Tenant Presents No Potential Defense to Vacate Default in Eviction Case
LVT Number: #30261
Landlord sued to evict tenant for creating a nuisance. The court ruled for landlord at an inquest after tenant failed to appear in court. Tenant later asked the court to vacate the default judgment. The court ruled against tenant, who appealed and lost. Even assuming that tenant had a reasonable excuse for failing to appear on a rescheduled trial date, she failed to demonstrate that she had a potentially meritorious defense.
