We filed an action asserting claims for breach of contract and violation of the Pennsylvania Contractor and Subcontractor Payment Act. After discovery, we filed a motion for summary judgment. The court granted the motion. The court also awarded attorneys' fees, interest and penalties provided for under the Act, which brought the judgment to over twice the original unpaid amount.
