ANEXIO Data Centers had been sued by GoDaddy for breach of contract. In their lawsuit, GoDaddy claimed that it pre-paid for facilities at ANEXIO’s colocation data center in Los Angeles. ANEXIO Data Centers failed to return credit to GoDaddy after it stopped rendering services in violation of the parties’ contract.
The lawsuit dates back to October 2020 when GoDaddy filed the action for breach of contract.
ANEXIO and GoDaddy had signed a master services agreement (MSA) in 2016, under which ANEXIO had offered GoDaddy a 10 percent discount for paying data center services upfront.
Due to GoDaddy’s pre-payment, ANEXIO Data Centers owed GoDaddy a credit of approximately $1.14 million when it was evicted from the El Segundo data center in Los Angeles in June 2019.
The Federal Rules of Civil Procedure required ANEXIO to file a responsive pleading or motion, which it did not do. The court has now determined that the requested amount reflects the damages GoDaddy has sustained as a result of ANEXIO’s failure to perform.
