Legal Question

Asked on: 9/04/13, 3:18 pm

Hello,

I live in CA and acquired a commercial property a couple of years ago. I was served with a civil lawsuit, but the court documents listed who I assume was the previous owner. I called the courthouse, and the clerk noted that since the case did not have my name on it, I wasn't properly "served" and did not need to come in.

Fast forward a couple of years later, I have sold the property and the case is now a civil judgement on my credit report. How did this happen and can I get this legally removed?

Tks!
