A/E Team completes two-week Chicago trial of $11.5 million case against Corps of Engineers

Macdonald Devin’s Architects & Engineers Professional Liability team returned to Dallas this week after completing a two-week trial in Chicago before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.  The A/E Team defended the architect/engineer professional in an alleged design defect case brought by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for $11.5 million arising out of flooding of a combined storm and sewage overflow distribution chamber.  Post-trial briefing will be completed in 90 days.  The A/E team will then argue the case to the presiding judge in Washington, DC in December.  A decision is expected in January, 2019.  Lead counsel for the A/E team is Greg Ziegler.  Associate Ty Vessels assisted and Darshea Allen-Harriel provided paralegal support.
