Can I file a motion to vacate/dismiss in an unlawful detainer action on a foreclosed property post-order?

Minneapolis, MN |

I moved out of my foreclosed condo before the end of the redemption period. The bank pursued an unlawful detainer action anyway. I missed the hearing because they mailed the complaint to my vacated condo and I didnt receive notice until after the hearing. Judgment was for plaintiff. I dont care as much about expunging the order- I just dont want the plaintiff to now come after me for legal fees etc. Should I appeal the order? Or submit a motion to dismiss/vacate? What are the timelines/deadlines for this? Or do I wait and fight any small claims court complaint for legal fees/rent?

A complete answer would require several hours of legal work, between meeting you and opening a file and conducting background research. No attorney would do that for free.
