New Horizons Supply Cooperative v. Haack

Wisconsin Court of Appeals
590 N.W.2d 282 (Wis. App. 1999)


Facts

Allison Haack (defendant) ordered a gas card from New Horizons Supply Cooperative (New Horizons) (plaintiff) and signed an agreement on behalf of Kickapoo Valley Freight, LLC (KVF), taking responsibility for the payment of any gas purchased with the card. An amount of $1,009.99 went unpaid on KVF’s account and Haack informed New Horizons that KVF had dissolved. However, KVF did not file articles of dissolution, nor did it notify creditors of its dissolution when it stopped doing business. New Horizons brought suit to recover the outstanding amount that KVF owed. The trial court found in favor of New Horizons. Haack appealed.
