Defendant filed an answer to the complaint and a counterclaim. The amended counterclaim, which does not bring up a new dispute but is merely an answer to plaintiff's Count I, alleges that plaintiff repudiated the 1982 contract and requests the court to order plaintiff to return the $86,368 deposit that defendant gave plaintiff for the production of the molds.
Defendant has moved for summary judgment on the issue of liability. Plaintiff has filed a cross motion seeking summary judgment on plaintiff's Counts I and III and on defendant's counterclaim. I will deny both motions.
The script in this case is complex and the players numerous. Thus, before setting forth the facts, I have composed a chart of the actors appearing most frequently:
Plaintiff-Reaction Molding Defendant-General Electric
Wilton R. Danien, President Jim Curtis, Waltz' boss
David E. Michaelis, Vice-President Frank Waltz, GE Manager
and boss to Repinski
Jeffrey W. Hill, plaintiff's
representative in Chicago Gregory A. Repinski,
Project Manager CT9800
Joseph E. Pompe, Tooling
Supervisor Lee Rundbaken, Roshak's boss
Dick Brandt, GE Engineer
Cletus R. Roshak, buyer for
James Howard, buyer for GE
