Our client was improperly served with a garnishment in connection with a small claims court judgment.  As a result, the Plaintiff obtained a default judgment against our client for the full amount of the judgment against the Defendant.  When the small claims court judge refused to set aside the default, Ellyn Law was retained to appeal the matter to the Divisional Court.  The matter was settled on consent of the Plaintiff, wherein the Plaintiff not only agreed to set aside the default judgment against our client, but also provide a full and final release – a better result than might have been obtained at court.  Orie.
