Earlier this year, the Virginia Supreme Court decided Martin Brothers Contractors, Inc. v. Virginia Military Institute, taking the opportunity to revisit its decision in Blake Construction.

The Virginia Military Institute (“VMI”) contracted with Martin Brothers to renovate VMI’s main dining facility. During the project, VMI requested changes resulting in a 270-day delay. VMI agreed that it alone was responsible for the delay. Martin Brothers sought $430,242.56 in delay damages plus the costs of recovery.
