Zachery Ty Bryan can't allegedly "ignore" the $108k judgment he owes his ex-business partner anymore. The troubled Home Improvement actor was hit with legal documents after a process server tracked him down at his California home, RadarOnline.com can reveal.

A process server tracked him down and served him legal papers on August 30.

Bryan received everything related to the trial, hearing, and declaration, including a civil subpoena for a personal appearance, the enforcement of the judgment, and an examination order — were handed over at 9:33 AM by a registered CA process server, RadarOnline.com can confirm.

As RadarOnline.com reported, Bryan was sued for fraud, negligent misrepresentation, breach of contract, etc., after being accused of "tricking" a movie producer out of thousands of dollars by "forging" a contract for the 2021 film, Warning, featuring Thomas Jane, Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Alex Pettyfer.

Bryan and his production company, Lost Lane, were ordered to fork over a whopping $108,940.57 after failing to respond to the lawsuit.

However, the film investor's attorneys say they tried to contact Bryan about the judgment but had no luck. They claimed Bryan "ignored all court notices and orders" and "refuses to meet and confer, to respond to emails, letters, and telephone calls, and to respond to legitimate discovery" — but knew about the judgment months ago and even spoke about it in the press.

The lawyers provided Bryan's Hollywood Reporter interview from June, in which he "admitted that he was aware" of the $108k judgment. They further pointed out that the Home Improvement alum — known for playing Tim Allen's oldest son on the hit show — stated on page 26 of the magazine “that he’s 'in the process’ of complying with the judgment."
