Defendant Legacy Land & Development, LLC and Defendant Escapes Acquisition Company,
LLC (Doc. 309); and Plaintiff’s Motion to Submit Newly Discovered Evidence (Doc. 311).

1 As to Defendants Legacy Land & Development, LLC, and Escapes Acquisition Company, LLC,
pursuant to Rule 55(b)(2) which provides: “the court may conduct hearings ...when, to enter or effectuate
[a default] judgment, it needs to: ... conduct an accounting...determine the amount of damages..establish
the truth of any allegation by evidence; or…investigate any other matter.” Fed.R.Civ.P. 55(b)(2). As to
individual defendants William J. Kearney and Dolores “Dee” Balliett, pursuant to Rule 54(b): "…any
order or other decision, however designated, that adjudicates fewer than all the claims or the rights and
liabilities of fewer than all the parties does not end the action as to any of the claims or parties and may be
revised at any time before the entry of a judgment adjudicating all the claims and all the parties' rights and
liabilities[.]” Fed.R.Civ.P. 54(b).
113 Saint Joseph St., Mobile, Alabama, 36602.2
Moreover, Defendants William J. Kearney, Dolores “Dee” Balliett, Legacy Land &
Development, LLC, and Escapes Acquisition Company, LLC are ORDERED to file any
Response in Opposition to Plaintiff’s Motions (Docs. 306, 309) on or before August 10, 2012.

mailing a copy of same (via certified mail return receipt) to the following addresses:3
-William J. Kearney, 631 South Orlando Avenue, Suite 400, Winter Park, FL,
-Dolores “Dee” Balliett, 631 South Orlando Avenue, Suite 400, Winter Park, FL,
-Legacy Land & Development, LLC, c/o Registered Agent, The Corporation

Further, Plaintiff is ORDERED to file on or before August 3, 2012 any and all evidence
in support of the $16,355.633.78 in damages as a Supplement4 to both the motion for damages
2 Because the only remaining issue before the Court is Plaintiff’s ability to recover damages against
certain of the defendants, the hearing will be held in lieu of the Final Pre-Trial Conference which – along
with the parties’ Joint Pretrial Document filing requirement -- is CANCELED.
3 It should be noted that the addresses for Legacy Land and Escapes Acquisition include addresses which
are different than those of record. These addresses were obtained via the Nevada Secretary of State
database. See http://nvsos.gov/sosentitysearch/CorpSearch.aspx (last visited 7/27/12). It appears that both
limited liability companies are defunct insofar as their business licenses have been revoked and all of the
officers resigned on 7/24/12. Nevertheless, the Court will make this last attempt to place these companies
on notice of these default and damage proceedings.
4 Plaintiff’s Certificate of Service on this filing shall include both sets of addresses for Defendants
Legacy Land & Development LLC and Escapes Acquisition Company, LLC (where the Complaint was
served and the Nevada company addresses).
(Doc. 306) and motion for default judgment (Doc. 309).
DONE and ORDERED this the 27th day of July 2012.
