(not asking for legal advice)
I have a legal question and since I'm as poor as an Alabama dirt farmer [(how does one go about farming dirt?) that is not my question] I thought I would post it here. By way of background, I'm an undergrad at FSU and hope to attend FSU Law in 09...GO NOLES!
Anyway, sometime between '98-'00 I had occasion to hire an atty.(A1) to handle my tenant evictions in St. Louis where I had a business and used to reside. As happens, we parted ways and to the best of my knowledge I owed him nothing. In '00, I filed Chapter 11 and notified all parties. I know for a fact that my bankruptcy atty.(A2) and this other atty. were in contact so I have no reason to believe that he wasn't properly notified of my bankruptcy. Bankruptcy was closed in late '01 early '02.
Fast forward to late '06 (maybe early '07) I received notice from a local atty.(A3) that A1 received a judgment against me for $6000 and change in '03. This coming January, I have a court date for a Motion for Order Compelling Discovery in Aid of Execution. I think those are the essential elements. I don't have the specifics on the judgment since I was never notified that there was an action against me (in '03 I was already living in FL).
Since I have access to FSU Law library, I can research some of this stuff but I have no idea where to start looking. I'd also be interested to know how I can drag this thing out as long as possible (unless it would somehow effect my law school application). I've thought of contacting A2 and having him send a letter that A1 was included in my bankruptcy.
Thanks for any help.
