§ 6-1432. Default judgments.

   In cases where the defendant fails to answer, demur, or otherwise plead, the plaintiff may, after the day on which said action shall be set for answer, take default judgment upon a verified petition, affidavits, or sworn testimony establishing a claim. No judgment will be entered on a negotiable instrument unless the original is surrendered for cancellation to the court.

Rule 32 amended September 1987. Renumbered and codified as § 6-1432, effective July 18, 2008.
