UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
December 29, 2009
MICHAEL H. HOLLAND, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
PATRICIA FREEMYER, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Paul L. Friedman United States District Judge
ORDER AND JUDGMENT
The Court has before it plaintiffs' motion for entry of judgment by default. Plaintiffs' complaint and an original summons were served on defendant on September 18, 2009. An affidavit of that service has been filed with the Court. On October 27, 2009, the Clerk of the Court for the United States District Court for the District of Columbia declared that defendant -- who is not an infant or incompetent person -- is in default for failure to plead or otherwise defend this action.
Plaintiffs filed their motion for entry of judgment by default on November 11, 2009. Plaintiffs seek $8,808.56 for wrongful payments, interest and costs, plus post-judgment interest. On November 17, 2009, the Court issued an order for defendant to show cause by November 30, 2009, why a default judgment should not be entered in favor of plaintiffs. That date has passed without a response from the defendant. Plaintiffs' motion for default judgment will be granted. See FED. R. CIV. P. 55(b)(2). Accordingly, it is hereby
ORDERED that plaintiffs' motion for entry of judgment by default  is GRANTED; it is
FURTHER ORDERED that judgment be entered against defendant Patricia Freemyer in the principal amount of $6,845.40, plus interest of $1,557.16 and court costs in the amount of $406.00, for a total judgment amount of $8,808.56 plus post-judgment interest; and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that this case is DISMISSED and the Clerk of the Court shall remove it from the docket of the Court. This is a final appealable order. See FED. R. APP. P. 4(a).
