David Fine quoted in Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, "In rare decision, judge dissolves lien in construction case


A Superior Court judge has determined that a contractor's second notice of contract was not only inaccurate but filed so willfully and intentionally as to warrant the rare remedy of dissolving it.

According to Attorney David Fine, chair of Mirick O'Connell's Construction Law Group, this case "offers a good reminder about the importance of being able to back up payment claims with documentation.  There is always a level of gamesmanship involved in any litigation of disputed contract claims like these, but you cannot make up claims whole cloth."
