We Make Up Our Own Law...

Had a frustrating example of judge-made law in court yesterday. We took an approx. $20k judgment against a defendant. I always try to get a Memorandum of Judgment signed simultaneously with entry of Judgment to immediately lock-up any real estate. This is proper. A judgment is a "judgment" immediately! And yet the Court yesterday required us to wait 30 days before they'll sign-off on a Memorandum of Judgment.

Same thing happened to me.
