Entry of Appearance is Not a Responsive Pleading

On August 28, 2017, the Palmers were served with a summons and petition. The Palmers were being sued by the Irvins, who were seeking to void a quit claim deed that asserted to convey ownership of a parcel of land from the Irvin Trust to the Palmers. On September 14, 2017, the Palmers’ attorney filed an entry of appearance and requested an additional 30 days to respond to the petition. On October 23, 2017, the trial court entered a default judgment in favor of the Irvins because a responsive pleading had not been entered on behalf of the Palmers.
