An evidentiary hearing was set so that Mr. Bell could present evidence regarding his damages on the default judgment. The hearing was held on November 1, 2017.

ORDER - granting in part and denying in part 24 Motion for Extension of Time to File Response to 6/8/2018 re 24 First MOTION for Extension of Time to File Response to July 2, 2018 re 22 MOTION to Set Aside Default Judgment . The Court finds that Bell has failed to show good cause to allow him to depose Defendant Patrick and Christina Christy. The sworn affidavit testimony from Defendant Patrick and Christina Christy is more than sufficient for Bell to prepare a Response Brief to the Motion to Set Aside Default Judgment. Therefore, the Court grants in part and denies in part Bell's Motion for Extension of Time to File Response to Motion to Set Aside Default Judgment (Filing No. 24). If the default judgment is set aside, the parties will have ample time to engage in discovery. The Court is aware that Bell has a planned vacation/travels with his wife, and may need additional time to file his response. Bell is not permitted to depose Defendant Patrick and Christina Christy; however, the Court grants Bell additional time to file his Response Brief, which must be filed no later than Friday, June 8, 2018. Signed by Judge Tanya Walton Pratt on 5/11/2018. (NAD)
