The Indiana Supreme Court will decide whether engineering subcontractors should be held liable for millions of dollars in cost overruns in a recent renovation of Indianapolis’ central public library.
The court will hear oral arguments in the $25 million lawsuit Sept. 15.
The library sued the subcontractors following $50 million in cost overruns stemming from construction defects in the main library’s underground garage.
Boone Circuit Court found in favor of the subcontractors, Charlier Clark & Linard PC, and the Indiana Court of Appeals upheld the decision. The library appealed to the Indiana Supreme Court.
