Recently, the owner of a construction company was sued personally for two actions taken by his company. First, his company allegedly interfered with someone’s potential business transaction. Second, the company allegedly filed a construction lien with incorrect amounts.

The case came before the Federal Court in New Jersey. The Court held that the contractor could not be held personally responsible for what his company had done. The lawsuit was limited to the company itself. Deluxe Building Systems, Inc. v. Constructamax, Inc., 43-7-0852; January 31, 2011 (unpublished opinion).
