UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff, v. Case No. 10-C-187 THOMAS M. HENSON, Defendant. ORDER The United States has moved for summary judgment as to Defendant Thomas Henson’s unpaid taxes and for foreclosure on his property. Henson has stipulated to liability for more than $420,000 in unpaid taxes from years 1991-93 and 1997-2003. (Dkt. # 33.) In response to the government’s motion for summary judgment, Henson now argues that the earlier period of unpaid taxes is not subject to judgment because the ten-year statute of limitations period has lapsed. As the government notes, however, that period did not begin running until the year 2000, and this lawsuit was brought within the ten-year period. (Dkt. # 45.) Henson’s other objections are based on a “power of attorney” and / or his belief that he should be allowed to negotiate a different settlement with the IRS. In short, however, he has not contested the essential facts that underlie the government’s motion, nor has he shown that foreclosure is not a proper remedy. The government’s motion is therefore GRANTED. The government should file a proposed order for entry of judgment. SO ORDERED this 9th day of December, 2011. s/ William C. Griesbach William C. Griesbach United States District Judge
