    Answered . The answer to your question appears to be self evident. It is well established that things obtained by fraud can usually be reclaimed by proving such fraud in a lawsuit on that basis. However, there can be defenses, such as the Statute Of Limitations, laches, unclean hands, and other defenses. Obviously there is more to this story, so if you are interested in undoing the effects of someone's fraud, consult with an attorney and give him/her all the facts and you will receive the legal advice to help you handle this appropriately.

    Answered . Presenting knowingly false evidence to a court is a serious transgression. Your question does not say when the proceedings occured. However, a court would take significant steps to correct a fraudulently obtained judgment. Exactly, how that would be done would require more information about the incident and when, relative to the timing other pertinent matters, it occured. I think you would be well advised to have legal assistance.
