No, they cannot be sued civilly because of such decisions.

If the debt that you were sued over, or the judgment itself was included in your bankruptcy, you only need send a copy of your bankruptcy papers to the credit reporting agencies. The judgment will not "come off", but it should get marked "included in bankruptcy" or "discharged through bankruptcy".

If it can be proven, the judge can be impeached, arrested, or subject to being sued civilly.

Of course. Actually you are only "charged" for a crime and you are "sued" civilly. In your example, the retail theft is a crime and can be indicted, tried and punished. If restitution is not ordered in the criminal trial, the victii can sue civilly to recover.

Yes, the accident and bankruptcy are two different issues.

In general, yes, if you haven't files bankruptcy.

User Avatar

Absolutely; anybody can be sued. If the court orders you to make a payment which you are unable to pay, you can declare bankruptcy.

User Avatar

Yes, but generally not for something that occured before they filed....that must be handled by the bankruptcy court - who may - depending on the issue - ask another court to determine liability.

I think yes there are chances that person can be sued in a civil law suit because filing bankruptcy is such a process that it remains it in your name for at least for 10 years.and it affect on all ways to your life.

The verb is to sue, with the forms sued and suing.

No, lawsuits do not prevent a person from filing bankruptcy. The lawsuit will be stopped when the BK is filed and the debt or judgment can possibly be included in the filing. It is at the discretion of the trustee as to whether a BK or any portion of it is allowable according to bankruptcy law. The BK petitioner has the option of appealing any trustee ruling with which they disagree.

Not by creditors who agreed to participate in the chapter 13 bankruptcy.

User Avatar

Yes, if it is not a perfected lien against real property and the debt was discharged in the bankruptcy.

User Avatar

they are getting sued because they stole the name from someone in the U.S.A.

Yes you can file for chapter 13 bankruptcy after being sued. NO the liability and payments that attach if the other party is successful in the suit will NOT be discharged or reduced based on the fact that you have filed for bankruptcy. You will owe that individual the full amount (if they prevail) and it will stay with you throughout the bankruptcy proceeding and beyond. The above got it' hands crossed: ONLY items (debts and assets) that exist BEFORE (pre-petition) the filing of a bankruptcy ARE involved and protected by the bankruptcy. Those after the filing (POST petition) obviously are new and not excusable. There are some circumstances that may prevent a pre-petition item from being included: Type of debt (say child support), or if it was taken in "anticipation" of filing bankruptcy or too soon before so it looks that way.)

You can always be sued for hurting someone. Is it worse to hurt someone while wearing a bullet proof vest? Not particularly.

Only if you otherwise qualify for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy involves discharging debt. Certain debts are not dischargeable, like back child support, student loans, some taxes. If you are in violation of a state law requiring insurance coverage, filing bankruptcy will not help.

User Avatar

Yes, he did. He got sued for scamming someone out of money. I do not know what the verdict was though.

User Avatar

Someone who is sued sues back.

User Avatar

No, why would you think that?

User Avatar

If you are sued and a creditor gets a judgment against you, you may be able to discharge your personal liability on that judgment in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This will depend on whether the underlying debt is dischargeable (meaning you can wipe it out in bankruptcy) or nondischargeable.

User Avatar

If both persons were sued and a judgment awarded but only the husband filed bankruptcy and included the debt; the judgment can still be executed against any non-exempt property belonging to the wife and perhaps jointly owned property as well. The legal presumption is that the debt is still owed because it was jointly incurred.

Yes. If you messed with someone from anywhere, they can sue you.
