We assisted a California based national lender in setting aside a $750,000 default judgment levied against it. Our team turned around a motion to set aside the default and further secured an agreement to stay execution of the judgment until the trial court had a chance to rule on the motion to set aside the default. The motion attacked service and further argued that excusable neglect or the court’s inherent authority justified setting the default aside. The court ruled in favor of the lender on all points enabling it to remove the lawsuit to federal court to defend the Fair Credit Reporting Act claim at issue on the merits.
