Ranger Insurance Company v. Pierce County, 2007 WL 1470455 (Wash.App. May 22, 2007) is a second appeal in this case. In the first appeal, reported at 2004 WL 1834650 (Wash. App. August 17, 2004), the Court remanded the case for trial to determine if the bail agent, Signature Bail Bonds, had apparent authority to direct the clerk to apply part of Ranger’s payment of the face amount of two of its bonds (only one of which had not been forfeited) to satisfy forfeiture of another surety’s bonds. On remand, however, the trial court granted the clerk summary judgment based on an affidavit from another clerk that the standard of care for Oregon court clerks had not been violated. The Court of Appeals noted that the trial court had not decided the issues of fact as to apparent authority articulated in the first appellate opinion and again remanded the case.
