Hello, I am new to the forum and hoping to seek guidance. In 2011 I had a tenant that failed to pay rent, I was able at that time to hire an attorney to assist with eviction and second cause. I am no longer able to hire an attorney but here is the scenario. In 2011 the eviction and second cause filed, tenants appeared and were already out of the home. The judge asked if we wanted to proceed with second cause for monetary damages and my attorney said we do not request a second cause, we simply wanted access to the home. Am I able to file a suit against those tenants to collect unpaid rent if my attorney at the time indicated that we did no during the eviction hearing when asked if we wanted to proceed with second cause?

Is this a new case, or are you asking if you can go back to those same people now and ask for money from a case that has been settled since 2011? If you are asking to get money from the 2011 case, no, you already decided not to pursue that.
