Legal Question

Asked on: 2/13/12, 3:36 pm

A finance company that bought over another failed company did not sue me for debt owed to the former company and have in fact given me a Form 1099-c debt cancellation note filed with the IRS.

However with the suggestions of the collection agents from the Failed and closed complany they have added the company that have cancelled the debt as Plaintiffs and then assigned the case to the Collection agents as Assignees for the claims so that the collection agents could collect the cancelled debt for themselves.

Is this claims valid in the small claims court.

The Judge in the small claims court do not even understand the Implications of a Form 1099-C debt Cancellation note. and have given a judgement to the Plaintiffs who have cancelled the Debt naming the collection agents as Assignee.

This is a tossed-up case and the judge may have made a technical error.

How could I get the case dismissed...as null & Void.
