St. Clair County Circuit Judge Chris Kolker awarded a credit union more than $60,000 in default judgment after two individuals failed to enter an appearance or respond to a suit alleging they failed to make payments on a loan.
On May 13, Kolker awarded plaintiff Anheuser-Busch Employees’ Credit Union $60,591.50 in damages and $509.15 in court costs.
He concluded that defendants Kyle Ishman and Karen Haywood are in default after they were duly and regularly served with process of summons but failed to appear or plead.
Anheuser-Busch Employees’ Credit Union filed its complaint on Jan. 25, alleging it executed a private education line of credit to Ishman and Haywood on July 8, 2011. However, the defendants are accused of defaulting on the loan by failing to make the required monthly payments.
As of Jan. 18, the defendants allegedly owe $60,591.50 on the loan.
The plaintiff was represented by Jessica Espar of Heavner Beyers & Mihlar LLC in Decatur.
