I went to file for a default today and the clerk said that the defendant has responded to the court as to why the no show. I have to return to court tomorrow as the clerk cannot find out what was communicated to the court. ??? I was ready to settle this at mediation, and was wondering if it is up to the judge to decide to pardon him for whatever reason and reschedule the mediation. it would have to be a good reason/excuse for not showing up, right? I think it's just a delay tactic because his lawyer wanted to set a trial date for Sept 1 and I objected to that right away, due to the good advice I get here.
I'm sorry but "what now might happen?" is not a meaningful question. It's just too broad.
You should really rethink this, and if you have specific questions ask away. In view of the highly local nature of the proceedings you're describing, you'll need a lawyer from in or near Bullhead City, AZ, to answer them.
