Weekly Poll (10)

A Bahamas developer recently filed suit against China Construction America Inc. for $2.25 billion in damages and charges the firm with submitting fraudulent bills and collecting undeserved fees in regard to the bloated and delayed $3.9 million Baha Mar resort. Do you think the amount of damages the developer is claiming is accurate?


The $3B Atlantic Sunrise natural gas pipeline began construction in September, having received the last of the necessary state permits earlier that month.

Do you agree?

Colorado is revamping its construction defects law to give developers and homeowners a chance to work out problems outside of the courtroom. Is this a good idea?


A pipeline company was recently indicted on criminal charges for knowingly discharging a pollutant into state waters and wildlife charges; one employee faces up to three years in prison if convicted. Are criminal charges appropriate in such a case?
