UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI
JOE HAND PROMOTIONS, INC.,
Case No. 4:12CV1730 CDP
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before me on plaintiff’s motion for default judgment. The
Clerk of the Court entered default against defendant for failure to file an answer or
other responsive pleading as required by Fed. R. Civ. P. 12 on December 12, 2012.
Defendant now seeks statutory damages under 47 U.S.C. § 605(e)(3)(C)(i)(II) in
the amount of $10,000.00, and enhanced damages under 47 U.S.C. § 605(e)(3)(ii)
in the amount of $50,000.00. Having reviewed the motion and supporting
materials, I find that plaintiff is entitled to the requested statutory damages of
$10,000.00, but that the amount of enhanced damages sought is excessive. Using
my discretion, I will award $10,000.00 in statutory damages, $5,000.00 in
enhanced statutory damages, and the full amount of the attorneys’ fees and costs
sought in the amount of $1,500.00.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff’s motion for default judgment
[#10] is granted in part only to the extent set out above, and is denied in all other
A separate Judgment in accordance with this Memorandum and Order
is entered this same date.
