Robert J. Dietz Wins Directed Verdict For Contractor Client
July 9th, 2013
This June, BrigliaMcLaughlin won a directed verdict for a general contractor client against two sub-subcontractors in a multi-day bench trial in Maryland state court. Lead counsel Rob Dietz successfully defended the claims brought against a general contractor on Kohl’s Department Store projects in Easton, Maryland and Roanoke, Virginia. The plaintiffs attempted to assert claims against the contractor arising out of a settlement agreement between the general contractor and a subcontractor. The court granted the general contractor's motion for a directed verdict, ruling that the terms of the settlement agreement were unambiguous and did not require the general contractor to pay the unsubstantiated claims of the sub-subcontractors. The court further ruled that the plaintiffs had failed to properly substantiate their claims.
