Johnson Sr. was the responsible managing agent for Johnson & Sons.  When he died, the younger Johnson didn’t immediately substitute himself in as the company’s RMO, so its license was automatically suspended for a period during which it completed work on the defendant’s product. Held, since a single contract covered all of Johnson’s work on the project, it couldn’t recover for the work it had done while licensed since it continued working under the same contract after its license was suspended.  However, its complaint alleged a basis on which the trial court should have allowed it to go to trial on a claim of substantial compliance.  Johnson Jr. said he didn’t know and had no way of knowing he wasn’t already the RMO at the time of his father’s death, and that once he learned of the license suspension, he promptly applied for and was granted a license with him as the RMO.
