Can an HOA sue me for unpaid dues a year after the home was foreclosed on?

Question Details:

I was told that as long as I owned the home, I can be sued by the HOA for unpaid dues, but once it has been sold or foreclosed, they can no longer come after me for those costs. The home foreclosed last year, and I had not heard from the HOA in well over 10 months prior to foreclosure. I had filed for Chapter 7 a year ago and after that I received a notice that I'm being sued for unpaid dues on a home that I am no longer attached to. I did not list the HOA entity as a creditor on my bankruptcy because I thought they disappeared with the foreclosure.
