Contract Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Roy, Christopher


AC41463 - Clasby v. Zimmerman ("The defendant, Bradford Estates, LLC, is a general contracting business hired by the plaintiffs, Robert Clasby and Krista Clasby, to raise and remodel their shoreline home, which was extensively damaged by Hurricane Sandy.The parties agreed to arbitrate disputes that arose during the construction project, and the defendant now appeals from the judgment of the trial court denying its application to confirm a February 4, 2017 arbitration award. The defendant contends that the February 4, 2017 award conclusively established that the defendant was entitled to collect from the plaintiffs a balance of $51,856.65 in materials and labor for certain cabinetry work."

"....For the reasons that follow, we affirm in part and reverse in part the judgment of the trial court, and remand the matter with direction to grant the application to confirm the February 4, 2017 award, but to deny the remainder of the relief requested in the application.")
