New York Court Denies Motion to Quash Enforcement of Texas Court Judgment Based on Full Faith and Credit Clause


We represented JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. s/h/a JP Morgan Chase Bank, NA ("Chase"), a custodian stakeholder of certain deposited funds, in response to an emergency motion of a judgment debtor seeking to quash a judgment of garnishment obtained in Texas. In response, we argued that the Texas judgment was entitled to full faith and credit under the United States Constitution and as such, plaintiffs/ judgment debtors were prohibited from collaterally attacking it in New York. The Court agreed with our position and denied plaintiff's motion.
