The fact of "trespassing" will likely constitute "wrongdoing". Unless you meet the statutory conditions of "criminal" tresspassing, it's just a violation in NYS (you can get a ticket for a small fine).
There are attorneys on this board who are knowledgeable in securities-related matters who could best advise, but your post remains open for two weeks.

We have a judgment against us from an “old friend” who sued us and the case went all the way to trial in October of 2017. The judgment wasn’t filed until may 2019 and was never served upon us. Then the person said she wasn’t going to try to get the money anymore. We wanted to refinance and... Read more »
Hi, Liz. The interest rate may be specified in the judgment. If not, most states have statutes that specify rates for pre-judgment and post-judgement interest. If this is a New York state court judgment, that rate is generally 9% simple interest. As always, there could be additional facts that...Read more »

My father was unofficially adopted by my grandparents in Puerto Rico in the 1950s, and when he was born they did not change his original last name to what should of been my adoptive grandfathers last name.
For all the time he has been in the United States (specifically NY for over 40... Read more »
Based upon what you have said, to begin with the case would have to be done in PR as that is where he was born, however, since the "adoption" was unofficial it is unlikely that it can be done. What is probably a better option, is to bring an action for a name change back to the time he...Read more »
It sounds like your conference was administratively adjourned (postponed) by the Court until March 31st. Substantively it should not affect your case at all.

My dog was attacking another dog at a dog park and the owner got bit in the process. A police report was filed. An ambulance came and took her to the ER. She got the ER bill. I paid for it and we signed a general release form specifying the amount that was to be paid (the ER bill). It was... Read more »
Anyone can sue anyone if they pay the fee. Thus, the question is do you have a defense. It depends on what the form says. Assuming it is a true general release form, you should have a complete defense.
I'm very sorry for your loss of your mother. You await a response for three weeks - if you wanted to repost and add Probate and Estate Planning as categories, there could be better chances of your question being picked up. There's no guarantee all posts are answered, but the attorneys...Read more »
