My understanding is that entry of default prohibits defendants from defending the case anymore, and it is followed by a default judgment. However, a default judgment implies that defendants never defended, and a default judgment can be hard to collect on internationally. In our case, defendants defended for years, and then defaulted after discovery and the admission of quite a bit of evidence. So if we just get a default judgment, we are cheated to some extent, because we get a judgment that is less collectible. If I get an entry of default against defendants, can I then move for summary judgment and show the court that the evidence admitted so far is enough for summary judgment?
