Take Nothing Judgment

When the Defendant wins at trial, a take nothing judgment is granted.  This means that the Creditor “takes nothing” on their claim and zero is owed.  This is often the best result in defense of a debt lawsuit.  To obtain a take nothing judgment, the judge must rule in your favor by agreeing that the Plaintiff has failed to prove their case.

We have obtained many take nothing judgments.  Obtaining a take nothing is extremely difficult and usually the case is dismissed without prejudice or settled with prejudice prior to the case being called to trial.  This is because there is tremendous risk in going to trial.  You either win or lose at trial and many times it is not worth the risk of a full balance judgment against you.
