Customer Question

I am a real estate appraisal in the State of Ohio. I am being sued for negligent misrepresentation. The law suit states that the plaintiffs are not pursuing this action against the Defendants in order to obtain or execute upon a personal judgement against defendants or their assets, but to adjudicate their liability, which is not extinguished in bankruptcy proceedings, as upon information and belief, Defendants carried professional liablity or other insurance that insures Defendants for the losses sustained by Plaintiffs. I filed bankruptcy January, 2010. The appraisal was performed January 25, 2007 and March 15, 2007. Can they filed a claim against me personally? I am with a new insurance carrier that don't cover prior acts claims. Count ones states " Plaintiffs do not seek a personal monetary judgment against Defendants due to the bankruptcy; And Any such further relief in law or in equity that this Court deems proper and just."
