No Stay In Suit Vs.Transco

May 15, 2019

HARRISBURG - The state Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear a request for an emergencystay stemming from a multi-million-dollar dispute between Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Co. and a contractor.

The contractor, Alabama-based G.A. West & Co., alleged in a complaint filed in 2016 that Transco, owned by the Williams Co., breached its contract to the tune of nearly $16.7 million by interfering with its internal operations and insisting that friends of project manager Eric Wanner get jobs despite their lack of qualifications.

In a one-page order issued Monday, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied a petition seeking an emergency stay, allowing the case to continue in county court.

Dean said Transco is still awaiting a separate decision from Amesbury on the matter. The case is set for trial June 3.
