Brentwood Glass Co. v. Pal's Glass Serv., Inc.Annotate this Case
Brentwood Glass filed a petition against the County and several other defendants, asserting, inter alia, a mechanic’s lien claim against all defendants for unpaid work on a construction project and an action against St. Louis County for failing to require a public works construction bond mandated by Mo. Rev. Stat. 107.170. Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment on the mechanic’s lien claim. The County also asserted it was entitled to summary judgment on the bond claim because section 107.170 did not apply. The circuit court entered judgment in favor of Defendants.The Supreme Court reversed judgment on the mechanic’s lien claim and affirmed in all other respects, holding (1) the circuit court erred in granting summary judgment on the lien claim for lack of proof of notice, and genuine issues of material fact existed preventing summary judgment on the lien claim; and (2) judgment was proper on Brentwood Glass’s bond claim against the County.
