On Wednesday, November 12, 2014, at noon our DC office (located at 1900 K Street NW) will host the ABA PCLS Contract Claims and Disputes Resolution Committee’s monthly meeting, which will feature a panel discussion about government claims. Justin Ganderson will be moderating a panel comprised of Judge Lynda T. O’Sullivan (ASBCA), Beth Ferrell (Dentons, Partner), Paul Pompeo (Arnold & Porter, Partner), David Koeppel (Counsel for Procurement and Contracts at United States Department of Labor, Office of the Solicitor) and Robert Neill (Trial Attorney, Contract & Fiscal Law Division, US Army Legal Services Agency). They will be discussing a variety of topics, including the CDA’s 6-year statute of limitations, the impact of the Federal Circuit’s 2010 M. Maropakis Carpentry decision (finding that the contractor was required to file a claim in order to raise certain defenses to the government’s liquidated damages assessment and set-off), the ASBCA’s recent Beechcraft Defense Company decision (ordering the government to file a complaint regarding its underlying claim), the factors the government reviews when deciding whether to assert a claim against a contractor. Please contact Justin Ganderson if you would like to attend in person or by phone.
