All parties areÊrequired to appear at a judgement hearing. A plaintiff who doesn't at the hearing could see their case dismissed by the judge, and a default judgement may go to the defendant. The opposite can also occur with the Plaintiff getting theÊ default judgement is the defendant doesn't show up.
