FINAL ORDER OF GARNISHMENT: This matter is before the Court on the plaintiffs' calculations of each plaintiff's pro-rata share of the garnishee liability of St. Paul Fire and Marine Company a/k/a/ The Saint Paul Travelers Companies, Inc. ("St. Paul" or "garnishee"), Filing No. 854 in Sampson v. Schenk, No. 8:07cv155 ("Sampson") and Filing No. 802 in Livers v. Schenk, No. 8:08cv107 ("Livers"). There has been no response to the motion. The plaintiffs have unsatisfied judgments against David Kofoed (Sampson, Filing No. 783; Livers, Filing No. 727). The matter has been heard on plaintiffs' motions for money judgments and orders of garnishment (Sampson, Filing No. 838; Livers, Filing No. 789). The Court has determined that garnishee St. Paul is in possession of property of the judgment debtor in that a St. Paul policy provides coverage for Kofoed's acts (Sampson, Filing No. 853; Livers, Filing No. 801). Pursuant to the Memorandum and Order dated November 30, 2016, Filing No. 853 in Sampson and Filing No. 801 in Livers, IT IS ORDERED that garnishee St. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Company, also known as The Saint Paul Travelers Companies, Inc., shall pay into the court the sum of $5,000,000.00 to be paid to the plaintiffs as follows: $1,643,500.00 to plaintiff Nicholas Sampson and $3,356,500.00 to plaintiff Matthew Livers.
