FAIRFIELD — A lawsuit by Pepperbelly’s against its insurers in connection with the Jan. 25, 2013, fire is an administrative filing and doesn’t reflect a disagreement between comedy club owner Dave Wayne Mayhew and his insurers, says the attorney for Pepperbelly’s.
Tim Jones on Tuesday said his Jan. 24 filing in Solano County Superior Court reflects the one-year statute of limitations for such civil cases involving real estate and insurance.
Jones said he believes the matter will be dismissed before the May 8 management conference scheduled in Vallejo before Judge Michael Mattice.
“You file a complaint out of an abundance of caution,” Jones said.
The attorney said he understands the cause of the fire to be old electrical wires that shorted out.
