STEPHENS, d/b/a HALF TIME
Case No. 1:13cv174 SNLJ
MEMORANDUM and ORDER
This matter was set for trial on October 19, 2015. On October 15, 2015, plaintiff
advised the Court that the matter had been settled. Plaintiff advises that it accepted the
defendants’ offer to settle this matter for $7,000, which would be satisfied by receipt of
$3,000 paid at the rate of $125 per month. Plaintiff e-mailed settlement documentation,
including a consent judgment, to defendant Lana Stephens. Plaintiff’s counsel advises
that he has left numerous telephone messages and sent e-mails to defendant Lana Stephens,
but that she has not responded.
Plaintiff thus filed a motion to enforce settlement on November 4, 2015 (#26).
Defendants have not responded to the motion in any way, and the time for doing so has
passed. Defendant asks the Court to enter the judgment agreed to by the parties and award
plaintiff an additional $1,000 for attorneys’ fees for the costs of filing the motion.
Defendant shall be ordered to show cause why this Court should not enter the
agreed-upon judgment with the addition of the $1,000 in attorneys’ fees. Failure to
respond shall result in entry of judgment plus attorneys’ fees requested by plaintiff.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that defendants shall show cause why this Court
should not enter the judgment against defendants as set forth in plaintiff’s motion to
enforce settlement, along with an award of $1,000 in attorneys’ fees, no later than
December 22, 2015.
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS COURT’S ORDER WILL RESULT
IN IMMEDIATE ENTRY OF JUDGMENT AGAINST DEFENDANTS AS SET
FORTH IN PLAINTIFF’S MOTION TO ENFORCE SETTLEMENT.
day of December, 2015.
