Be sure to check out this month’s section on “Construction Litigation” as the Municipality of Anchorage battles over the suspended Anchorage port construction project by filing a formal complaint against three contractors in state court. Also of note in this section, after a two year battle over the city hall construction project, the city of Meridian is required by the Idaho Supreme Court to pay the contractor over $1.87 million in award and legal fees stemming from a litigation over only $324,808 in unpaid invoices.
