If a collection agency has either purchased the debt from the original creditor, or obtained an assignment of it from the original creditor (to collect on its behalf), generally, it can sue for collection.

Can a collection agency sue if you do not refuse to pay?

If you are not refusing to pay and you pay the debt, they would have no reason to sue you. If you refuse to pay a valid debt, they may advise their client to sue you depending on what state you are in and what the laws are there. Some states only allow original creditors to sue and not the collection agency.

Can you be sued by the original creditor if they have already sold your case to a collection agency?

If they've sold your case to a collection agency, they have been "paid" for your debt with the money the collection agency gave them for your case, so, no, they can't legally sue you - as far as I know.
