News: Dave Richards and Tanner Strickland Lenart Obtain Summary Judgment on Opposition's "Unreasonable Use" Claim
// Jun 30, 2016
C&J water law attorneys David C. Richards and Tanner Strickland Lenart recently prevailed on summary judgment in a case involving a dispute over the alleged flooding of a property bought and developed by the plaintiff. The plaintiff had alleged an “unreasonable use” claim against C&J’s client, an irrigation company. However, Dave and Tanner successfully argued that the plaintiff presented no evidence that their client irrigation company was responsible to monitor the diversion and use of water from a private lateral by one of the other defendants, and that the plaintiff was not a third-part beneficiary to the contract between C&J’s client and the defendant city. Congratulations to Dave and Tanner on obtaining summary judgment for their client. Read C&J’s Motion for Summary Judgment memo here, and its Reply memo here.
