Default Judgment Requires Damages Prove-Up

Posted in Local Rules

Brown-Younger v. Lulu.com, No. 12 C 1979, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. June 15, 2012) (Shadur, Sen. J.).

Judge Shadur acknowledged that pro se plaintiff’s motion for default was timely in this copyright infringement case.  Defendant Barnes & Noble’s deadline to answer or otherwise plead had passed, but plaintiff had not provided a prove-up of damages.  The Court, therefore, sought plaintiff’s proposed schedule and procedure for the prove-up.
