Successful Government Contracting Verdict

By: Abby Pryor

We are excited to announce that today we obtained a favorable award for our client, a local Chesapeake government contractor. Our client obtained a jury verdict for $3.8M in Chesapeake Circuit Court. In the case, we were successful in showing that the defendants tortiously interfered with our client’s expectation of receiving a government contract to perform work on Pier 34 at Little Creek Naval Base. The jury awarded direct, consequential, and punitive damages.

Virginia Lawyers Weekly reported the story on August 28, 2017 here, and later reported it as the largest jury verdict in the Commonwealth of Virginia in 2017.
