Village of Butler v. Levarn Clay, 2009AP1763, Dist II, 1/13/10

court of appeals decision (1-judge; ineligible for publication)

Sanctions – Defendant’s Failure to Appear – Default Judgment
Court not empowered to enter default judgment in civil claim where defendant appears by counsel but not in person; odd discussion of “puerile” “tactic of some traffic defense lawyers to make the government prove identity without the defendant being in the courtroom.”
