Default Judgment Set Aside

May 2022

Keith Olivera and Jack Stokan recently succeeded in setting aside default judgment entered against their client.  Counsel for the plaintiff failed to accomplish valid service upon White and Steele’s client, and proceeded forward by obtaining a sizeable default judgment.  All of this while White and Steele’s client did not know a judgment had been entered.  White and Steele filed a motion to quash service and set aside default judgment, and the Court set the matter for an evidentiary hearing.  At the hearing, the judge heard testimony from White and Steele’s client and other witnesses.  At the end of the hearing, the Court entered an order quashing service, and setting aside default judgment in the amount of approximately $150,000.
