From the judge’s decision:
“Ordinarily, the Court would enter a default order against a party that fails to participate in any stage of a
proceeding. Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. 616-1-2-.30(1) and (5). Nonetheless, despite the Defendant’s failure to appear, Plaintiffs asked this Court to decide the case on the merits
of their arguments and evidence. The Court granted Plaintiffs’ request.”
