    If any company can just refuse to pay a civil judgment, how can anyone be sued for anything?

    If a judgment is filed, the bank will pay. Count on it.

      judgments, which I have no idea about.  But in a normal civil case you can have the defendant's property attached, meaning if you win and they refuse to pay, the court can seize their property and pay you out of those funds.  

    •  No Bank is going to refuse to pay a judgement (7+ / 0-)

      Most likely they settle out of court before the case goes to trial and the settlement agreement has the force of a written contract.

      In addition to a civil claim, an insurance claim against their insurance, a claim with the banking authority, an appeal to the congress critters, senator, and governor to get involved and the resultant bad publicity which just damage the bank, you can ruin some careers and thats probably some inducement to make it all go away quick

        I foresee some Elizabeth Warren whoop-ass in this bank's future.
