Hitching Post Owners, Insurance Company Settle Suit

Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — An insurance company has reached a confidential settlement agreement with the company that owns Cheyenne’s Hitching Post Inn.

The landmark hotel’s main lodge was destroyed by an arson fire a few years ago.

U.S. District Judge Nancy Freudenthal of Cheyenne this week approved a request from National Surety Corporation and CJM Hospitality Inc. to halt action in the lawsuit until October to give them time to settle.

Ajay Jariwala, a New Mexico hotelier, was a principal in CJM. Jariwala pleaded guilty in September to conspiracy to commit arson in connection with the fire and was sentenced to serve six years in prison. He’s now appealing that conviction.

National Surety had sued CJM claiming it incurred substantial costs in investigating a fraudulent $13-million claim from the company.
