EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
JAMES DICKERSON, et al.,
RAVEN INDUSTRIES, INC.,
WINTERS INSTRUMENTS, INC.,
Third Party Defendant.
Case No. 2:15 CV 90 CDP
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before the Court on third-party plaintiff Raven Industries’ motion
for default judgment. On July 6, 2016, the Court ordered Raven to file appropriate
motions for entry of default and default judgment against third-party defendant Winters
Instruments for its failure to timely answer or otherwise respond to third-party complaint.
. Raven complied with the Court’s Order, and on July 25, 2016, the Clerk of Court
entered default against Winters on Raven’s third-party complaint. However, upon review
the Court concludes that default judgment against Winters should not be entered on the
third-party complaint unless and until the Dickerson plaintiffs’ claims are resolved.
Therefore, the Court will deny the motion for default judgment without prejudice at this
time, subject to being refiled by Raven at the conclusion of the case or when otherwise
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that third-party plaintiff’s motion for default
judgment  is denied without prejudice to being refiled, if necessary, at the conclusion
of the case or as otherwise appropriate.
