Former RazorSharks coach seeks default judgment in back pay case.

Byline: Kevin Oklobzija

The attorney for former Rochester RazorSharks coach Chris Iversen has filed court papers seeking a default judgment in a lawsuit over unpaid back wages.

Iversen sued the RazorSharks on Aug. 7, claiming he was not paid for the final nine months of his employment as coach of the minor league basketball team.

His attorney,Peter Weishaar of the law firm McConville, Considine, Cooman & Moran, on Tuesday filed papers in state Supreme Court in Monroe County asking that a default judgment be issued and that his client be awarded $76,806.

The court documents say Iversen is due his back wages of $32,475, plus the same amount in statutory liquidated damages, plus interest at $8 per day, plus attorneys fees of $4,327, plus the $5,000 in statutory damages, plus court processing fees of $625.

The request for judicial intervention is being sought because the defendant didn't file an answer in response to the suit within the required time frame which ended on Sept. 13.

Weishaar and Razorsharks attorney Joseph Shur of Relin, Goldstein & Crane, both said last week that the parties had been discussing a possible settlement. When no deal was reached by the end of the week, Weishaar followed through with a promise to seek a default judgment.
