Highlight

A district court in its discretion may allow amendment of a proof of service at any time.
To establish a basis for relief from a district court's denial of a motion for relief from a default judgment, a party must show the district court abused its discretion.
Although under some circumstances the amount of money at stake might be a legitimate factor for a court to consider on a motion to vacate a default judgment, this factor is not enough in the absence of a good excuse for the default.
