Cross-Claimants S & S Fuel, Inc. ("S&S") and Sukhdev Singh ("Singh") brought Cross Claims in this action against Cross-Defendant Poppy Bank in Docket #17 alleging intentional misrepresentation, equitable indemnity and declaratory relief causes of action.
On September 25, 2019 the Court entered an Order Compelling Arbitration and Dismissing Cross-Claim Without Prejudice (Docket #36).

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that Final Judgment shall be entered in favor of Poppy Bank and against S & S and Singh pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 58(a) on the grounds set forth in the Final Award.
IT IS FURTHER HEREBY ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED that S & S and Singh are, jointly and severally liable to Poppy Bank for (1) attorney fees in the amount of ONE HUNDRED EIGHT THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED THREE DOLLARS AND FORTY-EIGHT CENTS ($108,203.48), (2) costs in the amount of TWO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS ($2,500) and (3) JAMS fees in the amount of EIGHT THOUSAND SIX HUNDRED FORTY-TWO DOLLARS AND SEVENTY-SIX CENTS ($8,642.76).
