If you hired somebody to do a job, and that job wasn’t done to your
satisfaction, odds are you’d ask for your money back.
Well, that’s exactly what Massachusetts Attorney General Tom Reilly is
that Reilly is planning to sue Bechtel/Parsons Brinckerhoff – the main
contractor for the leaky Big Dig project – and other firms involved if they do
not reach an agreement about more than 200 complaints of shoddy workmanship in
Reilly is demanding that contractors refund $108 million, a relatively
small portion of the more than $14 billion spent on the project so far. It is
also a small part of the original $3 billion the project was supposed to cost.
According to The Boston Globe,
Reilly’s office sent a letter to the companies in February, seeking $67 million
from Bechtel and $41 million from other companies involved in the project.
