3.      SCV-257247 Armitage v. Valva:

            The Motion for Leave to File a Cross-Complaint is Granted.

            Permitting the filing of the cross-complaint will not complicate plaintiff’s lawsuit; in fact, plaintiff filed a statement of non-opposition to this motion on May 26, 2016.  The City of Cloverdale has been a party since the complaint was filed and the cross-complaint for indemnity, contribution and apportionment is necessary to avoid forfeiture of these causes of action.

            Defense counsel shall prepare an order consisting with this ruling within five (5) days.


4.      SCV-258303 Solheim v. Badboy:

            The Motion to Stay was withdrawn by the moving party.
