LAWSUITS NEWS & LEGAL INFORMATION

Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson

Appomattox, VA: (Apr-11-07) The town of Appomattox filed a lawsuit against Johnson, Mirmiran & Thompson (JMT), a Maryland-based engineering firm, accusing it of faulty engineering on one of the town's wastewater treatment plants. Appomattox filed a $2 million lawsuit in April 2005 after efforts to repair cracks and bows in the plant's storage basin, which was built in 2001, collapsed. The incident was a result of faulty engineering. In a settlement reached, JMT was ordered to pay $1.2 million towards repairs. JMT appealed the judgment and though town officials felt they would win, they decided to accept a settlement, which was $50,000 less than the first judgment issued, in order to avoid additional legal costs making the payout $1.15 million.
