If you lose, will this judgment be dischargable in a Bankruptcy? (If you are not sure, what is the lawsuit for?)
If the judgment would be dischargable (and it would be if there is no fraud or malicious behavior involved), then filing a Bankruptcy while the action is in progress would suspend the proceeding - at least regarding you - so that no judgment could be issued against you.
Once your Bankruptcy case is discharged, the claim against you would be dismissed.
