The Maryland Court of Special Appeals (On January 23, 2014) has affirmed the $1,968,417.43 jury verdict in favor of the City of Salisbury in the Wicomico County Circuit Court against Construction Dynamics Group, Inc. The case was the last in a long line revolving around the Salisbury Wastewater Treatment Plant. The total amount collected by the city was just under 13 million dollars. CDG has 30 days to request that Maryland’s highest court, the Court of Appeals, hear another appeal of this case. If CDG does file such a request within 30 days from the date of this decision, then the Court of Appeals will decide whether to hear the appeal or not.
If CDG takes no further action, then the case is concluded after 30 days, and the City of Salisbury may proceed to budget the money for appropriate purposes.
