English term or phrase:Default Order
Can you help me, please.
I am looking for an appropriate verb in the following context:
Does a Magistrate REACHES or PASSES a Default Order?
Explanation: JEC Magistrate Benchbook Section 1.3-2 Default Judgment
Magistrate and Metro Court ... a. enters an order setting aside the entry of the
default judgment; and. b. proceeds as if there had been no default judgment ...

Plaintiff appealed from an Order of Default entered by the Magistrate Division,
... It would be imprudent for a magistrate to enter an order of default ... www.publications.ojd.state.or.us/TC4257.htm
Explanation: this is usually the term used in the UK, e.g.: http://www.parliament.the-stationery-office.co.uk/pa/cm20020...
(5) Where a magistrates' court has power to make a default order, it may, if it thinks it expedient to do so, postpone the making of the order until such time and on such conditions (if any) as it thinks just.
But context pending, the verb you are looking may well be "magistrate applies a DO"
