Motion for Default Judgment Filed in Graymont Suit

22 Apr

On April 21st, 2105, we filed a Motion for Default Judgment.  The Court Rules require the defendant to file a response to our original Complaint within 21 days of being served with that Complaint;  the 21-day clock stopped ticking on the 16th of April.  

According to the Rules, at least as I read them, the judge has no discretion in this matter –the language that appears on the Summons is unequivocal:  “If you fail to respond, judgment by default will be entered against you for the relief demanded in the complaint.”  The “relief demanded,” of course, is the issuance of a preliminary injunction barred the transfer of land to Graymont (the transfer of any “1836 Ceded Territory” to any entity will also be enjoined).

    I’ve worked in a law office. I studied the Michigan Court Rules a number of years ago. There is a way to calculate effective days that can be difficult even for the best attorneys. Here is a link to calculate future dates. http://courts.mi.gov/courts/coa/pages/time-calculator.aspx

    Good luck! Leslie
