Oral Argument 3/31/2014

Highlight

If a party fails to plead and adequately brief unconscionability to the district court, the issue will not be considered on appeal.
A no damages for delay clause exculpates an owner from liability for damages resulting from delays in the performance of the contractor's work.
Active interference is a well-recognized exception to the enforceability of a no damages for delay clause.
A district court's determination of the amount of damages caused by a breach of contract is a finding of fact subject to the clearly erroneous standard of review.
