A schedule’s a schedule – Abiding by a recovery schedule is key to preserving legal rights
Abstract: No matter what’s being built, a schedule’s a schedule. And a court can use a recovery schedule to justify early default termination of even the biggest of contracts. This article looks at a recent case involving household names such as McDonnell Douglas, General Dynamics and, last but not least, the U.S. Navy, that provides ample evidence of this. McDonnell Douglas v. United States, 76 Fed. Cl. 385 (2007).
