Judgments On Web Sites

Recovering a judgment is usually tough, and the chances of recovery are usually a long shot. Can you embarrass a debtor into paying you by putting a copy of your judgment on some web site? May one copy a judgment debtor's name for the name of a new website to accomplish that? May you also put extra info like your side of the story, or whatever you know about them, and maybe include their picture and address?

This article is my opinion and is not, legal advice. I am a judgment expert, and not a lawyer. When you ever need a strategy to use or legal advice, you should contact a lawyer.

May you place a copy of your judgment onto a website? I think that if you place a copy of just the judgment as it was filed at the court house, that is probably legal, because civil judgments are a public record. However, some action above that, you must be very careful because of laws that protect privacy, etc.

If you put on your website, "This is the copy of my judgment I got against Dan Debtor", and put a PDF or JPG copy of the final judgment, this would be OK; if there is nothing private like your debtor's address or their SSN on the judgment. If these are on the judgment, be sure to cover them so they can't be read.

Whether your judgment debtor or their attorney can sue you isn't actually the question, as anyone may sue anybody else for whatever reason. The relevant question is, will they win at court? The answer probably depends on if you restrict whatever yourself to the example in the paragraph above or not. What happens when you:

A) Use the debtor's name as a web site name, showing a copy of the judgment, for example: <a href="https://" target="_blank"></a>.

B) You write derogatory messages and/or the judgment debtor's private info on public web sites, or publicly call the debtor a deadbeat. An example is visiting the debtor's page at Facebook page and posting a message saying the debtor not repaying your judgment.

C) You place the debtor's picture, address, telephone number, date of birth, SSN, their relative's or kid's names, or any other private information about them on any website.

I'm not an attorney, but I think the actions listed above are listed (ABC) by the odds those type of actions might someday be a basis for a lawsuit if you got sued. When you do anything similar to A, you may receive some letter from a lawyer one day. When you do all three - A, B, and C; you may then one day get a judgment against you.

When you only show the public record of a judgment at some website, I believe you're OK, as anyone may go to a court house and buy a copy of a judgment or get the judgment online. (Presuming your document has not become destroyed or lost.)

Even if you just place a copy of your judgment, and then write the truth (your side of the story) with your own words, your words are not meant to get part of a public record tied to the debtor. While your words may not be considered slander or libel, what you write may get interpreted legally as "damaging" to your debtor's reputation.

I do not advise placing your judgment on some web site as it probably will not get you repaid, and could cause hassles for you. If you feel that you have to share the judgment on some website, it is best to publicize just a copy of the judgment.

Judgments That Are Tough
Hot potato judgments are difficult judgments which no judgment enforcer, collection agency, or contingency attorney will accept or keep. These judgments are hot potatoes as they are passed around quickly, and no one wants to retain them for long. A hot potato judgment gets shown to lots of people that refuse to take it. Often (perhaps eventually), such judgments are accepted by a brand new judgment enforcer; that try to recover on them for some time and recovers no money, and either becomes...

Lawyers Enforcing Judgments
Many people know that across the country, courts are cutting back on hours and services, and raising all fees. What isn't as well recognized is that nearly every day, yet another court decides that assignees of record, recovering judgments they were assigned on a contingency payment basis, cannot represent themselves in their court. Certain judges and courts are being persuaded by either attorneys or others, that those enforcing judgments for other people are performing UPL (the Unlawful...

Settling A Judgment
I am not a lawyer, I am a judgment referral expert. This article is my opinion, and not legal advice, based on my California experiences. If you ever need legal advice or a strategy to use, please contact a lawyer. Partially recovered judgments are more common than fully satisfied judgments. Most judgments are not recovered, and for those that are, most are just recovered in part. When a judgment creditor is repaid something on a judgment, it's a huge win. Even when the economy was strong,...

Judgments That Are Local
Recently I saw a judgment recovery specialist's web site, where he brags that he can recover all judgments - local, state, federal, tribal, overseas, and galactic. This judgment recovery specialist was not an attorney, didn't work for a collection company, and he works out of his home. I think no one individual has any reason to look at judgments not on earth. Certain inexperienced judgment enforcers and collection lawyers take judgments very far away from them, and then find out they should...

Who Is Lying To Us About The Truth About Judgments
? I am not an attorney, I am a Judgment Broker. This article is not legal advice, it is my opinion. If you want legal advice or a strategy to use, please contact an attorney. With my long-term experience, I understand the the cash up-front value of the majority of judgments is very small. Almost every day, I discuss judgments with more than eleven judgment owners, and trade e-mails with around ten more. Far too often, if I tell people their judgment is not worth much money up-front, they...

Outsourcing A Judgment Collection
Companies have been outsourcing their judgment and debt recoveries for years. Today's economic mess has helped to create an additional opportunity for judgment enforcers, collection agencies, and collection departments to also outsource some of their judgments for collection. This article is my opinion and is not, legal advice. I am a judgment referral expert, and not a lawyer. If you ever want a strategy to use or legal advice, please contact an attorney. To recover judgments, not every...

Judgment Enforcers Should Not Vacate Judgments
In my work, I talk with many judgment recovery specialists. Not long ago a few of them told me about a blog post they saw, about vacating judgments for a judgment enforcement strategy; and was curious about my opinion. The blog post promoted the flawed concept of offering to help vacate judgments, to get their judgment paid quickly. This article covers the reason that vacating judgments to get them paid, is not a good idea. My articles are my opinions, and not legal advice. I am a judgment...

Who Is Your Judgment Against

If you ever want legal advice or a strategy to use, you should contact an attorney.

It is important to know exactly whom the debtor is, and what available assets they may possess, before trying to start a lawsuit...

I'm not a lawyer, I am a judgment expert. This article is my opinion, and not legal advice. If you ever require any legal advice, you should contact an attorney. The two biggest difficulties on judgments, are that many judgments are weak; and certain judgment enforcers and buyers are weak.
