A federal judge with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims has awarded the Municipality of Anchorage more than $367 million in damages for failed construction performed during an expansion project for the city’s port.
The U.S. Court of Federal Claims ruled in favor of the municipality back in December over the city’s port expansion project, finding that the government breached its 2003 and 2011 agreements, or memorandums of understanding, with the municipality.
Anchorage had requested more than $367 million in damages in its suit against the U.S. Maritime Administration. In Thursday’s opinion, Judge Edward Damich ordered that the city will be awarded $367,446,809 in damages over the expansion project.
