When the Court granted Sav-Rx's Motion for Default Judgment, the Court ordered Sav-Rx to schedule an evidentiary hearing to explain its entitlement to its requested statutory damages in the amount of $300,000.00, plus costs and fees. (Filing No. 49). Sav-Rx scheduled the evidentiary hearing for April 13, 2009. (Filing No. 50). On February 25, 2009, however, Sav-Rx submitted a Supplemental Brief in Support of Motion for Default Judgment and Award of Statutory Damages of $300,000.00 (Filing No. 51) to clarify its request for damages and obviate the need for an evidentiary hearing. The Court has reviewed Sav-Rx's Supplemental Brief and its prior submissions regarding damages and is satisfied that Sav-Rx is entitled to the relief requested pursuant to 17 U.S.C. 1117(c)(2) and 15 U.S.C. 1117(d). Defendant John Wichmann has failed to file an Answer or otherwise defend in a timely fashion, and a Default Judgment is therefore appropriate without the need for further evidentiary submissions or argument. ACCORDINGLY, IT IS ORDERED: 1. Defendant Wichmann is in default, and Default Judgment is entered against Defendant Wichmann, as follows: a. Judgment in favor of Sav-Rx and against Defendant Wichmann in the amount of $300,000.00, pursuant to 15 U.S.C. 1117(c)(2) and 15 U.S.C. 1117(d); b.
