and complaint and you'll have time once that happens to file a responsive pleading (if you choose to do so).

    I don't know if you picked up on this or not, but "adjusterjack" was not looking at the complaint in your case. He was looking at something in a completely different court. As "flyingron" noted, we cannot tell, in your case, who the defendants are or whether the plaintiff named "doe" defendants. It probably did, and even if it didn't, complaints are pretty easy to amend. So yes, it's a possibility that you'll get named personally. How likely is it? I have no idea, but most of my prior comments about the efficacy of a judgment from a federal court in Florida against a UK resident apply to you as well. Do you have assets or a source of income in Florida? Or anywhere in the U.S.? If not, there's nothing the plaintiff can do even if it gets a judgment against you (and, even if the matter goes by default, it takes more than just knowing your name and connecting you to your dissolved company to get a judgment against you). It could file an action in a UK court seeking to domesticate the judgment against you, but you'd then have an opportunity to challenge it -- including an opportunity to argue that you're not subject to personal jurisdiction in the United States.

    Bottom line: the more you do relating to this lawsuit in Florida, the easier you will make it for the plaintiff to shake you down for money.

    Thank you for your reply - I think the concensus is clear that I should do nothing. Thank you for your time and advice.

    Just to be clear, I'm only suggesting you consider the consequences and benefits of any particular action or inaction in light of your company's status as a dissolved entity.
