Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer.
Are you asking about judgments in general, or a particular type of judgment?
If the latter, what type of judgment are you asking about?
It would be unconstitutional - because a violation of due process - if the person being garnished did not have a chance to go to court to defend against the action that resulted in a judgment. This happens most often when the defendant is not served the court papers (the Summons).
I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.Thank you!
No - if you do go to court - or if you were given the Summons but did not go to court - there would be nothing unconstitutional about getting a judgment.
There are no Articles in the Bill of Rights - which are the first 10 Amendments.
No matter how far one stretches one's imagination, it is not possible to equate a judgment or its ramifications with involuntary servitude.
Being able to afford medical care is not a constitutionally protected right. Death that results from not being able to afford medical care - regardless of the reason - is not an actionable claim.
Judgments have never been determined to be unconstitutional.
