Case Summary: Judson v. Wheeler RV Las Vegas, LLC
Posted on Aug. 30, 2012

If you have a judgment or a judgment has been entered against you, what happens next? How do you collect on the judgment or challenge the judgment?

Litigation begins when the plaintiff files a complaint and serves it on the defendant. After a certain period of time, the defendant must answer.  If the defendant does not file a timely answer, the plaintiff can ask the court to grant a default judgment. The plaintiff can then attempt to collect on the judgment. But, in some circumstances, the defendant can still challenge the judgment even after a default judgment is entered. In a case recently heard by the Utah Supreme Court, Judson v. Wheeler RV Las Vegas, LLC, the defendant challenged the default judgment.  

The Jones Waldo litigation department has decades of experience assisting clients collect on or challenge default judgments.
