they sued me in Aug 2009, they got a judgment against me in Oct 2009,in Sept 2014 5 yrs later I became aware of the judgment as they levied my bank accounts, judgment was set aside due to sewer service ,a Jane Doe had been served at a previous address all the while they had my correct address and had communicated with me at correct address, the judgment was set aside, monies returned but still had to defend the suit and had to file answer in 30 days ,however SOL ran and had left me with defense. I found some good case law and managed to get case dismissed on Jan 2016 almost 7 yrs later.
I believe they got this judgment based on fraud ,and only moved to satisfy judgment after my SOL had ran .The suit was for breach of contract for a vehicle that I had co- signed for that was dead in my driveway
for the same dangerous transmission problem that had been repaired twice and would have met the criteria under the lemon law , I'm self employed and was in the process of rehabbing a house was forced to rent it out lost clients in the process and suffered embarrassment and bounced checks due to the levy, further they found assets (rental income)to go after and lived with the constant threat of levies , garnishments . During the period of Sep 2014 and current day I've been treated for Ulcers, insomnia , depression ,anxiety, all treatments and procedures well documented (endoscopies, sleep studies, phych evals ect).
So no not just upset because someone sued me. I suffered personal injury
and financial loss.
