THOMAS B. RUSSELL, Senior District Judge.
Plaintiffs filed this action against Defendants on April 7, 2017. [R. 1 (Complaint).] Since the commencement of this action, Defendants have neither appeared, nor filed an answer or any other pleadings. Upon proper motion, the Court entered default against them on June 1, 2017. [R. 9 (Entry of Default).] Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 55(b)(2), Plaintiffs now move for the entry of a default judgment against Defendants. [R. 11 (Motion for Entry of Default Judgment).]
A brief description of the claims pleaded in the complaint is necessary. In Count I, the Trust Fund Plaintiffs, as defined in the margin,
Upon default, the Court takes as true all factual allegations in the complaint except those relating to the amount of damages. Fed. R. Civ. P. 8(b)(6); see also Thomas v. Miller, 489 F.3d 293, 299 (6th Cir. 2007); Antoine v. Atlas Turner, Inc., 66 F.3d 105, 110 (6th Cir. 1995). Even after the entry of default, however, the decision "to grant a default judgment is within the Court's discretion." AF Holdings LLC v. Bossard, 976 F.Supp.2d 927, 929 (W.D. Mich. 2013) (citing Flaks v. Koegel, 504 F.2d 702, 707 (2d Cir. 1974)). In determining whether to enter a default judgment, courts in this Circuit typically consider factors such as:
10A Charles A. Wright et al., Federal Practice and Procedure § 2685 (4th ed.), Westlaw (database updated Apr. 2017) (footnotes omitted).
Here, taking all allegations of the complaint as true, Defendants violated the parties' collective bargaining agreement by failing to make required contributions and payroll deductions. The Plaintiffs are entitled to recover the unpaid contributions and payroll deductions, see 29 U.S.C. §§ 1132(g)(2), which total $53,963.43, [R. 11-1 at 1, ¶
5 (Hanley's Affidavit)]. In addition, the Plaintiffs are entitled to recover reasonable attorney's fees and costs, see 29 U.S.C. § 1132(g)(2)(D), which total $2,475.50, [R. 11-2 at 1, ¶ 3 (Berkowitz's Affidavit)]. The amount is a reasonable sum. [See id. at 2 (Billing Records).] Accordingly, the Court will enter a default judgment against Defendants in the amount of $56,438.93.
