NEW COURT DECISION REAFFIRMS ABSENCE OF PRIVATE RIGHT OF ACTION FOR PERJURY
If a garnishment affidavit contains a false statement, this does not give rise to a separate cause of action. Instead, the remedy is within the action where the false statement was made. "[S]uch an allegation is a defense to the underlying collection action and must be asserted in that suit." Stricklen v. O.I.P.M., LLC, 2017 OK CIV APP 3.
