Highlight

A clause in a construction contract prohibiting a contractor from recovering damages for delay and granting an extension of time is enforceable if the requirements for a valid contract are satisfied.
Unambiguous language in a no damages for delay clause in a construction contract does not include an exception for uncontemplated delays and includes delays allegedly caused by an owner or another contractor.
A no damages for delay clause in a contract between a public entity and a private contractor is not unconscionable.
