MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER

Property & Casualty Insurance Company, Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, and
Nationwide Mutual Fire Insurance Company (together, "Nationwide")'s Motion for Summary
Judgment (Dkt. 38). This case involves a breach of contract action concerning the scope of

for the Construction Management Fee because the Association never assigned the right to this
