Default Judgment

From lawbrain.com

Judgment entered against a party who has failed to defend against a claim that has been brought by another party. Under rules of Civil Procedure, when a party against whom a judgment for affirmative relief is sought has failed to plead (i.e., answer) or otherwise defend, the party is in default and a judgment by default may be entered either by the clerk or the court.
