SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A case between University of Iowa and UI Pharmaceuticals, the plaintiffs, and Callisto Pharmaceuticals and Synergy Pharmaceuticals, the defendants, will remain unresolved.

The UI plaintiffs requested the court enter a default judgment in its favor after defendants failed to file a motion to answer to the petition within 20 days, a requirement set forth in the Iowa Rules of Civil Procedure 1.303, according to court documents.

The 6th District Court denied the motion for default judgment. According to court documents, for a default to be entered, "the court would at minimum need supporting affidavits regarding the amount of any judgment to be entered … [and] plaintiffs must follow the procedures set forth in the Iowa Rule of Civil Procedure 1.972."

The motion was denied without prejudice, meaning UI plaintiffs can file for similar relief in the future upon compliance with the Iowa Rules of Civil Procedure.
