Upcoming Events

ENR Webinar on Joint Ventures:  June 26

ABA Forum on the Construction Industry Webinar:  July 23
  • I will be discussing the Metcalf Decision at this webinar on July 23.  Details and registration information will follow.  We are, by the way, still waiting to get the government's brief on that case.  The Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has just granted a second extension of time to the Justice Department, with a total number of days extended to 68, on top of the 40 days that Justice had to answer the brief under the rules.  Apparently, the days when one has to submit briefing according to a deadline have past. 

DBIA NW Region Annual Meeting and Summer Social:  July 25

DBIA Federal Project Delivery Symposium:  August 20-22

  • The DBIA National Federal Project Delivery Symposium will be held in Washington DC at the Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor, MD over my birthday.  If I see you there, I (like every other woman in her late 40's) expect you to lie through your teeth about my appearance.  Remember, the key phrase is "There is no way you can be that old."  Also acceptable:  "You must have graduated from law school when you were a mere child."  More information at
