In theory, the GC should be liable for the unpaid subs, yes.
In 3/22, a civil complaint was filed against me, which I responded and now the plaintiff has hired an attorney, 5/17/23, which filed an amended civil complaint. What is the rules to follow now? Is this not a new complaint?
answered on Jun 1, 2023
You need to file an Answer to the Amended Complaint. If Leave Of Court was not granted to amend the Complaint, you could move to strike it. That will probably not help your case unless there is a violation of the SOL.
And what should I do if I have proof of someone assaulting me, calling me racist names, and destruction of private property?

you can go to the court and petition for a protective order. If s/he does it after the restraining order is granted, the police will arrest on the spot.

I purchased a water softener unit for my house and I recently found out that the finance company placed a lien on my property as soon as the contracts were signed. The payments have been paid regularly and up to date when I found out of the lien on my property. Can this be done without a judgement?
answered on Mar 6, 2019
It depends on what you signed. It might be that you gave them a lien on your home, like a mortgage.
It is not a judgment lien in all likelihood.
