IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
December 27, 2010
CENTRAL LABORERS' PENSION, WELFARE AND ANNUITY FUNDS, PLAINTIFFS,
MIA CONSTRUCTION CO., INC., AND ISAAC P. AUSTIN, INDIVIDUALLY, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, Chief Judge:
Before the Court is Plaintiffs' Motion for Default Judgment (Doc. 8) against Defendants. In examining the Motion and supporting memorandum (Doc. 9), the Court notes Plaintiffs have not meet the requirements set forth by its Local Rule 55.1.
Local Rule 55.1(a) requires the moving party to: (1) "give notice of the entry of default to the defaulting party by regular mail sent to the last known address of the defaulted party," and (2) "certify to the Court that notice has been sent." Further, Local Rule 55.1(b) requires that the motion seeking default judgment "shall contain a statement that a copy of the motion has been mailed to the last known address of the party from whom default judgment is sought. If the moving party knows, or reasonably should know, the identity of an attorney thought to represent the defaulted party, the motion shall also state that a copy has been mailed to that attorney."
Accordingly, the Court hereby allows Plaintiffs leave to file a supplement to their motion to demonstrate full compliance with Local Rule 55.1. This supplement shall be filed by January 10, 2011. Failure to do sowill result in a denial of the motion.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
