George S. Mahaffey, Jr. and Craig S. Brodsky successfully litigated a breach of contract case against a subcontractor on behalf of a large, local construction company. The construction company had a contract to perform services at the Patuxent River Naval Air Station. Unfortunately, due to the actions of the construction company’s subcontractors, a subcontractor employee died in an accident on the job site. A stop work order was issued and the construction company suffered significant damages, both direct and in terms of lost contracts and injury to reputation. The construction company filed suit against the subcontractors in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland, Meltech v. Beech Grove Construction, et al., No. 8:11-cv-00160, and a settlement was recovered on behalf of the construction company.
