Customer Question

hi i am involved in court case for eviction for landlord-tenant. i m landlord. i had a case about a month ago, the tenant (now i know that) was not in military (she was 2 years ago). but she said she was and she pulled old badge and showed it to judge. judge then based on her testimony gave a judgement for delaying the case another 3 months. is there any penalty in this case against the tenant since she lied under oath impersonating active duty. she is in reserve now based on my research.
