8th Circuit Affirms Substantial Default Judgment, Strikes Arguments Made for the First Time in Reply Brief

Congratulations to Matt Lindsay for prevailing in this appeal.   The short per curiam decision has limited precedential value, but it is interesting that the panel granted our motion to strike parts of the appellant’s reply brief where they raised arguments that were not developed in their opening brief.   The case is Piaquadio v. American Legal Funding (8th Cir. 12-1952).
