Our company stopped payment on a check to an employee that was getting fired for sales travel expenses that we realized were not valid after cutting the check. We informed the employee of it and why without any confirmation or response from him. Almost 3 weeks later, he cashed (not deposited) the check at a local bank in Virginia. Now the bank has filed for and gotten judgements on our company and the former employee. Is this possible?

The bank may have filed for a judgment against your company, but in this short time span (assuming these events are recent)could not have yet received a judgment against the company without having given you an appropriate time to respond to its lawsuit.
So, yes, wha't you've described is possible in terms of the bank filing a lawsuit
against your company, but most unlikely that it has already received a judgment(default) against your company (in my opinion)--again assuming that these are all recent events.
