No. 119,337 (comp. w/ 119,181, 119,190)

Decided: March 07, 2022

ORDER OF SUMMARY DISPOSITION

¶1 Rule 1.201 of the Oklahoma Supreme Court Rules provides that “[i]n any case in which it appears that a prior controlling appellate decision is dispositive of the appeal, the court may summarily affirm or reverse, citing in its order of summary disposition this rule and the controlling decision.” Okla. Sup. Ct. Rule 1.201.

¶2 After reviewing the record in this case, THE COURT FINDS that our decision in McBee v. Shanahan Home Design, et al., 2021 OK 60, 499 P.3d 1, involves the same primary legal questions as those in the above-styled appeal; and therefore, our holding in Shanahan disposes of the issues herein.1

¶3 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the trial court's order sustaining defendant Rhino Roofing, L.L.C.'s motion to dismiss for untimely service of process is reversed and the cause is remanded for further proceedings.

DONE BY ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT IN CONFERENCE THIS 7th day of March, 2022.
