Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit - 331 F.2d 741 (4th Cir. 1964) Argued April 20, 1964
Decided April 23, 1964

Robert V. Zener, Atty. Dept. of Justice (John W. Douglas, Asst. Atty. Gen., Alan S. Rosenthal, Atty., Dept. of Justice, and Robert H. Cowen, U. S. Atty., on brief), for appellant.

Wallace C. Murchison, Wilmington, N. C. (Carter, Murchison, Fox & Newton, Wilmington, N. C., on brief), for appellee.

Before HAYNSWORTH, BRYAN and J. SPENCER BELL, Circuit Judges.


The United States appeals from a judgment of the district court. The Government was held liable for its negligent failure to comply with its contract to make timely delivery of equipment. The record amply supports the court's findings of fact. We find no error of law. George A. Fuller Co. v. United States, 69 F. Supp. 409, 108 Ct. Cl. 70 (1947); Chalender v. United States, 119 F. Supp. 186, 127 Ct. Cl. 557 (1954).
