Long story short- AMEX credit card debt from X husband, went to court lawyer was 1/2 late, finally shows up and judge asks us to try and work it out. I made the atty an offer and was told that he didn't have the authority to approve it. Judge scheduled a later court date. Went back to court approx. 4 mo the later, credit card lawyer doesn't show up. Judge orders "judgement dismissed". 3weeks later Credit card lawyer files "motion to vacate", Back to court, judge denies motion. I raise my hand to ask the judge a question and he says "don't push your luck, you won". Two months later credit card lawyers starts calling again demanding payment. I'm confused, did I win or not? According to the court clerk even though the judge denied motion to vacate, the credit card company can continue to take me to court regardless and forever. Other than the original judgement dismissed, I didn't receive anything from the courts after.
I thought that once the motion to vacate was denied, the case couldn't be brought back to court??
