JOINT MOTION FOR ENTRY OF JUDGMENT
IN FAVOR OF PLAINTIFF CITIBANK, N.A. AND AGAINST
DEFENDANTS CHARLES XIAO QING HAN AND MINDY MINGXIA LIU
Plaintiff Citibank, N.A. and Defendants Charles Xiao Qing Han ("Han") and Mindy
Mingxia Liu ("Liu") jointly move for the entry of a Consent Judgment, and in support thereof
state as follows:
On January 1 1 , 20 1 7, Plaintiff filed its Complaint (the "Complaint") including a
Count for breach of Note and Loan Agreement against Defendant Interface Protein Technology
Inc., and a Count for breach of Guarantee against each of Defendants Han and Liu relating to the
Loan more particularly described in the Complaint.
Defendants filed their Answer and Defenses to the Complaint on March 7. 2017
reflecting little at issue between the parties respecting the Loan described in the Complaint.
On July 5, 2017, during a status hearing before the Court, counsel for Defendants
informed Plaintiff and the Court that Defendants wish to resolve this proceeding and their
respective obligations on the Loan and Loan Documents described in the Complaint by entry of a
Consent Judgment. Accordingly, the Case was set for status hearing on August 9, 2017 to enable
the parties to submit a Consent Judgment for this Court's consideration.
On July 16, 2017 (the "Petition Date"), Defendants Han and Liu filed a voluntary
petition for relief under Chapter 7 of Title 11 of the United States Code (the "Bankruptcy
Code"), in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern
Division (the "Bankruptcy Court"), commencing a case designated as In re Charles Xiaoqing
Han and Mindy Mingxia Liu, Case No. i 7-2 1 1 54 (the "Bankruptcy Case").
Pursuant to a Joint Motion for Entry of Consent Judgment filed with this Court on
behalf of Plaintiff and Defendants on August 3, 2017, this Court entered a Consent Judgment on
August 9, 2017, with respect to the Loan, the Note and the Loan Agreement described in the
Complaint in favor of Plaintiff and against Defendant Interface Protein Technology Inc.
Following entry of the Consent Judgment against Defendant Interface Protein
Technology Inc., the Court continued this Case for status hearing to enable the Bankruptcy Case
to develop further, and in particular, to enable a "Section 341" Meeting ofCreditors to transpire.
On October 20, 2017, the Bankruptcy Court dismissed the Bankruptcy Case for
"unreasonable delay". A Section 341 Meeting of Creditors was never held in the Bankruptcy
Counsel to Han and Liu notes that he reached out to them to verify their position
in this case and was advised that they plan to reinstitute a bankruptcy proceeding. Counsel to
Defendants is unaware of any new bankruptcy proceeding or defense to entry of a Judgment on
the Counts asserted in the Complaint against Han and Liu for breach of contract as proposed by
The parties have agreed to the entry of a Consent Judgment with respect to the
Guarantees described in the Complaint in favor of Plaintiff and against Defendants Han and Liu.
in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A. A separate copy of a proposed Judgment respecting
Han and Liu is being submitted to the Court concurrently with the filing of this Motion at
Proposed_Order_Blakeyilnd.uscourts.gov in compliance with the Court's standing order.
For these reasons, Plaintiff Citibank, N.A. and Defendants Han and Liu respectfully
request that this Court enter the proposed Consent Judgment attached hereto as Exhibit A.
