WEINBERG WHEELER (GA) WINS HIGHLY PUBLICIZED CONTRACT DISPUTE
Weinberg, Wheeler, Hudgins, Gunn & Dial, LLC partner David A. Dial and Nick Panayotopoulos, Of Counsel, won partial Summary Judgment on behalf of client Dawson Building Contractors, Inc. ("Dawson") against the Public Building Authority ("PBA") of Hunstville, Ala., in a contractual dispute arising from the construction of the new Metro Jail.
Madison County Circuit Judge Laura Hamilton granted a motion filed by WWHGD that sought a declaration that the parties' contract had been terminated for the convenience of the city and could not later be converted to a "for cause" termination.
The PBA had sought tens of millions of dollars against Dawson for alleged breaches of the parties' contract. The ruling is subject to appeal. In this well-publicized case, Panayotopoulos was interviewed by investigative news reporter Georgi Bragg of NBC affiliate WAFF regarding the ruling in favor of WWHGD.
