Plaintiff demonstrates it is entitled to the requested default judgment. Plaintiff presents the declaration of Jonathan Manhan, president and CEO of Plaintiff, doing business as Buyers Consultation Services. Mr. Manhan states that Plaintiff delivered the goods ordered by Defendant, that Defendant received the goods, and that Plaintiff sent invoices as well as a final statement to Defendant. The invoices and final statement are attached as Exhibit A to the declaration, and show that Defendant owes $45,000 for the goods delivered. Mr. Manhan also states that Defendant has not yet paid for the goods pursuant to the invoices, and has not returned the goods. Plaintiff also presents a cost memorandum and a calculation of interest owed through August 8, 2016. Plaintiff is entitled to additional interest in the amount of $813.78 (based on the 66 days between August 8, 2016 and October 13, 2016, at the daily rate of $12.33). Accordingly, because Plaintiff has established a prima facie case of damages, the request for default judgment is granted in the amount of $54,586.58.
