NOTICE:  All slip opinions and orders are subject to formal revision and are superseded by the advance sheets and bound volumes of the Official Reports.  If you find a typographical error or other formal error, please notify the Reporter of Decisions, Supreme Judicial Court, John Adams Courthouse, 1 Pemberton Square, Suite 2500, Boston, MA 02108-1750;  (617) 557-1030;       12‑P‑968                                        Appeals Court   CAMERON PAINTING, INC.  vs.  UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS.     No. 12‑P‑968. Hampshire.     January 7, 2013.  ‑  February 25, 2013.

The terms of the contract required that prior to the commencement of a particular painting project, both Cameron and the University must reach an agreed-upon price for the particular project.  Over the course of the contract period, the parties could not agree upon any quotes submitted by Cameron for any painting projects at the University.  The University therefore authorized no work for Cameron under the contract terms, and notified Cameron on February 16, 2007, it would […]
