I am in New York resident with New York bank accounts. My bank will not release my funds and recognize my protection under EIPA $1740 exemption for basic living needs. Each account contained under $1,740. because it’s a California judgement. Are they acting lawfully? What are my options? Thanks

Answer the summons. Your bank account can be frozen if there is a judgment. You might be able to unfreeze it with an exemption. Do not send a letter. Answer the case. Now that the case is in court, and payment arrangement should be in writing and a court order.
