Ex parte American Resources Insurance Co

In Ex parte American Resources Insurance Co., 663 So. 2d 932 (Ala. 1995) the Court issued a writ of mandamus directing the reinstatement of a default judgment that had been set aside by the trial court. 663 So. 2d at 936-37. Even that case is distinguishable. In that case, the trial court set aside its default judgment only after conducting a hearing on the Rule 60(b) motion for relief from judgment. Id. at 935. Thus, even after the hearing, the record failed to reflect evidence justifying relief from judgment pursuant to Rule 60(b). Id. at 936.
