Summary Judgment Obtained in Dispute Between Contractors

Mike Breen was successful in obtaining a summary judgment on behalf of a subcontractor who performed renovation work at a shopping center. A suit was brought by the landowner against the general contractor alleging defective work. The general in turn sued the various subcontractors that were hired for the project. The defense successfully argued that the settlement of a mechanic’s lien between the subcontractor and landowner encompassed the settlement of any defective work allegedly performed by the subcontractor, and therefore the general contractor could not maintain its third party suit.
