Someone I have a personal gripe with filed an IIED lawsuit against me in California state court, and I don't have the money to hire an attorney to defend myself. If I lose by default--which I guess will certainly happen since I'm ignoring it--and on the off chance that the plaintiff wins a monetary judgment against me, how can they collect if I never contact them and never tell them which bank I use? I rent and don't own a car, so other than my bank account I have no assets the plaintiff could come after.
Basically, how would the plaintiff find out where I have my savings if I never default and ignore them?
And if they know where I live, does a judgment give them the right to just barge into my apartment and take whatever's in there to sell?
