Nuts & Bolts: Post-Judgment Remedies -- January 26, 2011 -- When you obtain a judgment, what next? This program will tell you what Remedies in a variety of situations are available to you to collect your judgment, not just have the document that says you have one.

Have ideas for remedies programs? Please let us know! The executive committee always is interested in presenting programs of current interest to our members and welcomes your ideas.


Case Summaries:

Default Judgments
Because Defendant's motion to set aside default judgment was filed more than two years after entry of judgment, the trial court's review was limited to the face of the record, and therefore the trial court erred by considering the evidence attached to Defendant's motion.
Trackman v. Kenney (2010) 187 Cal. App. 4th 175

Attorneys' Fees On Recovery Of Judgment
Code of Civil Procedure Sec. 685.040--which permits judgment creditors to recover attorney fees incurred in enforcing judgments--does not apply in litigation between judgment creditors to determine the priority of their judgments.
Ronald P. Slates, APC v. Gorabi 2010 S.O.S. 6267
