Ask Your Own Consumer Protection Law Question

If you were defaulted, then whatever judgment is entered against you is what you must pay. You would not be part of the actual negotiated settlement unless it states you are. If it does not say you are, then the default judgment against you means that you have to pay what the plaintiff asked for unless you get the default vacated.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
