Recourse on Judgement

I have a judgement against me. I was never served, and recently found out about it. As well as disagreeing with the judgement itself do I have any recourse in NY state. It is over a year old.

Once a Judgment is final, that is it.  However, if you were never served, and there is reasonable cause to say so, you may have cause to appeal.  It is best to retain counsel and keep this issue under the umbrella of client privilege.

I have posted my opinion on AOL Answers as a public service. These opinions are not intended as legal guidance nor do they create a counsel-client relationship. I recommend that you also consult counsel where you have an actionable case or so have reason to believe. E. Carter, Esq.
