A general maintenance and repair company that is suing Imperial Pacific International (CNMI) LLC to collect on unpaid services has asked the U.S. District Court for the NMI to deny IPI’s motion to set aside the default judgment in the case.
Winzy Corp., which claims that IPI owes it $162,925 for contracted services, wants IPI’s motion to be denied since IPI failed to provide a supplemental brief and a substantive defense against its claims by the May 3 deadline, which the court earlier imposed.
Winzy Corp., through lawyer Mark Scoggins, is now asking the court to vacate their May 14 hearing on the dispute as unnecessary and to now set a hearing on Winzy Corp.’s motion for default judgment.
Winzy Corp. sued IPI on Oct. 30, 2020, stating that IPI has not paid it for the supervision and consulting services it provided the Saipan casino. Winzy Corp. maintained that the two parties entered binding and enforceable contracts where Winzy Corp. “performed under the terms of the agreement in good faith, and in a good and workmanlike manner.” IPI, however, allegedly did not uphold their end of the contract, and owes Winzy Corp. $162,925.
If Winzy Corp.’s request for default judgment is approved, the company will be entitled to actual damages, pre- and post-judgment interest, attorney’s fees, and other relief.
