PETER LOO, and WILMER CRESPO,
) CIVIL ACTION NO. 08-00562-KD-N
ST. MOBILE AEROSPACE ENGINEERING, )
Pursuant to the Court’s Order dated November 29, 2011 (doc. 62), plaintiffs’
counsel has responded (doc. 63) to the post-judgment motion to compel (Doc. 61) filed
by the defendant, ST Mobile Aerospace Engineering, Inc. (“MAE”). Plaintiffs’ counsel
concedes that MAE’s motion is due to be granted. (Doc. 63 at ¶ 1). Counsel further
concedes that the costs taxed against his clients in the amount of $9,971.50 (doc. 56) is
“unquestionably due to be paid” and that he has “repeatedly apprised clients of the cost
due . . . [and] that costs need to be paid.” (Doc. 63 at ¶ 2). Although also admitting that
MAE might be entitled to attorney’s fees and costs associated with the present motion to
compel, counsel requests that the Court not impose additional costs or fees because such
“will make the collection of payment more difficult and only further delay the full
satisfaction of the amount owed Defendant.” (Id. at ¶ 3). Although permitted by the
Court, MAE opted not to reply to plaintiffs’ response.
Upon consideration of the motion, plaintiffs’ response and all other pertinent
portions of the record, it is ORDERED that MAE’s motion to compel (doc. 61) be
GRANTED as follows:

Court at 10:00 a.m. on Friday March 23, 2012 in Courtroom 3B of the United States
Courthouse, 113 St. Joseph Street, Mobile, Alabama, to SHOW CAUSE why further
sanctions should not be imposed for failure to comply with the Court’s orders.
Plaintiffs shall, in addition to the costs previously taxed by this Court (doc.
56), PAY to MAE the reasonable fees and costs incurred in connection with this motion
