Contracts Keyed to Kuney
Drews Co. v. Ledwith-Wolfe Associates, Inc.
The Drews Company, Inc. (Drews) (plaintiff) contracted to redesign a building for Ledwith-Wolfe Associates, Inc. (Ledwith) (defendant). Ledwith planned to open an eatery in the building. The parties kept running into differences about the venture from the earliest starting point, and in the end, Drews halted the performance. Drews brought suit for breach of agreement and Ledwith counterclaimed, looking for in addition to other things, lost benefits coming about because of developmental delays. As confirmation of lost benefits, Ledwith gave proof of gross benefits the restaurant made in the months following the inevitable consummation of the development. Ledwith's proprietor affirmed that he "would expect no less than thirty-three percent of that [gross figure] to be" net benefit. The trial court found for both sides on their agreement claims. The trial court granted Ledwith $14,000 in lost profits. Drews appealed with respect to the award of lost profits.
