IF I LIVE IN ONE STATE, CAN A JUDGEMENT IN ANOTHER STATE AFFECT ME?

Question Details:

I live and was served in NY. I never went to TX where the judgment is from but I tried to fight it. It was a case whereby someone had distributed money and they deemed it ill-gotten. I tried to settle with the county clerk and with the law firm (but firm won't reply). I did this from day one after receiving the judgement. Even offering alot didn't make them return a call. I understand the case is old and now its 7 years. I believe the statue in TX to start enforcement of judgement is 4 years. I might be wrong. What is my risk?
