APOLLO CREDIT AGENCY, INC.,
By minute order [Doc. # 14, filed 9/12/2011] this matter was set for a settlement and
scheduling conference to occur on October 7, 2011, at 1:30 p.m. Counsel and party
representatives with full authority to settle the case were required to be present at the conference
in person. The plaintiff and her counsel appeared as ordered, but the defendant and its counsel
failed to appear. As a result, I entered an Order to Show Cause [Doc. # 15] commanding the
defendant to show cause why default pursuant to Rule 55(a) should not enter against it. The
defendant failed to respond to the Order to Show Cause.

The defendant’s failures to appear at the settlement and scheduling conference and failure to
respond to the Order to Show Cause constitute a failure to defend.

The Clerk of the Court is directed to enter a default pursuant to Rule 55(a), Fed.
R. Civ. P., against Apollo Credit Agency, Inc.
Dated October 26, 2011.
