Jefferson County Case No: 19CV55620
Ranch Matters last reported on the status of the above captioned case on March 9th, 2020. We reported Water Company General Manager, Frank Day, confirmed he’s looking into insurance carrier issues regarding policy limits related to the lawsuit they are tasked defending against from the Ranch Association. Mr. Day added, the Water Company planned on filing their required Answer/Response by March 13, 2020.
There was an Answer filed, however it was an unauthorized Answer.
According to court documents obtained by Ranch Matters, Frank Day, General Manager for Defendant Crooked River Ranch Water Company, filed a Declaration “IN SUPPORT OF DEFENDANT’S MOTION TO STRIKE ANSWER AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSES.”
Mr. Day’s Declaration discusses the lack of communication between him and the former law firm representing the Water Company. Day stated in part, “The Answer was not authorized and does not represent the defendant’s position.”
