Court of Special Appeals Rules for Salisbury for 2M Additional Funds Recovered in Waste Water Treatment Plant Litigation

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.

The WWTP Enhanced Nutrient Removal (ENR) Upgrade design is in progress. The WWTP will be upgraded to meet the State’s effluent requirements by December 31, 2017.

This should be enough to pay for a blue ribbon panel to study how to bring it up to standards.

Jim Ireton is over on Facebook thumping his chest about this. He also posted it to his Wordpress Jim Ireton for Mayor website. He is disgusting and proves being mayor is all about Jim Ireton. He is acting like this is the biggest accomplishment being Mayor. This award is less than $2 million. Didn't it cost the tax payers $80 Million??

The city probably spent that much in legal fees.
