qtq80-RONPhp(November 10, 2016.)  The Firm won a Petition for Writ of Administrative Mandate in San Francisco Superior Court on behalf of a construction subcontractor and against a city who unlawfully removed the subcontractor from a large public works project over the objection of the prime contractor.  Attorneys Kris Cox and Erin Reding successfully demonstrated that the city’s actions violated the Subletting and Subcontracting Fair Practices Act.  The Firm also showed that, although the city included language in its contract allowing the subcontractor to be removed, the city’s action were still illegal.  In a rare move, the Court granted the Petition and commanded the public entity to withdraw its order removing the subcontractor.  (Synergy Project Management, Inc. v. City and County of San Francisco, San Francisco Superior Court Case No. CPF-16-514783.)
