U.S. 8th Circuit Contract Cases

The Weitz Co. v. MH Washington, LLC

The project was fraught with difficulties, and Weitz sued MacKenzie, MH Washington, LLC (an entity of which MacKenzie was the managing member), and Summit Steel Fabricators, Inc. (a subcontractor hired by Weitz at the behest of MacKenzie) for breach of contract.
