This matter having been commenced by the filing of a complaint on September 26, 2002, and the defendant Dora Cooper having failed to interpose a timely answer to the complaint or otherwise move in this proceeding, and the plaintiff having sought permission to move for a default judgment against defendant Dora Cooper, and the Court having determined that an investigation of the factual basis of the allegations of the complaint herein pursuant to Fed.R.Civ. P. 55(b)(2) is appropriate, it is hereby ORDERED, that the plaintiff may make a motion for a default judgment against defendant Dora Cooper; and it is further ORDERED, that the plaintiff's motion shall be accompanied by evidence, in admissible form, of such facts as it would have proffered to meet its burden of proof on its direct case had a trial been held in this action; and it is further ORDERED, that such motion for default judgment shall be served on the defendant Dora Cooper and shall be accompanied by copies of the Clerk's Certificate and of proof of service of the summons and complaint and the motion for default judgment as provided by the undersigned's Individual Practices Rules; and it is further ORDERED, that said motion shall be briefed in accordance with the schedule set forth in Local Civil Rule 6.1 and will be taken on submission unless otherwise directed by the Court; and it is further
ORDERED, that plaintiff shall serve a copy of this Order on defendant Dora Cooper and file proof of such service within ten (10) days from the date hereof.
