defendant was served and appeared in court with drivers license. Judgement against defendants was rendered

TexasLien Foreclosure

Judge left off just the suffix Jr. on judgement. What effect does this have on foreclosing on real estate owned by defendant? Defendants name with JR. was on lease and numerous other docs as part of the lawsuit for which the judgment was rendered. Thoughts

This is a really interesting question. First, I'll note that a typo (such as the one mentioned above) could certainly have serious legal ramifications. Failure to include something as simple as "Jr." could really create some headaches. However, when that mistake is not made by a claimant, but made by the court, the issue is likely less dire. If a typo poses an issue when proceeding with a foreclosure action, it can probably be fixed. Clerical errors in a judgment - if a mere clerical error on behalf of the court is the root of the issue - can typically be corrected via a motion with the court. TexasLawHelp.org has a nice resource on the topic: Correcting a Clerical Error in a Court Order.
