06/28/2001Case Status Update Submitted for Decision.
12/17/2001Order/DispositionalFiled Order of Affirmance. We determine that the district court did not abuse its discretion in entering the default judgment without a prove-up hearing. "ORDER the judgment of the district court AFFIRMED." fn1[Collins also contends that the entry of default against him was error because he had conceded liability. The record reflects, however, that his answer was stricken as a discovery sanction under NRCP 37 for his failure to comply with an order compelling his appearance at a deposition. We conclude that upon the striking of the answer, the entry of default was appropriate under NRCP 55(a).] Young and Leavitt, JJ. Agosti, J., dissenting. SNPO2-CY/DA/ML 01-21139
