Harris Building Group, Inc. v. Tennessee Electrical, Inc.
M2018-00499-COA-R3-CV

When the defendant failed to answer a petition for declaratory judgment, the plaintiff sought and obtained a default judgment.  The defendant moved to set aside the default judgment, arguing that it never received the motion for default judgment nor notice of the hearing date on the motion.  The trial court denied the defendant the requested relief, finding that the defendant’s failure to answer the petition until months after entry of the default judgment was willful.  Discerning no abuse of discretion, we affirm.
