The blog’s attorney-authors represent a contractor in a case against the U.S. Army. The case is in litigation before the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA), ASBCA No. 56758, Under Contract No. DABM06-03-C-0009.
The contractor we represent, American General Trading & Contracting (AGT), provided laundry services for U.S. Army soldiers in Iraq. In the legal case, AGT alleges, among other issues, that the Army included negligent estimates in the parties’ contract that severely overestimated the amount of clothing items to be laundered. Once the contract was performed, AGT had laundered substantially fewer laundry items than the average-item number estimated in the contract.
We recently filed a motion for summary judgment with ASBCA, trying to win the negligent estimate claim and other issues for AGT. The summary judgment brief is below.
