DISCOVERY POST JUDGMENT

With Comments on Asset Protection

By David J. Willis, J.D., LL.M.



Introduction

This article will discuss and also give examples of post-judgment discovery – interrogatories, requests for production, and depositions directed at the defendant by a judgment creditor. Exhibit A is an example of post-judgment interrogatories that might be sent to an individual debtor; Exhibit B lists likely questions that would be asked of a debtor who is a corporation or an LLC; and Exhibit C is an example of requests for production of documents that might follow a final judgment. Reviewing these exhibits may be helpful to a soon-to-be judgment debtor in knowing what to expect from post-judgment discovery. The bad news is that such discovery is invasive, penetrating, and all-encompassing – and failure to comply may result in a ruling of contempt.

Our article Asset Protection in Texas describes two sets of asset-protection strategies – those employed before suit is filed and those more limited options available after suit is filed. Here, we are dealing with the very end of the process. Judgment has been obtained and, since 30 days have elapsed since it was signed, the judgment is final and ripe for execution. The judgment creditor may now engage a constable or sheriff to pay a personal visit on the debtor for the purpose of identifying and seizing non-exempt assets available to satisfy the judgment. In conjunction with the execution procedure, the judgment creditor may also send post-judgment discovery. In cases involving more than a nominal sum, such discovery should be expected.

Every person who has litigated in Texas for the purpose of obtaining payment of a debt or damages knows that there are two parts to this process: first, obtaining a favorable judgment and second (often the harder part) collecting on it. Because of Texas´ extensive list of items that are exempt from execution on a judgment (See our article Homestead in Protections in Texas for details), many average debtors will be effectively judgment proof. Post-judgment discovery is designed to enable the creditor to determine whether or not he is dealing with a judgment proof debtor, or in rarer instances, a debtor who negligently failed to undertake an asset protection plan and whose assets are widely exposed.

The List of Exempt Assets

Texas homestead exemptions are contained in Art. XVI, Sec. 50 of the Texas Constitution and in Texas Property Code Chapters 41 and 42. A judgment creditor will engage in post-judgment discovery in order to determine if the debtor has real or personal property that falls outside of the following categories:

The homestead (including improvements up to 10 acres in urban areas, up to 200 acres in rural areas) is entirely exempt from forced sale if used for the purposes of an urban home or as both an urban home and a place to exercise a calling or business, including cash sales proceeds for up to 6 months, before which time they must be rolled into another homestead.

Personal property (limited to $60,000 worth for a family or $30,000 worth for a single adult) is exempted is as follows:
(1) home furnishings, including family heirlooms;
(2) provisions for consumption;
(3) farming or ranching vehicles and implements;
(4) tools, equipment, books, and apparatus, including boats and motor vehicles used in a trade or profession;
(5) wearing apparel;
(6) jewelry not to exceed 25 percent of the aggregate limitations prescribed by Section 42.001(a);
(7) two firearms;
(8) athletic and sporting equipment, including bicycles;
(9) a two-wheeled, three-wheeled, or four-wheeled, motor vehicle for each member of a family or single adult who holds a driver´s license or who does not hold a driver´s license but who relies on another person to operate the vehicle for the benefit of the nonlicensed person;
(10) the following animals and forage on hand for their consumption:
(A) Two horses, mules, or donkeys and a saddle, blanket, and bridle for each;
(B) 12 head of cattle;
(C) 60 head of other types of livestock;
(D) 120 fowl; and
(11) household pets.

Current wages for personal services (except for the enforcement of court-ordered child support payments) are also exempt.

Retirement plans (IRA´s and 401k´s) are exempted so long as contributions do not exceed the amount that is deductible under current law. Rollover proceeds are exempt for 60 days.

College tuition funds (including IRS Sec. 529 funds and accounts established under Subchapter F, Chapter 54 of the Texas Education Code) are exempt.

If you are observant, you will notice that certain key items are excluded, namely cash over $5,000 wherever it is located, investments in non-homestead real estate, and investments in non-retirement plan stocks and LLC membership interests. Cash is always the most difficult asset to protect.

You may also notice that no maximum value is listed for the homestead. It can, quite literally, be worth millions of dollars and still be exempt from forced sale to satisfy a judgment – assuming, of course, that the debt was unrelated to acquisition or improvement of the house.

At the very least, a sensible judgment debtor should proactively pay down (i.e., reduce or eliminate debt) on the exempt items listed above long before the constable knocks at the door with a writ of execution in his hand.

Types of Post-Judgment Discovery

As mentioned, there is written discovery – interrogatories, requests for admission, and requests for production – and responses to these are due back within 30 days. There is also the oral deposition. The format and procedure is the same as for any trial deposition, except the focus is now on assets, their location, and their value. If you are properly served with a subpoena duces tecum, and the subpoena describes with sufficient specificity certain documents, then these must be brought with you to the deposition – if you have them.

The cost and complexity of litigation has doubled in the last 10 years, in no small measure due to the impact of computers and technology – i.e., what is capable of being done now is expected to be done. Ironically, the result is more, not less paper. A prime culprit is the expansion of the discovery process, including post-judgment discovery. Excessive discovery, whether successful or not in achieving its goal, nonetheless translates into many billable hours for creditors´ attorneys.

It goes without saying that attempting to represent oneself in the discovery process – i.e., as a pro se litigant without an attorney – is the equivalent of swimming through shark-infested waters. Note also that corporations and limited liability companies are required to have an attorney in Texas.

How The Debtor Should Respond

Although there exist such things as internet searches and private investigators, by and large creditors depend on your responses to post-judgment discovery in order to learn what assets you own and where they are located. Tell the truth, but do not reveal any more information than is absolutely necessary. Ideal answers include "yes," "no," and "I don´t remember." Do not babble on, adding more information (fuel for the fire), particularly in an oral deposition. Force the creditor´s attorney to come back with supplementary questions if he or she is not satisfied.

You will often be asked for records dating back 5 or more years. Most people do not keep bank statements or other such items that long. Do not hesitate to respond by saying that you no longer have such records. Do not offer or agree to obtain them. Similarly, online statements and the like have replaced much paper activity. If you operate primarily online and do not save the paperwork, say so. If a request is too broad and not constrained by reasonable time limits, then object. There is no rule that says the debtor must make collection easy for the creditor. Allow your attorney to guide you.

It is also advisable to be a moving target. Lawsuits happen, but they should not be allowed to bring life or business to a halt. If you can reasonably justify a transaction as being "in the ordinary course of business" or otherwise generally beneficial to you, your company, or your family (i.e., something you might have done anyway even if the lawsuit did not exist) then do not hesitate to act merely because the result makes you less vulnerable to a judgment. Do not be paralyzed with fear because the transaction might "look bad." If you have wanted a new car, buy a modest one and pay cash. It should remain exempt so long as it cannot be proven that you intentionally designed to defraud a creditor. You needed a car, you bought one. You wanted a vacation, you took one. Your taxes or your child´s college tuition were coming due, so you paid them in advance. You retained your attorney with a large sum. You refinanced your house and injected equity to lower the payment. Those are reasonable actions. Leave it to the judgment creditor to go to the judge and attempt to reverse them.

Conclusion

This article has deliberately been kept short in light of the length of the three attachments. Review them. Persons facing a potential judgment should not wait until being served with post-judgment discovery to see what that discovery will likely contain. Consult your attorney and have a response plan in place. The total time to trial is usually 9 to 12 months. The creditor must then wait 30 days until the judgment is final before commencing post-judgment discovery. There is time for at least some asset protection work.
