Butler County Judge Noah Powers designated this week the lawsuit against Spooky Nook Sports Champion Mill and its owner, a subcontractor, and multiple insurance companies as ‘complex litigation.’LitigationExcess & Surplus Lines
On Feb. 10, PCS &Build LLC filed an 11-count lawsuit against Champion Mill Land, LLC (the business name operating Spooky Nook Sports Champion Mill), Spooky Nook owner Sam Beiler, Sofco Erectors, Inc., and the insurance companies of Atlantic Specialty Insurance (also known as Intact) and Old Republic.
The filing from the judge came after a number of requests for extensions of time for the multiple defendants to respond to the plaintiff.
A ‘complex litigation’ is defined as a case that presents unique challenges, such as the complexity of the case, the quantity or nature of documents at issue or the number of parties involved.
Powers said in addition to seven parties involved, the number of parties requesting additional time to respond and the number of pages in just the initial complaint (300-plus), qualifies as ‘complex litigation.’
