can the Texas judgement be enforced in South Carolina?
Yes, under the Full Faith and Credit Clause of the Constitution, a judgment granted in one state will be recognized by all other states and can be enforced in other states once it is "domesticated" by recording a copy of the judgment in the county where the plaintiff seeks to enforce it.
So if the person chose another state to sue in because the SOL was longer there, then it would be up to the defendant to object if there was no minimum contacts with that longer SOL state and argue that this is "forum shopping" and should not be allowed.
