On February 13, 1997, Ashby Enterprises, Ltd., Luskins Appliances, Inc., Luskins, Inc., We-Are-Electronics, Inc., and Sound and Sight, Inc., (the "plaintiffs," or collectively "Luskins") filed voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy petitions in this Court. On July 10, 1997, the plaintiffs filed the instant amended complaint for breach of contract and damages against the defendant, Petters Company, Inc. At trial on January 21, 1999, this Court found the defendant liable to the plaintiffs for breach of a contract dated December 21, 1996 ("Collateral Disposition Agreement" or "Agreement") by which Petters obligated itself to purchase "factory-fresh" inventory from Luskins located at a warehouse in Columbia, Maryland, and retail outlets located in Towson and Woodlawn, Maryland. Determination of the amount of damages was reserved, and the parties submitted post-trial briefs on that issue. Based upon the submissions and the evidence presented at trial, the Court has determined damages to have been sustained by the plaintiffs in the amount of $94,594.07, and will enter judgment in that amount in favor of Luskins, Inc., against Petters, Inc.
