More on the Big Dig

The Globe has a brief overview of various lawyers' views of the chances for the gross negligence claim to stick.  That story also confirms my prior guess, that the gross negligence claim is the hook for seeking more than the $150 million set as the cap by the parties' contract.

Only Bechtel and Modern Continental Construction are alleged to have been grossly negligent; the rest of the parties are being sued for ordinary negligence (and some for contract breach).
