Government ordered to pay US$50 million for cancelling contract

Two South Florida companies have won a US$50 million judgment against the governmental National Institute of Hydraulic Resources of the Dominican Republic over a canceled contract to build an irrigation system.

A Miami Federal Court issued a judgment by default on June 10 after the DR agency failed to respond to the suit. The plaintiffs in the suit were Architectural Ingenieria Siglo (AIS) and Sun Land LLC.
