Represented MACTEC, Inc., an environmental remediation design/build contractor, in a dispute against Bechtel Jacobs Company (BJC) concerning a remediation system on a site used in the production of nuclear armaments in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. MACTEC asserted claims against BJC as the Management & Integration contractor, and BJC counterclaimed for money it spent supposedly correcting MACTEC's alleged defective work. After a two-week bench trial in the U.S. District Court, the judge issued 174 pages of findings and conclusions and held that BJC breached the contract and acted in bad faith. The court awarded our client, MACTEC, a large sum for damages, including interest and attorneys’ fees. The court also rejected BJC's entire counterclaim. On appeal, BJC challenged the trial court's judgment on many fronts, including the testimony of MACTEC's expert witness at the trial. The 6th Circuit rejected BJC's arguments, in their entirety, and affirmed the trial court's judgment.
