Firm Fends off Challenge to General Dynamics Contract

The firm successfully fended off a challenge to a $562 million government contract awarded to client General Dynamics.  At issue was a complaint by AM General LLC over the U.S. Special Operations Command’s decision to award a contract for 1,297 light troop carriers to General Dynamics.  After the Government Accountability Office denied AM General’s protest last year, AM General took the case to court.  The U.S. Federal Claims Court recently rejected the protest, and AM General said it did not plan to appeal.  The team representing General Dynamics includes Partners David A. Churchill, Kevin C. Dwyer and Daniel E. Chudd and Associates Charles L. Capito and Ethan E. Marsh.  News of the Court’s decision was covered in Law360.
