Follow up: We appeared to put stipulation on record to settle $70K breach of contract case on record before judge for $45K with

Asked over 1 year ago - San Diego, CA

25K in quarterly installments for five years. Transcript of settlement is brief. Says if a quarterly payment is missed, 70K shown due & sought in case is reinstated & accelerated. D breached -1st payment late and wrong amount, 2d wrong amount, 3rd missed but D made it up though I objected & told D late sum was applied to reduce debt but didn’t rectify breach(s) & 70K due. Suppose to dismiss but didn’t because defaults. Case is pending. Can I file judgment form for $70 and attach the recorder’s transcript to enter judgment? Or a motion or trial? What do I tell D? Thanks again.
