What to do if I was sued for selling a used phone but had proof that it was new when I sold it?

The plantiff also had 14 days return policy or 1 year manufacturere warranty if he had any problems but he did not use any of those avenues. I had very good evidence but I was sick and missed my court date due to taking medication and overslept. Now I have a judgement against the business. What is my recourse?

Hello. Your issues are complex in nature. Please seek attorney counsel from an attorney licensed in your state. There are many questions to be addressed. Know that you face time deadlines for action and you can expect that you will lose certain rights should you fail to act in a timely manner to address the present legal issues. Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will speak initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in a limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.
