Hearn v. Howard, B208782

In a claim for legal malpractice, trial court's denial of defendant's motion to vacate entry of default and a default judgment against her on the complaint filed by the plaintiffs is affirmed as there is no basis to conclude that the trial court abused its discretion. However, the judgment is modified to omit $15,000 in attorney fees because that amount was not specified in the complaint.
