Law360, New York (November 03, 2011, 7:09 PM ET) -- The Fifth Appellate District of the California Court of Appeal recently issued an opinion that has important implications to all stakeholders in California’s construction industry. In Greg Opinski Construction Inc. v. City of Oakdale, Nos. F060219, F060727 (Cal. Ct. App. Oct. 6, 2011), the California Court of Appeal held that where a contract contains specific requirements for obtaining an extension of time, and a contractor fails to comply with those requirements, it is barred from later contesting its liability for any project delays.
