The case between an engineering firm for the Port of Astoria and a company it hired to pave a runway at the Astoria Regional Airport has been settled.
Engineering firm Harper Houf Peterson Righellis claimed it provided $129,067 worth of services to Corpac Construction but was only paid $58,403. Corpac claimed parts of the engineering firm’s contract were ambiguous, that the company overbilled and that it did not perform parts of the contract properly.
A judge had previously denied the engineering firm’s attempts at partial judgment before trial, agreeing with Corpac there were factual issues. Darien Louiselle, an attorney for Corpac, said the parties later agreed to disagree before reaching a confidential settlement to end the case.
