Default damages won by Locklear Electric of Wood River in a proposed class action against two defendants who allegedly sent illegal faxed advertisements are not reflected in the case file two months after Madison County Circuit Judge Andreas Matoesian indicated he would enter them.

Locklear won a default judgment against Christopher Parks and American Business Lending last year in the 2008 case.

The suit is one of several proposed class actions Locklear has led in Madison and St. Clair
Counties over faxes it claims violate telecommunications laws.

Neither Parks nor American Business Lending entered appearances in the case.

Matoesian had been scheduled to enter the damages amount in the case March 4.

However, the suit's docket sheet and filings show no activity beyond that date.

No amount of damages is shown either.

Locklear had sought damages in excess of $50,000 and other relief.

Lanny Darr represents Locklear.

The suit is Madison case number 08-L-1131.
