Construction Litigation - Payment Dispute

Mr. Vaughn represented a sub-contractor in a payment dispute with a general contractor in a case tried to a jury in federal court in Gulfport, Mississippi. The adverse party sought over half a million dollars in delay damages, while the firm's client asked that the jury award the unpaid amount of the contract plus consequential damages. After a week long trial, the jury returned a verdict awarding every dollar sought in damages by the client and awarded nothing to the adverse party.
