IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
August 24, 2009
ATRELLA R. REYNOLDS, PLAINTIFF,
THE DIVISION OF AERONAUTICS, A UNIT OF THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, SUSAN SHEA, TERRISSA LASHMETT, JAMES F. DEVEREUX, AND VICKIE STOUT, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Murphy, District Judge
Plaintiff, Atrella Reynolds, believes she is entitled to a default judgment against each defendant because they were served on July 13, 2009, and their response was due August 3, 2009.
Reynolds has not filed a return of service, so the Court has no way of knowing the exact date (or manner) of service. Nonetheless, Defendants have appeared through counsel and asked for more time to answer, and, on August 7, 2009, the Court extended the deadline for Defendants' response to August 26, 2009 (see Docs. 3, 4). For this reason, Defendants are not in default.
The motion for default judgment (Doc. 5) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
G. Patrick Murphy United States District Judge
