S&B successfully overturned a default judgment that had been entered against its clients. According to handling attorney Eric Schiffer, "when our clients first came to us and showed us the substantial default judgment that had been entered against them, we made every effort to have the trial court judge reverse the judgment. When those efforts were unsuccessful, we had no choice but to appeal." The Second Appellate District, Division Five unanimously ruled that the default judgment be reversed in its entirety, and that S&B's clients be given the opportunity to defend themselves. “Cases should be decided on their merits, and not on technicalities. This was a great result for our clients, and we hope they can rest a little easier knowing that this judgment will no longer be lurking,” noted Eric Schiffer.
