Civil Procedure — default judgment — excusable neglect

This appeal involves a business dispute between Cindy Le and Kwan Mei Tjoe. Le sold a restaurant business to Tjoe and rented to Tjoe the space to operate that business. Several disputes arose, and Le evicted Tjoe. Initially, Le sued in small claims court for eviction. When Tjoe counter-claimed, the matter was moved to circuit court. Le’s claim was dismissed, and default judgment and damages were awarded to Tjoe. Subsequently, Tjoe moved for additional damages, and Le moved for relief from judgment under Wis. Stat. § 806.07. The circuit court awarded Tjoe $50,000 in additional damages and denied Le’s motion for relief from judgment. It is these two latter decisions that Le challenges on appeal. We affirm the circuit court. Not recommended for publication in the official reports.
