Legal Question

Asked on: 5/20/13, 1:01 pm

I have a business and we completed work for a company that has paid in full. A small effort was made to pay but there is still a balance due that is significant. The main person who owes the money decided to write two post dated checks that were bad. The company filed for bankruptcy, but we never received any papers informing us of this. We were able to get a judgement against the person who wrote the personal checks that were bad.

My question: is the judgement enforceable even though the company has filed for bankruptcy? Can this person show the court this payment was for a now bankrupt company, and not have pay, even though checks were written from his personal account?

Thank you. I live in Utah.
