Broussard v. Autovest, LLC

Full title: ANGELA MARION BROUSSARD v. AUTOVEST, LLC, AS ASSIGNEE OF U.S. AUTO SALES.

Court: Court of Appeals of Georgia

Case no: A24D0012

Date published: Aug 14, 2023

Fact:

Autovest, LLC filed suit against Angela Marion Broussard, resulting in a final order and default judgment entered by the trial court on June 22, 2023. Broussard filed a motion to set aside and vacate the judgment, which was denied on July 11, 2023. Broussard then filed a timely application for discretionary appeal from the trial court’s June 22 order.

Issue:

The issue in this case is whether Broussard’s application for discretionary appeal should be granted, considering that the trial court’s June 22 order, which Broussard seeks to appeal, is subject to direct appeal as it involves a default judgment.

Decision:

The court granted Broussard’s application for discretionary appeal, as the trial court’s June 22 order is subject to direct appeal. Broussard was given ten days from the date of the order to file a notice of appeal with the trial court. If a notice of appeal had already been filed, a second notice was not required. The clerk of the trial court was directed to include a copy of the order in the record transmitted to the Court of Appeals.
