I don't see how someone could sue you for using your nickname in your court papers if you go by that your entire life. The judge did not seem concerned about this issue, and I don't see a basis for a suit here. Sounds like she may be grabbing at straws to find some way not to have to pay the judgment. A suit would go nowhere, unless there's much more than you're telling me than the fact that you used a nickname.
