News: Dave Richards and Tanner Strickland Lenart Obtain Summary Judgment on Opposition's "Unreasonable Use" Claim
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.
