Trial set in city lawsuit

A contractor's lawsuit against the city of Woodbury over a four-year-old road project is headed for trial.

A recent mediation session with the city and Danner Inc., general contractor on a Weir Drive improvement project, failed to produce a settlement, attorneys for the two parties said.

Danner is suing for damages it said it incurred when the city would not extend the road project's deadline. The company plans to argue in a March trial that those were six-figure damages, its attorney said.

The city wanted the case thrown out of Washington County District Court and disputed who was at fault for extra costs Danner may have incurred on the project.

The city Woodbury is not at fault, City Attorney Mark Vierling said.
