I have an Alabama judgment against a California business . I had sued the fictitiously named business ( a sole proprietor who had filed a fictitious business name ( dab ) ) instead of the individual who was doing business as the fictitious business name . Now , the accompany has gone out of business , but I still need to collect on my judgment . Is there a way to have the judgment amended to reflect the individual's name instead of the business so that I can collect from the individual ? If so , how do I do this ? If not , what can I do to collect from this individual ? Do I need to sue again ?
