Safety National Casualty Corp. v. Village of Cahokia

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS


October 16, 2009

SAFETY NATIONAL CASUALTY CORPORATION, PLAINTIFF,
v.
VILLAGE OF CAHOKIA, DEFENDANT.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge

MEMORANDUM AND ORDER

This matter is before the Court on plaintiff's Motion for Default Judgment (Doc. 9). This request is premature in light of the fact that the Clerk of Court has not entered default pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 55(a) against the defendant. Only after default has been entered pursuant to Rule 55(a) against a party is a default judgment under Rule 55(b) appropriate. For this reason, the Court DENIES without prejudice the plaintiff's Motion for Default Judgment (Doc. 9).

IT IS SO ORDERED.
