Construction Contract Claim: Arbitration Council Case Study

… the runoff water entering through the defectively placed refill at the top of the liner, the government claims, was defective as had been established during inspections, which as per the contract, was the government’s duty.

The government argues that it had identified that the concrete at the top of the liner had not been done as per the provided guidelines.

This is a clear indication that the government has not been acting in good faith, and still is not. This is evident because the government still argues that “deficient placing of the refill was….

English Right of Set-Off Term Paper

… And, according to the Court of Appeals, claims that are merely contingent at the relevant date, but are not "due" are not employed in a set-off.

The right of combination differs from the right of set-off because, unlike set-off which assumes independent obligations between parties, combination allows full balancing of all liabilities.

… Education for Diversity

Were you surprised at the categories he chose to ground his discussion of diversity?

No, not really, the categories Spenser chose seem to be some of the most important and relevant categories of diversity in adult education, and some of them, as he notes, have been ignored for far too long.
