Estate of Casserley (Hawkins v. Joya)
Cal.App. 4th Dist. (D072298)
C.C.P. Section 686.020 states: "After the death of the judgment debtor, enforcement of a judgment against property in the judgment debtor's estate is governed by the Probate Code, and not by this title." The court held that because the abstract of judgment in this case was recorded after decedent's death, the probate court correctly found the abstract did not create a lien on estate assets.
