MEMORANDUM DECISION AND ORDER
Before the Court is Plaintiffs' unopposed Motion for Summary Judgment (Dkt. 22). For the reasons set forth below, the Court will grant the Motion.
Plaintiffs filed a Motion for Summary Judgment on November 15, 2011, and the matter was set for hearing on January 26, 2012. Defendants did not respond to Plaintiffs' Motion, but filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection on December 14, 2011, Case No. 11-42011-JDP. The parties stipulated to Relief from Stay, and the Court entered an Order Granting Relief from Stay to Liquidate Claim on June, 26, 2012.
Plaintiff abandoned their Second Claim for Relief for Breach of Fiduciary Duty against Defendants Jerry and Judy Wellard, and the Court entered an order granting Plaintiffs' motion to dismiss those defendants.
Plaintiffs now move the Court to enter judgment finding Defendant Idaho Iron Inc., liable for certain benefits contributions pursuant to E.R.I.S.A. Plaintiff's November 15, 2011 Summary Judgment Motion sought judgment in the amount of $236,892.30. Pl's Br. at 14, Dkt. 15-2. Plaintiffs' have since received additional payments from Idaho Iron in the amount of $15,403.86 and the amount now owing is $221,488.44. Plaintiffs request judgment in the amount of $221,488.44. In accordance with defense counsel's representation to Plaintiffs, Defendant Idaho Iron, Inc. has not opposed the motion for summary judgment. Because Idaho Iron does not appear to dispute that it owes Plaintiffs $221,488.44, Plaintiffs motion for summary judgment will be granted.
IT IS ORDERED THAT Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgment (Dkt. 22) is GRANTED.
