I don’t know what you mean about the state trying to charge you. It either has or hasn’t charged you. If the latter then you should hire an attorney to defend the lawsuit. It would be the state’s burden to establish culpability on your end.

If you did not hire the contractor then I don't think you have a legal basis to sue the contractor. But I believe it is worth looking into suing the sellers for violation of Missouri's Merchandising Practces Act (MPA). Here's a blog article that I wrote. Beware, Missouri's...Read more »

A judgment in Missouri is valid for 10 years, so that fact that the judgment against you is 5 years old only means that it is still valid. If you get summoned, you need to appear.
