In the law a person can be a corporation or a flesh and blood human. Which one is the State Code referring to? I am not trying to twist the law. The law is hard to understand. I am a fifth year law student and I am just now starting to get a grip on it.
Here is the Question:
What if I start a Corporation and call it DILLON SMITH and then go to court for traffic ticket and they Call DILLON SMITH and my attorney asks the Magistrate to identify the accused.
Is the accused DILLON SMITH the Corp., which is the Spelling on the drivers license or is it Dillon Smith the human?
Thanks for you input and God Bless

The corporation sole, or corporate sole, is legally defined: Corporation of only One Individual
are those which by law consist of but one member at any one time, as a bishop or vicars and the like.
A corporation sole is one consisting of only one member, and his successors in some particular station, who are incorporated by law in order to give them some legal capacities and advantages, particularly that of perpetuity, which in their natural persons they could not have.
