Definition Edit

A default judgment is

[a] judgment made against a defendant, because the defendant has failed to appear in court or to properly respond to a complaint. A default judgment typically awards the plaintiff the relief sought in the complaint.[1]

Overview Edit

If proof of damages is required, the court may schedule another hearing on that issue.

A defendant can have a default judgment vacated, or set aside, by filing a motion, after the judgment is entered, by showing a proper excuse for its failure to appear.
