  • Plaintiff's Motion for Default Judgement GRANTED: D.N.J

    In an unusual, but factually straightforward, case out of New Jersey, the court grants the Plaintiff's motion for default judgement for unpaid hospital services. The Plaintiff provided health care to a participant of the Defendant's Employee Welfare Benefit Plan, billed the plan administrator who instructed the Defendant to pay, but never received any funds. This suit followed, and the court entered into default judgement for the Plaintiff.

    The Court concludes that in the absence of any responsive pleading and based upon the facts alleged in the Complaint, the Defendants do not have a meritorious defense. Second, the Court finds that Plaintiff will suffer prejudice absent entry of default judgment as Plaintiff will have no other means of obtaining relief. Finally, the Court finds the Defendants acted culpably as they have been served with the Complaint, are not infants or otherwise incompetent, and are not individuals presently engaged in military service.
    The short opinion is attached below.
