Chrtistos N. Kritikow and Jupiter Holding Co, LLC v. John T. Andersen, et. al., 38 Fla. L. Weekly D931a, Case No. 4D11-2575, issued April 24, 2013: Contractor sued owner for damages caused by breach of contract, and to foreclose a construction lien. The jury awarded the damages for breach of contract, offset by delay damages incurred by the owner, but the court directed a verdict for contractor on owner’s counterclaim for damages, based on owner’s failure to prove the actual costs of completion and correction of work. As a result, the judgment was reversed and remanded for a new trial on damages and the amount of the construction lien.
