My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Maryland
In July of this year I received a letter informing me that a civil case, that had been decided against me -- with a recorded judgement -- from 2009, had not had any activity in some time and would be dismissed after 45 days. The court records show the same. I recently called the clerk of the court to see why this had not been updated. Her response was that they just take time to clear out.
However, just a few weeks later I received a letter from the court instructing me to appear in "Examination in Aid of Enforcement of Judgment" at a private attorney's office. I assume this is the same as or very similar to an oral interrogatory?
Odd timing of this set aside (for now), what are my options? Do I need to (can I) file a motion to dismiss since the case should have been dismissed already? Or can the plaintiff re-open a case that has a judgement entered anytime they wish?
Thanks for any insight into the matter.
