Abstract:

On June 28, 1985, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Ohio River Division, and Tenn Tom Constructors, Inc., a joint venture headed by Morrison Knudsen, Inc. used a mini-trial to settle a 55.6 million including interest claim for 17.25 million. The claim was originally filed in 1979 charging differing site conditions, i.e. increased moisture in the soil, during a project that required the removal and disposal of ninety-five million cubic yards of earth. This case highlights 1 important role played by decision-makers on both sides 2 the role of attorneys as presenters advisors 3 the impact of organizational pressures on decision-makers regarding settlement decisions and 4 the impact of districtdivision relationships on decisions reached in mini- trials.
