1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 BYRON CHAPMAN, 8 Plaintiff, 9 10 Northern District of California United States District Court 11 12 vs. SCHELLVILLE GRILL, et al., Case No.: 16-CV-7324 YGR ORDER ADOPTING IN PART MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S REPORT AND RECOMMENDATION; GRANTING MOTION FOR DEFAULT JUDGMENT Dkt. Nos. 12 & 18 Defendants. 13 14 15 The Court has reviewed Magistrate Judge Laporte’s Report and Recommendation to Grant In 16 Part and Deny in Part Plaintiff’s Motion for Entry of Default Judgment (Dkt. No. 18), to which 17 defendants filed no objections. 18 On June 26, 2017, plaintiff objected to Magistrate Judge Laporte’s recommendation that 19 plaintiff not be awarded the costs associated with providing chambers copies of plaintiff’s moving 20 and reply papers as required by the Court. (Dkt. No. 20.) Plaintiff seeks $200 to reimburse the costs 21 of providing chambers copies of plaintiff’s motion for default judgment (Dkt. No. 12, “Motion”) and 22 reply brief. (Dkt. No. 14, “Reply”.) Plaintiff’s counsel represents that plaintiff spent $15 on printing 23 and $100 apiece on rush messaging services for its Motion and Reply. (Dkt. No. 20-2, Exhs. A, B.) 24 Pursuant to Civil Local Rule 5.1(e)(7)(A), “[c]ourtesy copies of motions and oppositions filed 25 under Civil L.R. 7-3 . . . shall be mailed via first class mail to the Clerk’s Office on the same day the 26 documents are electronically filed. Courtesy copies of replies to motions filed under Civil L.R. 7-3 27 must be delivered to the Clerk’s Office no later than noon on the court day following the day that the 28 reply was electronically filed.” 1 The Court thus finds that compliance with Civil L.R. 7-3 did not require rush messaging. 2 Accordingly, plaintiff’s objection to Magistrate Judge Laporte’s recommendation not to award the 3 $200 for messaging services for the Motion is OVERRULED. However, the Court GRANTS the 4 plaintiff $20 to reimburse the costs of printing the Motion and Reply, and sending these documents 5 via first class mail. 6 7 8 9 The Court finds the Report correct, well-reasoned and thorough, and adopts it in all other respects. Accordingly, and for the reasons set forth in the Report, Plaintiff’s Motion for Default Judgment (Dkt. No. 12) is GRANTED. The Judgment shall be entered by separate Order. Northern District of California This terminates Docket Nos. 12 & 18. 11 United States District Court 10 IT IS SO ORDERED. 12 13 Dated July 6, 2017 _______________________________________ YVONNE GONZALEZ ROGERS UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT JUDGE 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
