No, unless she were a co-owner of the business or a co-borrower of cosigner of loans that were business related. A creditor might try to hold a spouse responsible if the couple reside in a community property state. In such circumstances the non owner spouse might wish to consider using an "innocent spousal defense."

How can a judgment be obtained against someone who has been paid in excess of 50k for a business partnership that did not take place?

The short answer would be that the plaintiff presents enough evidence to convince the court that the defendant/debtor owes the debt and therefore a judgment should be entered against him or her. There are never any guarantees of how a lawsuit will turn out, especially when it pertains to business dealings. The most convincing evidence would be for the plaintiff to have a written contract which guaranteed a return of the investor's funds if the business venture failed.
