IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
TENNESSEE FARMERS MUTUAL
TIM W. SMITH PROPERTIES, LLC, et al.
Pending is Plaintiff Tennessee Farmers Mutual Insurance Company’s (“Tennessee
Farmers”) Motion for Default Judgment (Doc. No. 42) against Defendants Kenneth D. Ramirez,
Robin S. Ramirez, and General Casualty Company of Wisconsin. Plaintiff’s earlier motion for
default judgment was denied without prejudice until the case was decided on the merits as to the
non-defaulting defendants.1 All non-defaulting parties have settled,2 and Plaintiff again seeks
default judgment against the defaulting parties.
Under Rule 55(a), the party seeking default judgment must have the Clerk of the Court
enter the default by showing that the opposing party has failed to plead or otherwise defend.
After default has been entered by the Clerk, the moving party may, under Rule 55(b), seek entry
of judgment on the default.
Plaintiff’s Motion for Default Judgment is referred to the Clerk of the Court for
consideration of entry of a Clerk’s default.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 3rd day of April, 2012.
