Citing North v. Ostrow, it held the application to be an untimely attempt to vacate an order entered upon default. Noting the Dec. 19, 1997 service of the order of default, with notice of entry, on respondent’s attorney, the court found that the time for relief under �5015(a)(1) expired one year after service. It additionally concluded that neither a reasonable excuse for the default nor a meritorious claim were advanced.

It also observed that the attorney failed to pursue and prosecute claims in the arbitral forum for more than six years.
