C. A. Acquisition Newco, LLC v. DHL Express (USA), Inc., No. 12-1013 (1st Cir. 2012)Annotate this Case
In this breach of contract case, defendant DHL Express (USA), Inc. ("DHL") appealed from a judgment on the pleadings for plaintiff C.A. Acquisition Newco LLC ("Newco"). The district court concluded that DHL had terminated the contract and awarded the $50,000 per month provided for in the contract in the event of a "termination." In total, the court entered final judgment for Newco in the amount of $413,333 plus interest. The First Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the judgment of the district court, holding that the contract was ambiguous as to whether DHL's actions constituted a termination under the contract. Remanded.
