CITIMORTGAGE, INC., PLAINTIFF
GLORIA J. O'NEAL, DEFENDANT
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge Conner
ORDER AND AMENDED JUDGMENT
AND NOW, this 11th day of April, 2011, upon consideration of the motion for reassessment of damages (Doc. 27), asking this court to modify the order and judgment entered in favor of plaintiff on May 30, 2006 (Doc. 11), to add interest and additional fees accrued through the date of the Marshal's Sale, and it appearing that the court's order required the Marshal's Sale to occur within 180 days of the date of judgment, and it further appearing that the Marshal's Sale has been scheduled for April 21, 2011 (see Doc. 27 ¶ 6), and that it was not scheduled within the 180-day period because of a backlog of sales at the U.S. Marshall's Office, plaintiff's attempt to assist defendant with home retention options, and defendant's subsequent Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which stayed sale of the property (see id. ¶¶ 3, 5), and it appearing that defendant's bankruptcy proceedings were dismissed by order of the bankruptcy court (see id. Ex. C) dated November 18, 2010,*fn1 and the court concluding that judgment modification is justified by the delay in the Sale, see FED. R. CIV. P. 60(b) (authorizing the court to amend a final judgment for any "reason justifying relief"), it is hereby ORDERED that:
