Reeves Prevails in Construction Arbitration:

Reeves prevailed in an American Arbitration Association Construction Industry Tribunal in the matter of Roof Technologies, Inc. v. Metairie Shopping Center, LLC. Client, Roof Technologies, exercised the arbitration provision in a contract that respondent asserted was invalid. The arbitration provision was upheld, and the matter went to arbitration. At arbitration, respondent argued that the contract was rescinded with cause due to alleged faulty workmanship, however, this was deemed either not credible or not relevant by the arbitrator, who awarded the client with anticipated profit, overhead, and judicial interest.
