Cruz v. Fagor Am., Inc., D048064

Grant of defendant's motion to set aside default and default judgment, due to ineffective service of summons and complaint, is reversed as plaintiff met all of the statutory requirements for effective service of process on a foreign corporation, the trial court erred in concluding that the judgment was void for lack of valid service of process, and defendant failed to present a satisfactory excuse for its failure to defend against the action and to failed to show that it acted with diligence in seeking to set aside the default.
