RDG Oil & Gas, LLC v. Jayne Morton Living Trust

by
Dan C. Morton successfully bid on several federal oil and gas leases. Morton sought the assistance of RDG Oil and Gas, LLC to develop the leases. In 2005, the parties entered into two separate agreements for the development of the leases. In 2012, Morton’s successor in interest, the Jayne Morton Living Trust, filed a complaint against RDG alleging breach of contract of both agreements. RDG did not respond to the complaint, and the district court entered a default judgment against RDG. RDG later moved to set aside the entry of default and the default judgment. The district court denied RDG’s motions. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court did not abuse its discretion in denying RDG’s motion to set aside the entry of default and the entry of default judgment.
