Thanks for the quick reply. I am not the plaintiff in the appeal; I am the defendant and pro se. I don't want to ask the court to set aside/dismiss the defendant's motion because that's me.
I need a form that asks to vacate the default judgement against me and give me a chance to defend the appeal again. Does this make sense? The appellate judge's law clerk told me I needed a Motion to Vacate and Set Aside Judgement filed.
Thanks for the help. I will credit your account. I thought I needed a form asking the court to vacate the judgement against me. The phrase, "now comes the plaintiff, pro se" threw me. I'll just fill in my defendant info and file it with the court. The plaintiff has an attorney and I am pro se.
