HIGHWAY CONTRACTOR VS. FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

Geoff McConnell represented an Idaho highway contractor in dispute with federal government officials regarding additional costs due to the government's interference with contractor's material sources for a project in a National Park located within the region. The dispute involved the application of the sovereign acts doctrine and resulted in a lengthy bench trial, after which decision for all damages was entered in favor of the contractor.
