State of California Judge William Q. Liebmann of the Ventura County Superior Court has awarded FTR International Inc. nearly $5.5 million in contract claims against the Rio School District. This payment compensates FTR for the extra work it performed, disruption-induced delays, unpaid contract balance, penalties, and interest on the Rio Del Norte School project, which was successfully completed by the contractor 10 years ago. Moreover, the court ruled in FTR’s favor, dismissing the false claims that were alleged by the Rio School District in retaliation to FTR’s claims. FTR will recover all lawsuit costs, including attorney’s fees, which will be determined by Judge Liebmann within the next 60 days. FTR is pleased to finally be vindicated of this injustice after a decade of one of the lengthiest trials in Ventura County history.
