See also:act required by law either as a
See also:regular step in procedure or as being a
See also:duty imposed . Parties in an
See also:action may be in default as to procedure by failure to appear to the writ, or to take some other step, within the prescribed
See also:time . In such cases the opposing party gains some
See also:advantage by being allowed to sign
See also:judgment or otherwise . But as a
See also:rule, unless the party is much in default and is under a
See also:order to proceed, the
See also:penalty for default is by order to pay the
See also:costs occasioned: When there is default in complying with the terms of a judgment the remedy is by executing it by one of the processes admitted by the law . (See EXECUTION.) In the case of judgments in criminal or quasi-criminal cases, where a
See also:fine is imposed, it is in most cases legal and usual to order imprisonment if the fine is not paid or if the
See also:property of the
See also:defendant is insufficient to realize its amount . Default in compliance with a
See also:statute renders the defaulter liable to action by the
See also:person aggrieved or to
See also:indictment if the
See also:matter of command is of public concern, subject in either case to the qualification that the statute may limit the remedy for the default to some particular proceeding specifically indicated; and in some instances, e.g. in the case of
See also:local authorities, default in the execution of their public duties is dealt with administratively by a department of the
See also:government, and only in the last resort, if at all, by recourse to judicial tribunals .
