So any lawyer knows full well what it takes to perfect a judgment. If that weren't so, he wouldn't be a lawyer in the first place. So if a lawyer files judgment without all the proper affidavits and proof of debt in place and properly presented to the court and the debtor finds out that the judgment against him is void upon it's face because proper affidavits and proofs of indebtedness are not presented to the court or there is no sworn testimony in lieu of affidavit from creditor, or for whatever other reason the judgment is voidable, then the lawyer has obviously violated the model rules of professional conduct and has either counseled or assisted a client in conduct that the lawyer knows is fraudulent and is liable to the bar association for his misconduct. He could lose his license to practice law for having knowingly placed a false and fraudulent judgment against you. Yet some lawyers and judges alike, both of whom are lawyers, routinely file and adjucate judgments that are defective simply because it's done all the time. Rubber stamp process. The debtor don't show up in court and don't fight and wouldn't know his rights if they bit him, so the lawyers and judges just do things the easy way and get "away with murder" But in some cases, it could end up costing them their licenses if the debtor wakes up and comes back on them later. How about that, sports fans??
