$23.4 Million Judgment Win

Following a complex three-month jury trial against the Port of Houston Authority—and a resulting jury verdict for client Zachry Construction Corporation—the trial court entered final judgment on April 28, 2010 awarding Plaintiff Zachry $23.4 million in damages.  This breach of contract lawsuit arose from the Port’s last-minute rejection of a contractually approved construction method Zachry intended to use to build a 2000-foot wharf facility. 

Prior to trial, the firm successfully defeated several summary judgment motions filed by the Port seeking to dismiss the case in its entirety.
