Defendants in a lawsuit between a media production company and a sports fitness business have yet to answer service or pay a nearly $90,000 default judgment rendered in June 2010.

Adrenaline Broadcasting sued Icon Sports LLC after the defendant allegedly failed to pay nearly $45,000 worth of television show and Web site work. After Icon repeatedly failed to respond to service, Adrenaline moved for and was granted default judgment.

The lawsuit names Daren Onamsky as the agent of record for Icon. The plaintiffs claim they produced a series of high school football shows and a recruiting DVD for Icon, and that the two had entered into an "oral contract for Plaintiff to provide several media-related services in consideration for payment from the Defendants."

The suit also states, "Plaintiff is entitled to pierce the corporate veil of Icon Sports LLC as Icon and Ponamsky have (1) commingled corporate and shareholder funds; (2) failed to follow statutory formalities for incorporating and transacting corporate affairs; (3) undercapitalized; (4) failed to provide separate bank accounts; and (5) failed to hold regular shareholder and director meetings."

The suit claims damages for open account, breach of contract, non-sufficient funds and unjust enrichment.

Metairie attorneys Stephen Huber and Charles Thomas filed the original petition but were substituted as counsel of record in November 2010 by Metairie attorneys James Williams, Brittany Bonnaffons and Willis Ray.

Bonnaffons filed a motion to examine judgment debtor, which sought all of Icon's tax and business records. Neither party appeared at a hearing schedule for Jan. 21.

Judge Piper Griffin is overseeing this case.
