Case No. 15-cv-4019
FIKES TRUCK LINE, LLC
Before the Court is a Motion for Order to Garnishee BancorpSouth Bank (“BancorpSouth”), filed
by Plaintiff Zurich American Insurance Company. (ECF No. 68). No party has filed a response or
objection to the motion. Plaintiff filed its Complaint against Defendant on February 13, 2015. (ECF No.
1). The parties subsequently informed the Court that a settlement had been reached in the matter. On
October 29, 2015, the Court entered an Order dismissing the case pursuant to the terms of the settlement
agreement. (ECF No. 16). Plaintiff then filed applications for Writs of Garnishment, as the total amount
of the judgment had yet to be satisfied. (ECF No. 37).
On May 24, 2016, Plaintiff issued a Writ of Garnishment as to BancorpSouth. (ECF No. 65).
BancorpSouth filed an answer, stating that it is holding funds owed to Defendant in the amount of $26.60.
(ECF No. 67). Plaintiff requests that the Court direct BancorpSouth to pay $26.60 to the Plaintiff and
discharge BancorpSouth of further liability on the writ upon delivery of payment to Plaintiff.
Upon review, the Court finds that the Motion for Order to Garnishee (ECF No. 68) should be and
hereby is GRANTED. Garnishee BancorpSouth is hereby ordered to pay $26.60 to Zurich American
Insurance Company and deliver the payment to the Plaintiff’s attorney within fourteen (14) days of the
date of this Order. Upon payment of said amount, BancorpSouth shall be discharged from all liability
on Plaintiff’s Writ of Garnishment.
IT IS SO ORDERED, this 15th day of August, 2016.
