I was 21 years old when my mother passed away. I'm sure the statute of limitations has already passed. A lawsuit was filed against her employer in my name without my knowledge or cooperation. The first I knew was when the check came and my signature was needed on the check. How is this possible?

Why not ask the attorney who handled the law suit? Perhaps it was filed originally by your mother. Perhaps it was pursued by the executor of the estate. You do not provide enough information to answer your question.
This gratuitous response does not create an attorney client relationship. The advice provided herein is generic, may not apply to your circumstances and is not to be relied upon in your actions. An attorney client relationship is created only upon execution of an engagement letter hiring me or my firm.
I agree with Mr. Christian. It would certainly help to have more information about the case. If the case was pending in the Los Angeles area, and you still cannot get more information, send me a private e-mail and I may be able to help you.
