ANALYSIS:

  1. Background & Discussion

On May 22, 2020, Plaintiff Western Surety Company (“Plaintiff”) filed a complaint for interpleader against Defendants BCA Construction, Inc. (“BCA”), Almir Halili (“Halili”), Rakesh Bhatt (“Bhatt”), and Clara Settji (“Settji”). An Answer was filed by Defendant Halili on June 26, 2020 and by Defendant Settji on July 1, 2020. Default was entered against Defendant Bhatt on August 5, 2020 and against Defendant BCA on August 12, 2020.

Plaintiff filed the instant Motion to Deposit by Stakeholder, for Discharge of Stakeholder, and Request for Attorney’s Fees (the “Motion”) on September 1, 2020. No oppositions were filed.

On February 3, 2021, Plaintiff filed an amendment to the Complaint, substituting Defendant Jean Pierre Chanbonpin (“Chanbonpin”) for Doe 6. Plaintiff has attempted to serve Defendant Chanbonpin but has not been able to do so. (2/26/21 Affidavit of Reasonable Diligence.)

As the court cannot issue a ruling until all defendants have been served with the Summons and Complaint and with the instant Motion, the hearing is CONTINUED to allow Plaintiff time to effectuate service on Defendant Chanbonpin.

  1. Conclusion & Order

For the foregoing reasons, Plaintiff Western Surety Company’s Motion is CONTINUED TO MAY 18, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. in Department 25 at the SPRING STREET COURTHOUSE. At least five (5) days before the next scheduled hearing, Plaintiff must file a proof of service demonstrating Defendant Chanbonpin was properly served with the Summons and Complaint and with this Motion. Failure to do so may result in the Motion being placed off calendar or denied.

Moving party is ordered to give notice.
