This matter came before the court on February 19, 2010, for hearing of plaintiffs' motion for default judgment against defaulted defendant Sundar Bains. The court also considered defendant Bains' motion to continue the hearing of the default judgment motion. Herman A.D. Franck, V, Esq. appeared on behalf of plaintiffs Basant Sidhu and Sanjesh Singh, who were also present in court. Frank Epstein, Esq. was present on behalf of defaulted defendant Sundar Bains and stated his intention to file a notice of appearance and a motion to set aside entry of default on February 22, 2010.
For the reasons set forth on the record, the court denied plaintiffs' motion for default judgment without prejudice to the filing of a renewed and properly supported motion. The court also denied defendant Bains' motion to continue the hearing.
