TERVEN'S DOOR SERVICE, INC. DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Richard Mills, U.S. District Judge
The Court now considers Plaintiffs' Motion for Default Judgment. Plaintiffs have duly served Defendant a copy of the Complaint and Defendant was summonsed on December 12, 2006. Defendant never answered or otherwise pled. Accordingly, U.S. Magistrate Judge Byron G. Cudmore entered default on January 22, 2007.
Plaintiffs now move the Court for default judgment. Having reviewed Plaintiffs' motion and the relevant case materials, the Court finds that a Complaint was duly filed and served upon Defendant. Because Defendant failed to answer or otherwise plead within the statutory time frame, Plaintiffs are entitled to default judgment.
ERGO, Plaintiffs' Motion for Default Judgment (d/e 7) is ALLOWED.
Defendant is ORDERED to pay Plaintiffs $1,215.26 for health and welfare and various fringe benefit contributions, $2,143.25 in attorneys fees and costs pursuant to 29 U.S.C. §1132(g)(2).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
