This answer was rated:

A judgment was entered against me. I paid the judgment, plus interests, and costs. The Judgment Creditor has negotiated the payment. The creditor's attorney is refusing to dismiss the Proceedings Supplemental. May I file a Motion to Dismiss Proceedings Supplemental, citing satisfaction of the judgment, with a copy of the negotiated check?

LegalGems :

Hi! LegalGems here. My goal: To Do My Best To Assist You. Please remember, I can only provide general information,as this is a public forum. Typically a plaintiff will only follow through with a Complaint for Proceedings Supplemental if the judgment is outstanding. Since it has been paid in full, normally the plaintiff would dismiss this. Since they are unwilling to do so, you can file a motion to dismiss, and bring a copy of the judgment and the negotiated check. You should also send this information to the plaintiff, because sometimes, when the judge sees that a party has purposefully wasted the court's time by going forward with a moot issue, they will sanction that party for wasting the court's time.
