In re: In the Matter of Cashman Equipment Corporation Doc. 34 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF LOUISIANA IN THE MATTER OF THE COMPLAINT OF CASHMAN EQUIPMENT CORPORATION, AS OWNER OF THE DRAGLINE/SPUD BARGE JMC 5, IN A CAUSE FOR LIMITATION OF OR EXONERATION FROM LIMITATION CIVIL ACTION NO. 13-6606 SECTION "N" (1) ORDER AND REASONS Presently before the Court is the motion to lift stay (Rec. Doc. 19) filed by Rod Cheramie and Kerry Cheramie. Having carefully reviewed the parties' submissions, IT IS ORDERED that the motion is DENIED for essentially the reasons stated in Petitioner Cashman Equipment Corporation's opposition memorandum (Rec. Doc. 22). Given the indemnity claim filed by LeBro Construction, Inc., the Cheramies are not the only claimants to this matter. Accordingly, their stipulations alone are not sufficient to warrant lifting the stay of the related state court proceeding. New Orleans, Louisiana, this 12th day of December 2014. ____________________________________ KURT D. ENGELHARDT UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
