BTLG client wins defense verdict in $3M contract litigation

In a Memorandum Opinion entered November 21, 2014 after the conclusion of a six-day trial and post-trial submissions, the Circuit Court for Charles County entered judgment in favor of BTLG's client AB Construction, defendant in the matter captioned as Tubohaul Inc. v. AB Construction Inc. et al. case number 08-C-11-002541.  Plaintiff Turbohaul Inc. had originally sought compensatory damages in excess of $3 million (plus unspecified punitive damages) asserting various claims of contract, quasi-contract and business torts, arising from the allegation that Turbohaul Inc. should have received a subcontract from AB Construction related to a State of Maryland environmental remediation project.  In addition to claims for compensatory and punitive damages, the Plaintiff had requested sanctions related to alleged discovery violations, including spoliation claims related to lost e-mail and electronic data.  The court entered judgment in favor of AB Construction, and denied sanctions.
