Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Civil Procedure — default judgment — excusable neglect
Integrity Construction Group, Inc. (Integrity) appeals from a default judgment entered after the circuit court struck Integrity’s answer, which was filed ten days late. Integrity argues that service of the complaint was not made properly on its registered agent, since the process server asked for the corporation’s “owner,” and that the late answer should stand due to excusable neglect or extraordinary circumstances. The circuit court found that there was no excusable neglect, and that the circumstances that Integrity argues were extraordinary did not justify its failure to file a timely answer. We affirm the judgment of the circuit court. This opinion will not be published.
