Marra v. Brandywine Sch. Dist.Annotate this Case
This action arose from a bidding dispute between Bidder and Owner over a contract to install rubber flooring for a renovation project. Bidder filed a complaint against Owner, alleging that the biding specifications were ambiguous, the bidding process was unfair, and that Owner improperly imposed a sole source specification in violation of law. Bidder also sought recovery of attorneys' fees incurred in bringing this action. Later, Owner withdrew the solicitation, rendering Bidder's complaint moot. The parties subsequently filed cross-motions for summary judgment on Bidder's request for attorneys' fees. The Court of Chancery granted Owner's motion for summary judgment, holding that Bidder failed to demonstrate that Owner's conduct warranted an award of attorneys' fees and expenses.
