The defendant(s) would be considered to be "judgment proof" (legal term execution proof). This means the person has not property that can be seized nor wages or bank account(s) that can be garnished by creditors for repayment of the debt. It is not uncommon for a lawsuit defendant to be "judgment proof", the creditor can still record the judgment in hopes that the debtor will not always remain in his present economic status.
