To everyone who wanted to know the final word on this matter: After a year of fighting this, and some great legal assistance in New Mexico, the Cailfornia attorney hired to handle the matter in California turned out to be an incompetent waste of life and hopefully will be sanctioned by the California State Bar. Instead of familiarizing himself with the case and listening to my attorneys in New Mexico, he decided to "do his own thing" and was blindsided by the conman so IT IS OVER. I'm not spending another dime fighting this. I got a $5k exemption in lieu of homestead from New Mexico, so by the time I was given the exemption, there is still money "owed" to the conman as the proceeds from the sale of my RV did not cover his "judgment". And I'm sure his attorney is still waiting to be paid, as so many other of his attorneys he has used in the past have yet to be paid. Anyway, because this man still wants to get money out of me and make my life miserable, I won't be posing on anymore as I don't want him to know where I am or anything else. As it stands, two attorneys from New Mexico have taken it upon themselves to investigate the legality of what happened to me. With the RV and car being exempt in California, they FEEL ( they do not know this and this is what they are investigating) that the exemptions in California should have been valid as it was a California judgment. It was a whole new ball game without precedent. An area law had not yet trashed until now. There was no other case similar to my case in any way. In their opinion, common law should have prevailed - and common sense. And in my opinion, the entire legal system of Eddy County, New Mexico should hang their head in shame. I have given them permission to go forward, but told them that I do not want to hear ANYTHING unless it's good news and I don't want to hear anything until it's over. I wasted a lot of money and one year of my life on this and that's all I'm willing to put into it. Life is too short and too precious to let someone else control your life. I have put it all behind me. And living well is the best revenge.

I wish you all the luck in the world, and pray you will enjoy life every day. If there is ever anything I can do for you as a fellow rv'er, pm me. I am new to this board and think now I will get a large umbrella policy, to hopefully prevent this kind of situation. I don't know the underlying circumstances and it's prolly none of my business. Take care of you and yours, and enjoy yourself.

I'm sorry to hear about this. However, a CRITICAL bit of knowledge to take away from this is that you NEVER, EVER just let actual in-court judgments just sit dormant against you.

Once you lose in court and have exhausted/decided not to appeal, that judgment means that in the eyes of the law, you owe the other party money. At that point, right or wrong, in the eyes of the law, if you don't pay the judgment, you become the deadbeat that isn't paying someone else the money entitled to them.

One should NEVER just let the judgment sit and say "well, they will never collect on it because of X. Y, or Z." You end up in exactly this situation, and because in 99.9% of all cases like this the judgment *is* sound and fair (unlike this situation) you just don't get a lot of sympathy from the legal system since they presume that you are just looking to not pay money you owe. They have sympathy for the guy that produces a piece of paper (the judgment) that says you owe him money and have been avoiding ever paying him for months/years on end.

Again, not trying to beat on this situation, but the message is, you can never ignore legal matters. And there are always ways to handle it, even if you lose in court, including bankruptcy.
