They did get a default judgement before I could file. What is the name of the motion I need to file. I wanted to give you more background on this case. The plaintiff is an old tenant who thinks we didn't give them back enough of the security deposit. The house they lived in was in our corporate name, however, they sued my wife as an individual. When we went to court the judge told them he would keep the case open, but they would have to re-serve us. They did and then we totally forgot that we had to answer. So I'm not sure what a good explanation is for why we didn't answer. Can you think of one? My wife is also panicked that they are going to be able to go to our bank account tomorrow and take the money out. Can they do it that quick? They got the default on 10/2.
I believe our motion to set aside default was approved, but then the plaintiffs filled a Opposition to Motion to Set Aside Default. Do you know what that is? Thanks
I just noticed that there is Small Claims Referee Motion scheduled in two weeks. Do you think that is to decide on the motion?
