Midland, MI asked in Bankruptcy for Louisiana

Q: Can a company still collect on a debt after bankruptcy?

I have a case where a judgment was filed prior to the bankruptcy. The creditor was informed but the judgment remains. Every time I try to do anything there is the judgment. Can I sue them for that? This debt was discharged. It was sold to a debt collector but the collector is not letting go of the judgment. I am in Louisiana is the any statue of Limitations on a Judgment?

A: Some debts do not get discharged in the bankruptcy, this might be the case. I cannot tell whether this is the case here without more details.
