Construction litigation hopes to stop project

Though construction projects can often bring new amenities or attractions to an area, these projects are not always met with open arms by the people in the area. In some cases, people may believe that the project will bring more negative impacts than benefits or that it will take up land or space that should be protected. If so, it is possible that companies and developers need to defend their projects in construction litigation.

Florida readers may be interested in a lawsuit that was recently the subject of a court ruling in another state. According to reports, a group known as Protect Our Parks has filed a lawsuit in efforts to stop the construction of the Obama Presidential Center, which is supposed to be built in a park in the area. The representatives for Protect Our Parks believe that public parkland is being confiscated in order to build the center.

The Chicago Park District, which is the defendant in the case, attempted to have the suit dismissed by claiming that the Protect Our Parks organization did not have legal standing to move forward with the lawsuit. However, a judge recently ruled that the lawsuit could proceed. It was noted that multiple construction companies would play roles in the project depending on the outcomes of this current lawsuit.

Construction litigation can cause many issues for projects. In some cases, the projects may only be delayed while conflicts are addressed, and in other cases, projects could be terminated completely. If Florida construction company owners, project developers or other parties are facing issues relating to their construction projects, they may want to better understand what legal options they have for handling such issues.
