Good morning Wally,
I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I have been a CA licensed attorney for more than 3 decades.
This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a personal phone conference during which there is no limitation on the number of questions you can ask of me, as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.
Let me know if you don't want a call and I will be happy continue here with an answer for you.
Either way, whether I call you or not, in order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.
1. Are you wanting to try and evict this tenant yourself, or will you use an attorney?
2. Do you have a written lease agreement with them, or is the rental agreement oral?
3. How many months have they lived in your home?
4. You mention a judgment. Did you sue the tenant for the theft, or are you referring to the fact that you reported the theft to police?
5. Did you recover the items that were stolen from you?
Thanks in advance,
