Legal Question

Asked on: 11/14/12, 4:40 pm

I live in CA, USA and own proprety in Italy. The italian property adjoins by wall a neighbor who wants to sue me to make repairs to my property claiming water damage infiltration of his property caused by my property. My question: if he sues me in italian court, how does he collect if I am in the USA? I understand a lien maybe placed on my property, but outside of that, can he actually get a judgement here in the USA to force me to pay if he is only sueing in Italy?
