Plaintiffs have now recognized that there are not facts to support that claim, and ask that their
claim for bad faith and punitive damages be dismissed without prejudice. Defendant joins in the
request. The Motion is GRANTED. Plaintiffs’ claim for bad faith and punitive damages is
dismissed without prejudice; Plaintiffs’ claims for breach of contract, 12 % penalty, pre- and
post-judgment interest, and attorney’s fees remain.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 3rd day of August, 2012.
