Mr. & Mrs. Cornblum entered into a consent judgment with Plaintiff for a $225,000 from default on a home equity line. The Consent Order, despite being signed by both parties and the lawyer, identified as “Attorney for the Defendants”, used the singular “Defendant” throughout the body of the agreement. The Cornblums later asserted, in contesting a execution, that it was ineffective.
The Court of Appeals rejected this as the error was clearly clerical and awarded the sanctions against the Coleman for a frivolous appeal.
