Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Are you saying that you have already had a judgment entered against you in a case for money damages?
Or that the plaintiff is just asking for a summary judgment against you?
Did you defend against the case or was it a default judgment?
What are your grounds that you think the judgment should be vacated/ case dismissed?.
Ok, if you don't have a legal defense to the lawsuit, then to be honest, fighting them will only increase the legal fees that are awarded against you and ultimately entered into any judgment. If they get a default judgment, then they aren't paying their attorney to fight the entire case and add several thousand more onto any eventual judgment.
But if you have no assets and your income is from disability, then they won't be able to collect on the judgment regardless.
However, you can fight them if you want to and file an "Opposition to Summary Judgment" and set out all the legal reasons why you don't think a judgment should be entered. But you have to have legal arguments, not ones like it is not fair, as that is an equitable argument, not a legal one..
