IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
GEORGE B. LANNOM,
QA3 FINANCIAL CORP. and
This matter is before the court on the Affidavit of Robert V. Cornish, Jr., in
Support of Court’s Entry of Default Judgment Against Defendant QA3 Financial
Corp. (Filing No. 20), which the court construes as a motion filed by Plaintiff, George
B. Lannom, for entry of default judgment pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure
55(b). The record reflects that a default was entered against said Defendant by the
clerk of the court on March 31, 2017 (Filing No. 19).
Upon review of the complaint, the court finds that Plaintiff’s claim against
Defendant QA3 Financial Corp. is for a sum certain of $200,000.00.1 The court
previously entered a default judgment against the other Defendant, QA3, LLC, which
is alleged to be jointly and severally liable with Defendant QA3 Financial Corp. for
such sum.2 The judgment therefore will reflect Defendants’ joint and several liability.
Although Plaintiff also prays for pre-judgment interest and attorney’s fees, no
showing has been made with respect to those items. Consequently, any claim for prejudgment interest or attorney’s fees against Defendant QA3 Financial Corp. is deemed
Default judgment against Defendant QA3, LLC, was entered by the court on
September 19, 2016 (Filing No. 15), while Defendant QA3 Financial Corp. was in
bankruptcy and all proceedings against it were automatically stayed. The stay was
lifted on March 31, 2017, after the bankruptcy case was closed (Filing No. 18).
IT IS ORDERED:
A default judgment shall be entered by separate document in favor of
Plaintiff and against Defendant QA3 Financial Corp. in the sum of
$200,000.00 plus taxable costs and post-judgment interest as provided
by law. Defendant QA3 Financial’s liability to Plaintiff shall be joint
and several with that of Defendant QA3, LLC.
Upon entry of judgment, the clerk of the court shall proceed to close the
court file for statistical purposes.
DATED this 25th day of July, 2017.
BY THE COURT:
