I've been sued---what now?
I was recently sued in small claims court by a former landlord. I of course wasn’t able to go to court, because I now live several states away, so I imagine they ruled in the landlord’s favor. Has anyone gone through something similar? What measure do they go through to collect, if any, after you are formally sued? What does this all amount to?
