My case was Dismissed With Prejudice. What is my next step?

Asked over 1 year ago - Falmouth, MA

I was a debtor in a case with CitiBank. The law firm that was collecting for CitiBank has harassed me for the last 3 years. Today, I went to court and stated that the Supplementary Process proceeding that they had requested was unfounded and they showed how they have harassed me. The judge agreed and Dismissed (my case) With Prejudice. Do I still continue to pay CitiBank the same way and the same amount? Or is the whole thing dismissed?

    Answered . Supplementary Process is a collection action; it doesn't deal with the amount you owe, only the amount you can and must pay on an outstanding judgment. It is hard to understand what the judge meant when he dismissed it "with prejudice".

    Evaluating any legal question requires a detailed knowledge of the specific facts involved. Since a short... more
