Unless otherwise defined, all capitalized terms used herein shall have the
same meaning as those in the Complaint.
On November 9, 2015, CDF filed the underlying Complaint, which, among
other things, sought replevin and final possession of CDF’s Collateral, including
Inventory Collateral, as well as a temporary order to preserve property. Damages
related to the CDF indebtedness and CDF Security Documents are not presently sought
through this action as they are subject to arbitration.
On November 12, 2015, the Court entered an Order to Show Cause and
Preserve Property which directed Defendant Duffy’s Outdoor Power Equipment

be awarded immediate possession of the Inventory Collateral.
A copy of the summons, complaint, Order to Show Cause and all other
papers and motions filed by CDF were served on Defendant on November 12, 2015.
On November 19, 2015, Defendant agreed to voluntarily surrender
possession of the Inventory Collateral to CDF.
On November 20, 2015, CDF, through counsel, appeared at the show
cause hearing and explained that Defendant had agreed to surrender possession of the
Inventory Collateral, but requested that the Court grant CDF an Order of Possession to
ensure that Defendant would follow through with surrendering possession of the
Inventory Collateral. CDF provided the Court with a copy of the Voluntary Surrender
agreement signed by Defendant. [See Dkt. #12]. Defendant did not appear.
On November 25, 2015, the Court entered a Prejudgment Order for
Possession after Hearing (the “Possession Order”) in favor of CDF and against Dealer.
On December 7, 2015, CDF, with the aid of the Mesa County Sheriff

possession of the Collateral, including that Inventory Collateral recovered pursuant to
the Possession Order and consents to the Court entering a judgment thereon in favor of
