Before the Court is Defendant Commercial Lumber Sales, Inc.’s renewed motion for

ORDER

partial judgment as a matter of law. (Dkt. No. 204.) Defendant argues that it is entitled to

judgment as a matter of law that Defendants Commercial Transportation, Inc. and Commercial

Lumber Sales, Inc. were not engaged in a joint enterprise and were not the alter ego of each other

at the time of the accident in question. Plaintiffs are not opposed to Defendant’s motion and did

not include provisions relying on the jury’s finding of joint enterprise and alter ego in the

proposed judgment in this case. (See Dkt. No. 213.) Thus, the Court hereby GRANTS

Defendant’s motion and finds that, as a matter of law, Defendants Commercial Transportation,

Inc. and Commercial Lumber Sales, Inc. were not engaged in a joint enterprise and were not the

alter ego of each other at the time of the accident in question.



IT IS SO ORDERED.
