A & C lawyers John Ahlers, Paul Cressman and Bruce Cohen have been working closely with the Association of General Contractors (AGC) on legislation to address the contractor notice forfeiture dilemma created by the Wa Supreme Court’s decision in Mike M. Johnson. The Bill will be introduced in the next legislative session in January 2008. Significant ground work has been done by A &C to provide legislators and stakeholders with input on the legislative fix. The Mike M. Johnson case was previously discussed in this blog and generally holds that contractors must strictly comply with the notice and claim requirements in their contracts. Failure to do so can result in a waiver of the contractor’s claim. The proposed legislation will be attached to this article shortly.
