J&H Reinforcing & Structural Erectors, Inc., v. OSFC

R. Russell O'Rourke

Case Conclusion Date:September 28, 2012

Practice Area:Construction / Development

Outcome:Pending in the Franklin County Court of Appeals

Description:We are Amicus Counsel for the American Subcontractors Association and ASA of Ohio. J&H was delayed in its performance. The State prescribed contract forms require a contractor asking for an extension of time to supply a significant amount of information, including information which may not be available to it, particularly if it is not the cause of the delay. The trial court found in favor of J&H. The OSFC appealed arguing that strict compliance with the contract documents was appropriate.
