IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT: 1. Default is entered against Cross-Defendants Newland Group, LLC, RB Group Development, Inc., and J.M.C. Contracting Corp. (collectively, the "Cross-Defendants") on all claims alleged against them by The Bank of New York Mellon ("BNY") as a result of their failure to answer or otherwise file any responsive pleading in this proceeding.
2. Judgment is entered in favor of BNY, and against Newland and RBGD on Count I of the Amended Answer, Affirmative Defenses, Counterclaim and Cross-claim of Interpleader by BNY Mellon, N.A. (the "Amended Answer and Counterclaims"), and any right, claim or interest that Newland and/or RBGD may have had against BNY arising from, or related to, the Policy, the Proceeds and/or the Disputed Funds, as those terms are defined in the Default Motion, is hereby extinguished and of no further force and effect.
3. Judgment is entered in favor of BNY, and against the Cross-Defendants and Builders, on all counts included in Count II of the Amended Answer and Counterclaims, and any right, claim or interest that Cross-Defendants may have had against BNY arising from, or related to, the Third Check, as that term is defined in the Default Motion, is hereby extinguished and of no futher force and effect.
4. The Clerk of Court (the "Clerk") is directed to release the Disputed Funds, as that term is defined in the Order Granting Motion to Interplead Funds, entered in the above-captioned proceeding on May 10, 2012, together with all accrued interest thereon, if any, to Builders Bank ("Builders") within ten business days of the entry of this order.
5.

6. The Disputed Funds constitute the exclusive source of recovery for Builders on the claims alleged against BNY in the above-captioned proceeding, and all claims and/or alleged right to recover amounts in excess of the Disputed Funds are waived by Builders.
