If their answer is sticken you have won on liability and just need a damages trial or an inquest.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been doing criminal defense work for over 16 years. I was named to the Super Lawyers list as one of the top attorneys in New York for 2012 and 2013. No more than 5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers. Martindale-Hubbell has given me its highest rating - AV Preeminent - in the areas of Criminal Law, Personal Injury, and Litigation. According to Martindale-Hubbell”AV Preeminent is a significant rating accomplishment - a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence." Fewer than 8% of attorneys achieve an AV Preeminent rating. I also have the highest ranking – “superb” – on Avvo.

Your question is not clear. Was the answer stricken and then the defendants moved to vacate the default and were successful, thus resulting in the 2nd trial date? If so, the default is forgiven, the case is back and you need to prosecute it. What contempt are the defendants guilty of? Did they disobey another Court order? You will benefit greatly in retaining a lawyer. Too many moving pats here to proceed pro se.Ask a similar question
