There are things you can do but only a lawyer that is licensed in your state can give you legal advice.
The issue would have to go back to the case filed against you and probably start with if you were properly served and then if the debt was valid at all.
It sounds like there is some question regarding the validity of the debt in your eyes. Based on the lack of proper documentation on those purchased debts, if you pushed to verify the validity I bet they would be unable to proper verify the debt was valid and collectable. See Debt Validation Finally Defined. What You Should Ask a Collector or Creditor for to Validate a Debt.
It appears that you either lost the case because you never responded to the suit or may not have been properly served.
The debt is not required to be reported on your credit report. Actually no debt is required to be reported.
