Dynalectric Co. of Nevada, Inc. v. Clark & Sullivan Constructors, Inc.
Citation:127 New. 480, 255 P.3d 286 (2011)
The case arises from a dispute between appellant Dynalectric Company of Nevada, Inc., a subcontractor, and respondent Clark and Sullivan Constructors, Inc. (C&S), a general contractor, concerning a public works project. The Project involved the expansion of the University Medical Center (UMC) in Las Vegas. In 2004, UMC solicited bids for the Project. C&S sought bids from subcontractors. Dynalectric submitted a bid to C&S to perform the electrical work for the Project and repeatedly assured C&S of the accuracy of its bid. C&S was the lower bidder, and UMC awarded it the prime contract. Subsequently, Dynalectric repudiated its obligations to C&S and refused to negotiate with C&S. C&S therefore contracted with three replacement subcontractors to complete the electrical work for the Project. C&S then sued Dynalectric for breach of contract, promissory estoppel and others.
