Plaintiff sues you as John Doe but your name is John Dow


Recommended Posts

So plaintiff filed a complaint naming John Doe as defendant but your name is John Dow.  You notify them they have the wrong person and they ignore it.  Eventually you go to trial and lose.  Would the judgment be in only John Doe?  No other name was in the complaint.   Would they be able to change it afterwards to John Dow?

judgment enforcement is confirmed via ss number and date of birth if you are true debtor they can still attach assets with minor typographical error. if you are not true debtor you have nothing to worry about

How will they get social security number and date of birth?  Only from what they have on file?  Who is to say it is correct?  I'm just looking at every angle for a relative.  Went to trial. Motion in limine denied regarding ccp 98 and judge just immediately entered judgment based on ccp 98 evidence.  The thing is the evidence even has the wrong name.  It isn't just a title of lawsuit that is wrong.  Even statements are wrong.

From the application? We are making a lot of assumptions because there has not been a lot of information provided.

 

Was this a credit card suit? A loan? A damages suit?  All this makes a difference on what information they already have.

If it's a loan or consumer credit or bank type debt, after 2001 financial institutions are required by law to obtain the ssn and dob from anyone who applies for credit, thats how they would have the information.
