Shannon Lewis v. Charles Richards and City of Loveland
Case No. 2015CV30864
On January 15, 2015, Plaintiff filed a Notice of Claim alleging that a City snowplow made an illegal right turn and struck her vehicle. Plaintiff alleges personal injuries and property damage as a result of the collision. A lawsuit was filed in Larimer County Court on October 7, 2015. An answer was filed on behalf of the City of Loveland and Charles Richards on December 11, 2015 disputing the Plaintiff's allegations and claims. The City filed a Motion for Summary Judgment arguing the case should be dismissed since there had previously been a lawsuit filed by State Farm regarding the same incident, which precluded Plaintiff from pursuing this action. On June 20, 2016, the District Court entered an Order granting the City’s Motion for Summary Judgment and dismissing the claims as to both the City employee snowplow driver and the City. Plaintiff timely filed a Notice of Appeal on July 25, 2016. The record on appeal was filed on October 24, 2016. The parties submitted briefs and on June 22, 2017, the Colorado Court of Appeals issued an order reversing the district court and remanding the case for further proceedings.
