Metropolitan Water District of Southern California resolves construction dispute with pipeline contractor on Inland Feeder Project

Clients Metropolitan Water District of Southern California

Jones Day obtained a settlement for the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) in a significant construction dispute involving MWD's billion dollar Inland Feeder tunnel and pipeline project. L.H. Woods, a pipeline contractor on the Highland portion of the project, sued MWD for delays and changed conditions. The case involved a novel claim of "delayed early completion," which alleges that although the contractor finished the work before the contractual completion date, the contractor was nonetheless damaged because it could have finished the work even earlier but for the actions and interference by the owner.
