Decision of Court of Appeals in Favor of OSU on Fisher College of Business Stands

Kegler Brown Construction Newsletter

The Ohio Supreme Court has declined to accept Cleveland Construction's appeal, meaning that the decision of the Franklin County Court of Appeals upholding the finding that Cleveland Construction was not "responsible" to perform the Fisher College of Business project stands (see September, 1997 Newsletter). This decision likely will encourage other public owners to take a serious look at the "responsibility" of bidders, and that the low bidder will not always be the successful bidder.
