United States District Court, S.D. Georgia, Savannah Division

April 19, 2019

REEVES CONSTRUCTION COMPANY, Plaintiff,
v.
BAKER CONSTRUCTORS, INC.; STOY MARLOW; and BRIAN REGENHARDT, Defendants.

          STIPULATED CONSENT ORDER

          R. STAN BAKER UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE.

         This matter is before the Court on the parties' Joint Motion to Enter Stipulated Consent Order. (Doc. 120.) The Court has considered the parties' Motion and notes that the terms requested therein are agreed to by all parties to the litigation. (Id.) As such, the Court GRANTS the parties' Joint Motion to Enter Stipulated Consent Order. (Id.) The Court's entry of this Stipulated Consent Order is not an adjudication of the merits of any claims or defenses asserted in this action (the “Litigation”). Nor shall any of the terms herein be construed as an admission by any party as to any claims or defenses in the Litigation.

         WHEREAS, Defendant Baker Constructors Inc. (“BCI”) has moved to compel arbitration and contends that all of Plaintiff Reeves Construction Company's (“Reeves”) claims in this Litigation are subject to binding arbitration pursuant to a July 30, 2010 Asset Purchase Agreement (the “APA”). (Doc. 106.)

         WHEREAS, Defendants Stoy Marlow and Brian Regenhardt have joined in Defendant BCI's Motion to Compel Arbitration and also contend that Plaintiff's claims in this Litigation are subject to binding arbitration pursuant to the APA. (Doc. 110.)

         WHEREAS, Plaintiff has opposed Defendant BCI's Motion to Compel Arbitration and contends that none of Plaintiff's claims in this Litigation are subject to arbitration. (Doc. 119.)

         WHEREAS, and notwithstanding the foregoing, the parties have agreed to arbitrate the claims made in this Litigation pursuant to the terms of the APA's arbitration clause, which is set forth at Section 12.8 of the APA and incorporated herein by reference.

         WHEREAS, and notwithstanding the foregoing, Defendants deny any liability to Plaintiff, and Defendant BCI specifically denies that it is liable for any alleged taking, transfer or use of any of the information subject of the current Stipulated Consent Order.

         WHEREAS, in consideration for Plaintiff's agreement to arbitrate the claims it has asserted in this Litigation and to aid the forthcoming arbitration proceeding, Plaintiff and Defendants agree to the following:

         NOW, THEREFORE, the parties agree and the Court ORDERS the following:

1. The Parties shall arbitrate the claims at issue in this Litigation and any other claims relating to the same nucleus of facts pursuant to the terms of the APA's arbitration clause, and the parties agree that the arbitration panel shall arbitrate and have the jurisdiction to arbitrate all claims brought or which could have been brought based on the same nucleus of facts in the Litigation. Delivery of the “Notice of Arbitration” to each of the Defendants, as described in the APA, shall be satisfied by providing such notice via overnight commercial courier (next business day delivery) to the respective counsel of record for Defendants.
2. All statutes of limitations and repose for the claims asserted by Plaintiff in this Litigation are tolled as of the date of the filing of the Complaint in this matter.
3. Defendants warrant and represent that they are not currently knowingly using any property or non-public information of Plaintiff Reeves or its corporate parent, Colas Inc. (“Colas”) that was in the possession of or copied, taken, or transferred by any former Reeves employee subsequently employed by BCI (hereinafter referred to as “Reeves Property”).
4. Defendants warrant and represent that they have taken reasonable efforts to locate and identify any Reeves Property in their possession, and Defendants will take prompt and appropriate steps to cease utilizing any Reeves Property that Defendants or their counsel learn of after the date of this Stipulated Consent Order.
5. Defendants state that they have no intention or desire to use any of the Reeves Property. Defendants further deny that any of Reeves Property has been used in any manner which would form or support the basis of any civil claim against them. Plaintiff understands that certain property delineated by Reeves as Reeves Property is subject to disagreement amongst the parties to this Stipulated Consent ...
