Jury verdict awarding our client in excess of $900,000+ in U.S. District Court on behalf of a wrongfully terminated general contractor
Our client was the prime contractor for construction of a new clay lined landfill in rural Vermont. The Owner terminated the contractor shortly before substantial completion and filed suit for completion costs. We countersued for wrongful termination and breach of contract. We pursued damages for lost profits on the project, termination costs, and delay damages. The jury found in our client's favor following a three week trial in Burlington. The jury award approximately 90% of the damages claimed for a total of $923,000. [J.A. McDonald v. WSI Moretown Landfill, Inc.]
