GBV Associates Jennifer Mazawey and Dina M. Mastellone Win Challenge of Award of a General Construction Contract Under the New Jersey Public School Contracts Law
GBV Associates Jennifer Mazawey and Dina M. Mastellone successfully obtained the dismissal of a claim brought by an unsuccessful bidder challenging a Board of Education's decision to award a general construction contract for a new elementary school. The unsuccessful bidder claimed the consent of surety submitted by the lowest bidder was defective. On June 24, 2008, the Superior Court, Essex County (Giles, F. Michael, J.S.C.) upheld the decision of the Board of Education, denied Plaintiff's request for a preliminary injunction and dismissed the Complaint in Lieu of Prerogative Writ in its entirety.
