Customer Question
I have filed a lawsuit...
I have filed a lawsuit against a car dealership in small claims court and they did not show up. An entry of default and final judgement was entered for the amount of $1,528.49 on 4/30/08. SInce I have been trying to collect they have since said that a notice of dismaissal will be filed on this case. I have already imposed a lien on their property (it is a car sealership with real property) and was wondering if I can take the next step of getting with the sheriff department to take vehicles and sell them to pay off my judgement.

Hi,

Yes you can, but I suspect that if you do, if they haven't already done so, they will move to stay execution pending the outcome of the application to dismiss.
