Arlington, VA – Bean, Kinney & Korman announced today that an Alexandria Circuit Court jury awarded its client, Blue Line Media, a $1,138,500 jury verdict on behalf of Blue Line Media, Inc. against the Alexandria website developer, Redmon Group, Inc.
According to the plaintiff’s attorneys Raighne Delaney and David Temeles of Bean, Kinney & Korman, Blue Line owned an internet law enforcement recruiting business located at www.lawenforcementjobs.com. Blue Line hired Redmon Group to design, build and deliver a custom website for the business. Redmon Group estimated the project would cost $598,441.
Under the Virginia Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act, incorporated into the contract by law, Redmon Group had a duty to design, build and deliver the website in accordance with industry standards and practices. The evidence showed that Blue Line paid Redmon Group in excess of $543,000 before cancelling the contract when Redmon Group refused to allow an inspection of the website software, among other reasons.
Industry standards expert Todd Trivett testified that Redmon Group failed to build and deliver the website in accordance with industry standards and practices. Valuation expert Mark Vogel testified that the market value of the website that Redmon Group failed to deliver was $1.4 million. Redmon Group counterclaimed for $158,000 due to Blue Line’s refusal to pay certain invoices. The jury found for Blue Line on its complaint in the amount of $1,138,500. The jury found for Blue Line on Redmon Group’s counterclaim.
“We were very pleased with the outcome of this verdict for our client Blue Line Media,” said Raighne. “We feel that their expectations from Redmon Group were fair and in the end, that was recognized appropriately.”
