What is a Default Judgment?

When the defendant fails to answer the complaint in a timely manner or at all, the plaintiff may request that the judge enter a default judgment. A default judgment awards the plaintiff reasonable damages requested in the complaint. The defendant then has a specified time period to refute the judgment, pay on the judgment, or risk contempt of court.
