A: Before Covid, a case the Court would have struck this old. You need to check with the Clerk of Court to see if the case is still active. If you bring it to the attention of the Clerk of Court, the case may get struck.

If the case is struck, that does not mean that the issue is over. The lender will bring a new action to foreclose on the property if the case is struck.
