Participating in Court Conferences Does Not Constitute Appearing in Litigation

A homeowner sought appellate relief from the trial court’s order denying her motion for relief from a default judgment and entry of foreclosure.  In Seleme v. JPMorgan Chase Bank, the Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court’s decision finding that though the homeowner participated in telephone conferences, she never appeared in the foreclosure matter or requested a settlement conference pursuant to Indiana Code section 32-30-10.5-8.5(c).  Therefore, the Court of Appeal’s held that default judgment was properly rendered.
