Q: new york time to file an answer time the court filing is saying I was served on Jan 12 with an email but I was not
the case was fraud by employee and I need time to find counsel what rights do I have for appeal of judgement or vacant the judgement
A: First, if you are a corporation you may not, by law, represent yourself: you need an attorney. Second, you may move to vacate the judgment presenting a reasonable excuse for the default and a potentially meritorious defense to the claim. From the limited information you provided, it seems you may be able to satisfy the requirements, but an attorney must review your documents and evidence in detail to reliably advise you of your rights.
