Meaning of order
« on: Oct 06, 2006, 09:49:25 AM »
12 count Contempt filed against NCP in early June;  30 days given to respond and retain council. Status set for mid July.

Mid July NCP claims to have lost their job. NCP found in default for want of answer. An order of default entered instanter entered.  NCP ordered to appear at next hearing or body attachment will be entered.

What does  “order of default entered instanter” mean in laymans terms?

Just that the NCP has been found in contempt, absent a showing of "good cause" for failing to appear at the prior hearing. "Instanter" means "without delay."
