On June 4, 2018, a federal jury in the Central District of California awarded $45 million to the Plaintiff Contractor in a dispute with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.  The dispute involved liability for the Contractor’s costs to accelerate its work on a $440 million power plant modernization project, which were incurred due to delays in delivery of equipment for which LADWP was responsible under the Contract. LADWP filed a counterclaim seeking over $190 Million and was awarded $1 Million by the jury.

Watt Tieder’s trial team included Shelly L. Ewald, David F. McPherson, Rebecca S. Glos, and Trip Stewart.
