I have 2 new entries on a 2 year old closed civil case court record. They both say "Assessment" and show a small amount paid for each, ($15, $18) and a receipt number. This is a Florida foreclosure case where I, (defendant), prevailed and was awarded attorney fees but plaintiff has never paid.
Anyone know what these "Assessments" payments are?
I have sought copies of my, and other cases, from the Clerks office before and generally just paid the per/page copy costs here in my county and have never seen anything show up on dockets like this, ergo my question.
I'll call the Clerks office tomorrow....
The reason that I think that it would be that (or some other request by the other party) is that the assessment and the payment days are one and the same. That means that the part paid the same exact day it was requested. I can't imagine what else that could have been, after the case is actually closed.
