GREATER ST. LOUIS CONSTRUCTION
LABORERS WELFARE FUND, et al.,
GREEN TRAC, LLC.,
Case No. 4:16 CV 169 RWS
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter is before me on plaintiffs’ motion for contempt. On March 23, 2016, I
entered a partial default judgment ordering defendant to provide plaintiffs delinquent reports for
the months of August 2014 to date. According to plaintiffs’ motion, defendant has failed and
refused to comply with the default order, and its time for doing has now expired. However,
plaintiffs’ motion contains no statement of what efforts, if any, plaintiffs’ counsel made to
contact defendant and arrange for production of these reports prior to filing this motion. As a
result, the motion will be denied without prejudice to being refiled, if necessary, after plaintiffs’
counsel makes appropriate efforts to obtain the reports without Court intervention. Such efforts
must include contacting defendant by telephone and certified mail. Any renewed motion shall be
accompanied by an affidavit of counsel setting forth the good faith efforts made to contact
defendant and resolve this issue without Court intervention, as well as a certification that this
Memorandum and Order was served upon defendant as ordered.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the motion for contempt  is denied without
prejudice to being refiled as set out above.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiffs’ counsel shall serve a copy of this
Memorandum and Order on defendant.
