Proceedings on default by respondent.
When a respondent has failed to answer a
charge at a hearing as provided by § 20-13-39 the Commission of Human Rights may enter his
default. For good cause shown, the commission may set aside an entry of default within ten days
after the date of the entry. If the respondent is in default, the commission may proceed to hear
testimony adduced upon behalf of the charging party. After hearing testimony, the commission may
enter any order the evidence warrants.
