Chapter 9: Buffalo’s field of dreams: Kenford Company v. Erie County
AbstractWhen Erie County breached its contract to build a domed stadium, it was sued for damages. In litigation lasting eighteen years the courts finally rejected most of the damage claims. Some claims were for the plaintiff’s lost appreciation on adjacent lands; other losses were for the lost management contract. Some of the claims were rejected because the court applied the new business rule; others were rejected because the court concluded that the county had not assumed the risk. This chapter concludes that the results were correct.
