Delaware River and Bay Authority and Donald M. Ransom, Esquire, Casarino, Christman & Shalk, P.A., 800 N. King Street, Suite 200, P.O. Box 1276, Wilmington, DE 19899 (302) 5944500, having appeared for defendant Craig Swett, the following actions were taken: (1) This is a consolidated action for damages for personal injuries and maintenance and cure, and the jurisdiction of the court is involved under the Jones Act 46 U.S.C. §688 and the maritime jurisdiction, 33 U.S.C. §1333. As against defendant Delaware River and Bay Authority, plaintiff claims maintenance and cure and compensatory and punitive damages, including attorney's fees, for the wrongful failure to pay maintenance and cure concurrently with the need under the general maritime law and compensatory damages for personal injuries pursuant to the Jones Act, 46 U.S.C. §688, and the unseaworthiness of the MV DELAWARE. As against defendant Craig Swett, plaintiff claims compensatory damage for Swett's negligence in backing up his vehicle and striking plaintiff after plaintiff had directed him to a parking place aboard the MV DELAWARE on August 9, 2002. The MV DELAWARE was then in the navigable waters of the United States, so the maritime law governs this claim. (a) Stipulations DRBA admits that it owned and operated the ferry vessel MV DELAWARE, which operated between Cape May, New Jersey and Lewes, Delaware and that plaintiff, Jan Kopacz, was a seaman in its employ on the MV DELAWARE on August 9, 2002 and that at the time of plaintiff's claimed accident the MV DELAWARE was at dock at the ferry terminal in Lewes, Delaware.

DRBA offers the following Stipulations but plaintiff does not agree: (a) Kopacz was paid his full wages from August 9, 2002 through October 3, 2002, using his annual and sick leave. He was released by his physician to return to work on November 25, 2002, and actually returned to work on December 1, 2002. (b) At the time of the alleged incident, Kopacz was insured through the DRBA with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Delaware. The DRBA paid the majority of the premium, although Kopacz contributed approximately $100 per month through payroll deductions. (c) DRBA stipulates to Kopacz' contested facts 1 through 6. Swett offers the following Stipulations but plaintiff does not agree: (a) It is admitted that on August 9, 2002, Craig Swett, along with his wife, two

daughters, and niece, were traveling in a Ford vehicle on the Cape May Lewes Ferry. While the ferry was docked at Cape May terminal in Lewes, Delaware, Mr. Kopacz directed Mr. Swett to park his vehicle aboard the MV DELAWARE and Mr. Swett complied with Mr. Kopacz's directions. It is also admitted that at the time of the alleged incident, Mr. Kopacz had available to him a policy of Personal Injury Protection ("PIP") insurance issued pursuant to 21 Del. C. § 2118, which among other things, provided coverage for medical expenses and lost wages and provided policy limits of $15,000 per person/ $30,000 per accident. Pursuant to 21 Del. C. § 2118(h), Mr. Kopacz is precluded from pleading or introducing into evidence against Mr. Swett any PIP eligible lost wages or medical expenses whether such benefits were or are actually recoverable. It is admitted that Mr. Kopacz is withdrawing his claim for dental injury per a letter from 3

plaintiff's counsel to both defense counsel dated June 24, 2005. Defendants contend that the fact that Mr. Kopacz brought the dental claims in the first instance is relevant to the defense of fraud. (b) Contested Facts Liability Plaintiff (hereinafter "Kopacz") will prove the following contested facts at trial: 1. On the afternoon of August 9, 2002 Kopacz was working as an A.B. aboard DRBA's ferry vessel MV DELAWARE. 2. Kopacz' job was to direct cars to their parking places on the car deck. 3. Kopacz was in the center right lane approximately midships while doing this work. 4. Kopacz directed a vehicle driven by Dr. Marc Greenstein to its parking place, and the vehicle stopped. 5. Kopacz then directed the next vehicle in line, driven by Craig Swett, to a place immediately behind Dr. Greenstein's vehicle. 6. The Swett vehicle came to a stop as directed. 7. Kopacz was standing next to the Swett vehicle and saw some cars coming down the center left lane pretty fast to be parked. 8. Kopacz stepped behind the Swett vehicle to let the cars drive by him. 9. While Kopacz was standing behind the Swett vehicle, the vehicle backed up without warning and the bumper hit the backs of Kopacz' calves. 10. The impact caused Kopacz' knees to buckle, and he fell backwards against the Swett vehicle, with his right elbow and left hand striking the vehicle. 11. Kopacz remonstrated with Swett, and Swett apologized for having hit him. 4

12. Swett and Kopacz exchanged angry words, and Kopacz reported the incident to his supervisor, Pilot David Oat. 13. Kopacz left the ferry and was taken by ambulance to Beebe Memorial Hospital. 14. Kopacz was treated at the Emergency Room of Beebe Memorial Hospital until he was discharged at about 1:30 a.m. on August 10, 2002. 15. When discharged Kopacz was told not to work for 3 days and he was given a neck brace which he was told to wear for 2 weeks, and he was also told to see his family doctor. 16. On August 12, 2002 Kopacz went to his family doctor, Dr. Elisa Montross-Lopez, but she was not available so he was treated by another doctor in the office, Dr. J.K. Beebe. 17. Dr. Beebe certified Kopacz as being disabled due to injuries suffered in the automobile accident, and this was for the period 8/12/02 to 8/20/02. 18. Kopacz returned on August 19, 2002 and was then treated by Dr. Elisa MontrossLopez, who certified him as disabled from work from 8/9/02 to "indefinitely." 19. Dr. Montross-Lopez referred Kopacz to Dr. Ronald Sabbagh of Orthopedic Associates of Southern Delaware, and thereafter Dr. Sabbagh and Dr. Mehdi treated Kopacz until he was certified to return to work on November 25, 2002. 20. On November 4, 2002 Dr. Sabbagh certified Kopacz as being capable of returning to work on November 25, 2002. 21. Thereafter Kopacz continued to suffer loss of time from work on an occasional basis.

By Defendant DRBA 1. During the summer of 2002, Kopacz had been reprimanded on several occasions for rude and verbally abusive behavior towards passengers on the ferry. 2. In fact, he was reprimanded on the morning of August 9, 2002 by Pilot Oat for such behavior. 3. Swett admits that he backed his car a few inches, at which point Kopacz slapped the side of his vehicle with his palm, then walked up to the driver's side window of the Swett vehicle and began to verbally berate Swett for backing up, in loud and abusive terms. 4. During this initial communication after the incident, Kopacz never stated that he had been hurt. 5. After berating Swett, Kopacz returned to parking cars. Kopacz did not report the incident or claim to be injured until after Swett later asked for his name and advised of his intention to report Kopacz' rude behavior. 6. The DRBA denies that Kopacz was injured by any contact with the Swett vehicle, and maintains that Kopacz manufactured the accident and injury to avoid disciplinary action. 7. Kopacz went to his doctor, who gave him a note stating that he could remain out of work for some period of time. This certificate was based on Kopacz' description of the accident and subjective complaints of pain. 8. Prior to the incident, Kopacz had a number of pre-existing conditions, including chronic low back, neck and shoulder pain. 9. Any objective conditions exhibited by Kopacz during the months following the incident were the result of degenerative or pre-existing conditions. 6

10. Kopacz made no claim against the DRBA for maintenance, cure or any injuries as a result of the incident until June, 2003, almost one year later. 11. Up until that time, Kopacz made it clear that he was not pursuing any claim against the DRBA, but rather was proceeding solely against Swett. 12. Any and all of Kopacz' medical bills were eligible for coverage by medical insurance provided by the DRBA to Kopacz through Blue Cross Blue Shield. By Defendant Swett 1. Mr. Kopacz directed Mr. Swett to park his vehicle very close to a vehicle already aboard and parked directly in front of Mr. Swett's vehicle. 2. Dr. Marc Greenstein, the operator of the vehicle in front of Defendant Swett, requested that Mr. Swett back a few inches to enable him to squeeze between the vehicles to access the rear of his vehicle and retrieve a stroller. 3. Mr. Swett, complying with that request, backed no more than a few inches and stopped at which time Mr. Kopacz struck the rear of the vehicle with an extended left hand. 4. Other than Mr. Kopacz striking Mr. Swett's vehicle with his hand, there was no contact between the Swett vehicle and Kopacz's body. 5. When Mr. Swett backed up his vehicle while aboard the MV DELAWARE, his foot never touched the accelerator, he traveled no more than 4 inches while backing up, and his speed was such that it would not have registered on an odometer. 6. There was no accident nor were there any injuries sustained by Plaintiff Kopacz after the incident alleged. 7

7. Mr. Kopacz, after berating Mr. Swett for backing without his permission, then continued parking other vehicles. 8. In response to Mr. Kopacz's interaction with Mr Swett, a DRBA police officer on the front of the ferry summoned Officer Denise Wise to the scene. 9. During this time, Mr. Swett approached Mr. Kopacz and asked for his name in order to report Mr. Kopacz's rude behavior. 10. After Mr. Swett's inquiry, Mr. Kopacz informed Pilot Oat that he had been hit. 11. Only after Mr. Swett requested Mr. Kopacz's name and Officer Wise came to the scene did Mr. Kopacz complain of injury and request medical assistance. Injuries and Damages By Plaintiff 22. Kopacz suffered a contusion to his right shoulder, which resolved in a matter of weeks without residual disability. 23. Kopacz suffered a cervical strain or sprain, which manifested itself with pain and muscle spasm demonstrated at Beebe Memorial Hospital when Kopacz was taken there on August 9, 2002. 24. Upon discharge from Beebe Kopacz was diagnosed with a cervical strain or sprain and given a cervical collar to wear for two weeks. 25. The cervical strain or sprain resolved without significant residual disability after several weeks but continued to be painful periodically thereafter. 26. Kopacz suffered a low back strain/sprain and an aggravation of dormant underlying 8

stenosis. 26a. In January 2003 an MRI demonstrated a herniated disc at L4-5, but this was not disabling although it may have caused pain periodically. 27. Kopacz' lower back condition continued to cause intermittent pain and disability even after he was able to return to work on November 25, 2002. 28. Kopacz was totally disabled from August 9, 2002 until November 25, 2002. 29. Kopacz' wage loss during this period was approximately $13,000. 30. Kopacz' medical bills are listed in section 8. By Defendant DRBA 6. The DRBA denies that Kopacz was injured by any contact with the Swett vehicle, and maintains that Kopacz manufactured the accident and injury to avoid disciplinary action. 7. Kopacz went to his doctor, who gave him a note stating that he could remain out of work for some period of time. This certificate was based on Kopacz' description of the accident and subjective complaints of pain. 8. Prior to the incident, Kopacz had a number of pre-existing conditions, including chronic low back, neck and shoulder pain. 9. Any objective conditions exhibited by Kopacz during the months following the incident were the result of degenerative or pre-existing conditions. By Defendant Swett 12. Prior to this alleged incident on August 9, 2002, Mr. Kopacz had treated for numerous injuries and complaints to the same regions he claims were injured as a result of the alleged incident on August 9, 2002. 9

13. Mr. Kopacz did not sustain the injuries he claims in his complaint as a result of the alleged contact between Mr. Kopacz and Mr. Swett's vehicle, such as injuries to the cervical spine, low back, right elbow, teeth, and alleged herniated disc at L5-S1 and was not injured as a result of the events on August 9, 2002. Maintenance and Cure By Plaintiff 31. The accident came to DRBA's attention immediately, and it was investigated shortly after it occurred. 32. Kopacz was taken by ambulance, which had been called by a DRBA employee, to Beebe Memorial Hospital. 33. At the Beebe Emergency Room Kopacz had a CT scan done of his right elbow and cervical spine; muscle spasm was demonstrated in the cervical spine; and there was decreased range of motion of the right elbow. 34. Upon discharge at approximately 1:00 a.m. on August 10, 2002 Kopacz was given a soft cervical collar and told to wear it for 2 weeks. 35. The Discharge Instructions read in relevant part: Neck injury (cervical strain): You have a neck strain... Cervical collar: You have to wear a neck brace... Release from work: You are not to return to work... 10

36. Kopacz' wife called DRBA from Beebe Medical Center Emergency Room at about 9:00 p.m. and informed them that Kopacz would not be at work the following day due to the injuries he had received earlier that day in the automobile accident. 37. Kopacz' wife called in again on August 11, 2002 and reported that he would not be at work the following day due to his injuries. 38. No one at DRBA informed Kopacz of what he was legally entitled to following the August 9, 2002 incident. 39. Kopacz informed DRBA shortly after August 9, 2002 that he was only pursuing the driver of the car because he didn't think that DRBA had done anything wrong. 40. Kopacz timely supplied DRBA with duty status slips which medically supported his disability from August 9, 2002 until November 25, 2002. 41. No maintenance and cure were paid, and the claim remained dormant until Kopacz spoke to Bonnie Miller of DRBA on May 8 and June 25, 2003. 42. During one of those telephone discussions Ms. Miller said that Kopacz need only submit medical records and he would be entitled to full pay for 90 days and thereafter 60 percent of his base pay, which would be paid by DRBA's long-term disability carrier and that DRBA would pay his medical bills. 43. DRBA has never paid maintenance and cure, and Kopacz' board and lodging totalled $55.20 per day. 44. DRBA's policy was to pay maintenance at the rate of full wages for 90 days and 60 percent of base wages thereafter. 45. DRBA has never disputed that Kopacz first became disabled on August 9, 2002. 11

46. DRBA has no evidence that Kopacz' injuries were caused by wilful misconduct. 47. DRBA's failure to pay maintenance and cure caused Kopacz to suffer great mental stress due to an inability to pay the medical bills, and this manifested itself when he had a dispute with the Office Manager at his doctor's office, and this caused a discontinuation of his medical treatment by that doctor. 48. Kopacz' credit rating was severely damaged by DRBA's failure to pay his medical bills. 49. Kopacz was denied coverage by his PIP carrier because of the statements obtained by DRBA from its employees. 50. Blue Cross did not pay his medical bills since it was a work-related injury. 51. Swett's employer caused a fraud investigation to be undertaken by the Delaware Department of Insurance, based on DRBA's investigation, and this required Kopacz to incur legal bills. 52. DRBA paid Kopacz, at his request, his accrued sick leave and annual leave, until those benefits were exhausted, and thereafter Kopacz had no income. 53. Counsel wrote to Bonnie Miller and was referred to Lamorte Burns & Co. 54. The correspondence exchanged with Lamorte Burns & Co. is an exhibit. (DRBA's contested facts # 10, 11, 12) By Defendant, DRBA 10. Kopacz made no claim against the DRBA for maintenance, cure or any injuries as a result of the incident until June, 2003, almost one year later. 11. Up until that time, Kopacz made it clear that he was not pursuing any claim against 12

the DRBA, but rather was proceeding solely against Swett. 12. Any and all of Kopacz' medical bills were eligible for coverage by medical insurance provided by the DRBA to Kopacz through Blue Cross Blue Shield. Plaintiff's Statements of the Law See Trial Memorandum. By Defendant Swett - Contested Issues of Law 14. The allegations contained in the pleadings regarding Kopacz's alleged injuries are binding on Kopacz and admissible in Court as admissions. Giannone v. U.S. Steel Corp., 288 F.2d 544, 547 (3d Cir.1956) (holding that an admission in a pleading is a judicial admission binding on a litigant and that "pleadings which do not amount to judicial admissions may be used as evidence of factual allegations" even if withdrawn); Krauss v. State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company, 2004 WL 2830889, at *4-5 (Del. Super.) (finding that "pleadings are not mere ordinary admissions but are considered `judicial admissions'"); Staats v.

Plaintiff is claiming compensatory damages, including wage loss, medical expenses and pain and suffering from DRBA on the Jones Act/unseaworthiness claim. Plaintiff is claiming maintenance and cure plus compensatory and punitive damages, and counsel fees (to be determined by the Court if awarded) and pre-judgment interest for the failure to pay maintenance and cure concurrently with the need. Maintenance is at full wages for 90 days and 60 percent of base wages thereafter. Kopacz is also claiming the value of the sick and annual leave benefits he had to use. Cure is set forth above. The punitive damages claim has been dismissed by this Court, and the Court should set the amount of counsel fees if they are awarded. Pain and suffering damages are set by the jury. Plaintiff is claiming compensatory damages, including wage loss, medical expenses and pain and suffering, from Swett under the general maritime law. Objection by Defendant Swett Defendant Swett objects to the admissibility of these damages on the grounds that they are inadmissible per 21 Del. C. §2118(h). (h) Waivers of claims or defenses - none by plaintiff Waivers of any claims or defenses that have been abandoned by any party Defendant Swett's Position Mr. Kopacz's claim for dental injury is withdrawn per a letter from plaintiff's counsel to both defense counsel dated June 24, 2005. Defendants contend that the fact that Mr. Kopacz brought the dental claims in the first instance is relevant to the defense of fraud. Also, in view of the Plaintiff counsel's refusal to produce Cathy Kopacz for deposition 26
