ORDER - This case arises out of an accident suffered by Plaintiff Carolyn Lamar. She alleges that she slipped and fell on a puddle of wet floor wax in the medical clinic in which she worked. Ms. Lamar has sued Johnson Controls, Inc. ("JCI" ;), the contractor responsible for the clinic's facilities maintenance, and Crown Building Maintenance Company, d/b/a Able Building Maintenance ("Crown"), the company subcontracted by JCI to provide the facility's janitorial se rvices. JCI has moved for summary judgment, arguing that it cannot be held liable for the actions committed by its subcontractor, Crown. For the reasons that follow, the Court grants JCI's Motion for Summary Judgment, [Filing No. 88 ]. Remai ning for trial are Ms. Lamar's claim against Crown, [Filing No. 1 ]; Zurich's counter-claim against JCI, [Filing No. 50 ]; JCI's cross-claim against Crown, [Filing No. 42 ]; and JCI's third-party complaint against Zurich, [Filing No. 42 ]. The Court requests that the Magistrate Judge confer with the parties regarding the status of those remaining claims in light of this ruling, and possible resolution of claims unaffected by this ruling. No partial final judgment shall issue at this time. (See Order.) Copies distributed pursuant to distribution list. Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 10/20/2017. (RSF)
