CIVIL ACTION

  1. 1677CV01366

A.L. PRIME ENERGY CONSULTANT, INC.

vs.

MASSACHUSETTS BAY TRANSPORTATION AUTHORITY

MEMORANDUM OF DECISION AND ORDER ON

DEFENDANT’S MOTION TO DISMISS

In July 2016, defendant Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) terminated its two-year fuel supply agreement with plaintiff A.L. Prime Energy Consultant, Inc. (Prime). The MBTA explained that thetermination was made pursuant to its exercise of a contractual right that permitted termination for convenience.The MBTA terminated the contract in order to take advantage of cost savings it believed it could achieve by purchasing fuel through the Commonwealth’s existing statewide fuel contract.  Prime alleges that the MBTA abused its discretion when it invoked the termination for convenience provision and that therefore the MBTA is liable for breach of contract and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.  The matter is now before the Court on the MBTA’s motion to dismiss pursuant to Mass. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(6).  For the reasons that follow, the motion is DENIED.

G4S Technology LLC v. Massachusetts Technology Park Corporation (Lawyers Weekly No. 12-007-17)

COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS

 

SUFFOLK, ss                                                                                               SUPERIOR COURT

CIVIL ACTION

  1. 2014-02998-BLS2

 

 

G4S TECHNOLOGY LLC,

Plaintiff,

 

vs.

 

MASSACHUSETTS TECHNOLOGY PARK CORPORATION,

Defendant.

 

MEMORANDUM OF DECISION AND ORDER ON

DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT

            This is a contract-based dispute arising from a state and federally-funded project to design and construct a fiber optic network in western Massachusetts.  Plaintiff G4S Technology LLC (G4S), the design-builder on the project, instituted the lawsuit claiming that  the defendant Massachusetts Technology Park Corporation (MTPC) wrongfully denied a $ 10.1 Million “Request for Adjustment” claim and  improperly withheld an additional $ 4.1 Million based on unfounded claims of late delivery and poor quality of work.  MTPC counterclaimed, alleging   fraud and violation of Chapter 93A.[1]  In an earlier decision, this Court allowed MTPC’s motion for summary judgment as to G4S’s claims, relying on appellate case law which held that an intentional breach by one of the parties to a contract prevented it from recovering on its own contract-based claims so long as that breach was not de minimis.  See Memorandum of Decision and Order dated March 29, 2016 (the March 2016 Decision).
