“Rehab Addict” star Nicole Curtis’ $32,000 debt to her former lawyers has been settled.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the law firm, Schnelz Wells, P.C., has notified the court the money owed to them has been paid off.
“The Default Judgment entered by this court in the above entitled matter in the amount of $32,783.98 has been satisfied as to Defendant Nicole Curtis.”
As The Blast first reported, Nicole Curtis was originally sued by the law firm Schnelz Wells P.C., claiming she has refused to pay up on a $31,976.96 bill relating to the legal battle with her baby daddy.
Earlier this year, a judge hit Curtis with a default judgment in the lawsuit brought by her former lawyer over $31,976.96 in fees she failed to pay.
The order stated an official will be appointed by the court to foreclose on two of Curtis’ homes in Lake Orion, Michigan. The official will sell off the properties owned and use the proceeds to pay off the $31,976.96 owed to the former lawyers.
One of the homes was purchased for $120,000 and the second was bought for $130,000, but the order states both homes will be sold off at auction.
Curtis demanded the default judgment be vacated claiming she was not properly served with the lawsuit and when she was she immediately took action.
She said her former lawyers placing liens against her home over an alleged unpaid bill is possibly illegal and calls into question the ethical and legal issues about an attorney going after a client like this.
Curtis believed she may have been charged for duplicate services and says she paid over $20,000 and did object to invoices sent to her.
A judge shut down her request to vacate the judgment and the Michigan Court of Appeals denied her attempt to reverse a decision regarding staying the case.
