"DeAngelis is suing Walbridge, who has turned around and sued Grosse Ile," said Tim Galligan, an attorney for the township.
"We are very confident in our position and don't feel that the claim has any merit," Galligan
said."Before the project began we provided five to seven soil borings to see what type of rocks were there and how far down they were.They were certainly free to do further tests."
Walbridge's lawsuit says that because of the delay starting the project, the company had to work into the winter, which created additional costs.
"The project started 60 to 70 days late because of delays getting permits," Galligan
The lawsuits are "in the very early stages," according to Galligan
, who estimates another four to six months of "discovery time" and almost another year before a trial date is set.
