UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
1550-60 FAIRVIEW CORPORATION,
Case No. 07-13770
ADAM COHEN, et al.,
ORDER REJECTING REQUESTS FOR A WRIT OF GARNISHMENT
GP Collections, which is not a party to this action, submits eight requests for a
writ of garnishment against a Defendant’s bank accounts.
Under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 69, state law, in this case, Michigan Court
Rule 3.101(D), governs a request for a writ of garnishment. See Uhl v. Komatsu Forklift
Co., Ltd., 466 F.Supp.2d 899, 911-12 (E.D. Mich. 2006); Schram v. Carlucci, 41 F.Supp.
36 (E.D. Mich. 1941). MCR 3.101(D) requires a plaintiff or her agent to submit with a
request for a writ of garnishment a verified statement confirming a judgment against the
defendant, an exact amount unpaid, and a reason to expect that the proposed
garnishee is subject to garnishment.
At least three defects in GP Collections’s requests preclude the issuance of writs
of garnishment. First, the requests include no verified statement. Second, nothing in
the requests establishes that GP Collections proceeds as Plaintiff’s agent. Third, in the
requests, GP Collections improperly lists itself as Plaintiff’s attorney. Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that the requests for a writ of garnishment, attached to this
order but not otherwise docketed, are REJECTED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
