Thomas J. Obrokta, Jr., Attorney at Law, for claimant.
Joy M. Cavallo, Assistant Attorney General, for respondent.
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the
allegations in the Notice of Claim and respondent's Answer.
Claimant seeks the sum of $7,788.00 for an accepted bid that
was negligently revoked and then rebid. However, claimant has
agreed to settle and relinquish this claim against respondent for
the amount of $5,000.00. Through the settlement agreement,
respondent admits that claimant is entitled to recover a sum
certain and that the amount of $5,000.00 is a fair and reasonable.
The Court is aware that respondent does not have a fiscal method
for paying claims of this nature; therefore, the claim has been
submitted to this Court for determination.
In accordance with the settlement agreement entered into by
the parties, the Court hereby makes an award to claimant in the
amount of $5,000.00.
Award of $5,000.00.
