The Wood River electric company that won a default judgment in a proposed class action over faxed advertisements is asking to push back a hearing that would determine how much money it has won.
Plaintiff Locklear Electric filed its move to continue the Feb. 4 hearing on damages Jan. 14.
The hearing has now been set for 9 a.m. on Feb. 4.
According to its motion, Locklear's attorney Lanny Darr will be in Miami that day at the American Association for Justice Winter Convention.
Locklear won the default judgment against defendants American Business Lending and Christopher Parks last year.
Locklear claims that the defendants violated federal law when they faxed unwanted ads to the company and others like it.
The suit is one of a number of faxed ad class actions Locklear has spearheaded in recent years in both Madison and St. Clair counties.
Neither Parks nor American Business Lending has entered an appearance in the case.
Madison County Circuit Judge Andreas Matoesian presides.
The case is Madison case number 08-L-1131.
