August 12, 2013 178 Featured Case MEMORANDUM AND ORDER - This matter is before the Court on a Plaintiffs' "Supplemental Memorandum" (Doc. No. 177) filed in response to the Court's Memorandum and Order dated July 16, 2013. The Court construes the Supplemental Me morandum as a motion for reconsideration or clarification of the Court's conclusion in the Memorandum and Order that if Defendants prevail on their claim that termination of the Florissant franchise agreement was wrongful, Defendants could poten tially be entitled to recoup their investment in the Florissant store, less the current value of the store and profits they realized. Although the Court did not rule on any issues related to the Store Development Agreement ("SDA"), the Co urt did mention that agreement, and will grant Plaintiffs' motion to the extent of clarifying that indeed the Court had previously granted Plaintiffs summary judgment on Count II of the Third Amended Counterclaim in which Defendants claimed breach of the SDA.
