A large Midwest contractor
sought to defend a suit by a subcontractor
alleging more than $3.1 million in delay
and inefficiency damages, as well as an
additional $44,000 in requested change
orders, related to the renovation and
expansion of a hospital.
In the decision, received two
months after the post-trial briefing, the
judge agreed with virtually every defense
argument our team presented by our team.
The judge rejected claims for delay and
inefficiency and awarded $8,436 for a few
outstanding change orders, or roughly 0.27
percent of the plaintiff’s claim.
