Hooray a judgment as been entered! However, just because a decision has been made, the battle is not over yet. Now the phase of enforcing and collecting on that judgment begins. In many cases, a judgment debtor will never willingly satisfy a judgment. For this reason, a post-judgment Receivership is a great judgment enforcement remedy that can help recover money to pay the judgment. A post-judgment Receiver is appointed by the court and, for example, may be granted the authority to manage and take possession of the judgment debtor’s real and personal property to collect, lease, repair, or sell as the court directs. Courts have interpreted that a post-judgment Receiver is in fact working for the benefit of the judgment creditor that sought the appointment of the Receiver.
Time sure does fly. Here at Griswold Law (and in life), things have been quite busy. I was unpleasantly surprised to realize it has been close to a year since the last article. My motivation is renewed and the published articles will follow.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the word "retaliate" as "to repay (as an injury) in kind; to get revenge."
Independent contractor...employee..."getting 1099'ed"...self-employment tax...these terms and their implications, in a legal and a tax sense, are complicated. At the outset of a company/independent contractor or employer/employee relationship, a clear relationship needs to be defined. Unfortunately, many times the relationship is not made clear because neither party understands the difference between an "independent contractor" or an "employee."
Griswold Law obtains a handful of new clients through this blog site, particularly individuals with employee-based claims. Naturally, I am interested as to how these clients are stumbling across my site. Through Google Analytics, I am able to review what keywords are used that lead people here. Among many different variations of internet searches, there is a common theme running through the keywords used that show most people want to know two things right off the bat: 1) Do I have a case?, and 2) How much is it worth?
