Spelman College v. Russell/Moody, A Joint Venture, H.J. Russell & Company, C.D. Moody Construction Company, et al.
Petitioner Spelman College brought a multi-million dollar arbitration case against a joint venture between two general contractors for allegedly defective construction of the college’s administration building. HPY represented the general contractors and negotiated significant financial contribution from three subcontractors.
Settled Spelman’s claim against the general contractors in arbitration for less than 1/3 of the claim, then continued the arbitration for the general contractors against a subcontractor for indemnification and obtained a significant award in favor of the general contractors.
