On January 28, 2015, the court conducted a status conference. At the conference, the court expressed a willingness to allow Defendant RCO Engineering, Inc.

De Leau, 565 N.W.2d 639 (Mich. 1997) to the instant case. The parties should also discuss whether Plaintiffs' claims must be adjudicated in a Rule 60 motion in the original action, if the court agrees that the Rule 60 standards apply. Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that Defendant RCO is directed to file a brief of no longer than 10 pages by Friday, February 20, 2015.
