A woman seeks default judgment against a St. Clair County sports bar after the defendant failed to answer her suit alleging injuries from a fight.
Plaintiff Cindy Long filed a motion for default on March 7 through attorney Mark Scoggins of Crowder & Scoggins in Columbia, Ill.
She argues that defendant Schatze’s Sports Bar & Grill has failed to enter an appearance, answer or otherwise respond to the complaint, which was filed Nov. 13, 2018.
In her complaint, Long alleges that on Dec. 26, 2017, she was at the defendant’s Belleville property when a fight broke out. She claims she suffered serious and permanent injuries as a result of the fight.
She alleges the defendant failed to provide adequate security and safety measures to protect its patrons.
Long seeks a judgment in excess of $50,000, plus costs and all other relief the court deems just.
St. Clair County Circuit Judge Chris Kolker set a hearing for May 13 at 9 a.m.
