A few months ago I wrote an article for Construction Executive Magazine about a Western District of Pennsylvania case, Sauer, Inc. v. Honeywell, that discussed the devils that exist in the details of standard lien waivers and releases and the dangers that lurk for those that do not pay attention to them.
My article that appears in today’s Legal Intelligencer which discusses both the Honeywell case and a recent case from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, First General Construction Corp. v. Kasco Construction Co. Inc, concerning the same subject.
It was also the subject of my June 15, 2011 blog post.
You now have been warned. Review those lien waivers.
