PageID 53 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA TAMPA DIVISION UNITED STATES, Plaintiff, v. CASE NO. 8:16-cv-1557-T-23MAP SCHUYLER W. LANGDON, Defendant. ____________________________________/ ORDER The United States sues (Doc. 1) Schuyler Langdon to collect approximately $30,000 in student-loan debt guaranteed by the Department of Education and moves (Doc. 14) for summary judgment. Langdon fails to respond to the motion. A February 8, 2017 certificate of indebtedness (Doc. 14-2) from the Department of Education shows that Langdon owes the United States $30,034.88. Between the filing of the certificate and the entry of this order, an additional $180.50 in interest accrued. Also, the United States requests an attorney's fee of $1,040, which appears reasonable. Because no factual dispute appears and because the United States is entitled to judgment as a matter of law, the motion (Doc. 14) for summary judgment is GRANTED. The clerk is directed to enter judgment in the PageID 54 amount of $31,255.38 for the United States of America and against Schuyler W. Langdon and to close the case. ORDERED in Tampa, Florida, on March 31, 2017. -2-
