What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Ohio
Hello- I am hoping somebody can answer a couple questions for me.
I received notice as the defendant for a motion called "motion to revive dormant judgment". The original judgment was granted Nov. 27, 2001 for the amount of $250.00.
The background is that I owned a small business and some guy left his piece of junk car in my lot over-night after our shop did some work. The car was stolen, and he sued me for $500.00. He was awarded $250.00.
Back then I remember paying this guy. He is a drug addict con artist, and I didn't want anything more to do with him.
Now almost 10 years later I get this motion to revive dormant judgment.
He is doing it on his own, so there is no lawyer.
His phone number listed on the complaint is disconnected, and the one I got from the white pages says "mail-box full" when I call, and I've called about five times in the last couple days.
How should I handle this when I no longer have financial records from 2001?? I don't even know if I used my personal or business account, I just remember I paid it.
I'm getting ready to move out of town in three weeks, and do not want to have to come back here for a hearing, especially when this jerk is lying.
The notice says to respond to plaintiff within 28 days, and then file the same with the court within three days.
Any advice would be very appreciated.
