debt collection-judgments

I was sued by a 'junk debt collector'. I had to go to Small Claims Court. I could say about nothing except I thought the debt if legit was beyond statute of limitations. I also stated my ONLY income since 1979 was a Social Security Disability check.

(besides that the collector followed nothing in any debt collection laws..Midland Funding/Schiff..)


I sat in court as the 'judge' negotiated payments out of peoples Social Security checks. (other than my case)


In my case the 'plaintiff' could not even find any paperwork relating to my case so said nothing. (the lawyers office vs. me)


ok---I just got my judgment that I have to pay $35 a week out of my Social Security Disability check and interest accrues forever until paid. (there was no interest in past 10 years)

I am very ill and talk about rough times for many in 2008 ?? I can't even pay doctors bills and the state here as to any assistance has gone to about zilch.

Quite simply I think I will be dead over this one.

Social Security is totally exempt income. That judge should know that.

File a bar complaint against the judge. They are NOT above the law!

If someone calls and speaks to someone other than the debtor regarding the debt then they are in direct violation of law!

How does a plaintiff proceed to get a defendants SSI check garnished in California once a judgement is made?

Sub: #5 Do Not Respond!

Especially if it is past the statue of limitations... DO NOT respond in ANY WAY! If you do, the "clock" restarts!
Let them make threats all they want, ignore it!?? Unless you receive a notice of a court date, then stand firm.?? Do NOT answer a phone with your name. If someone you do not know ask you your name or if you are "Joe" then do not answer!
They will use every trick in the book via phone or mail to get you to respond so they can restart the clock on your debt!
Look up Clark Howard and ask him!

Sub: #7 What I don't understand is how can a judge order someone to pay

What I don't understand is how can a judge order someone to pay from SS is SS is exempt? This is very disturbing. The whole thing is very disturbing...the plaintiff had no documentation at all and just sat there silent??? Something wrong here IMHO.

I would have objected strenuously and demanded documented proof....but it sounds as if the judge would have ignored the requests...
