New Jersey contract dispute is really a turf war

Turf Industry Inc., doing business as UBU Sports hired Taylor Turf Installation Inc. to lay the artificial playing surface for the venue of this year's Super Bowl -- MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. Taylor Turf installed the surface but has yet to be paid the remaining monies owed on its contract. The company has filed suit against Turf Industry and New Meadowlands Stadium Co. LLC (the owner of MetLife Stadium).

Taylor Turf's president says the company went the extra mile to do the job right and quickly, considering the field would be seen around the globe on Feb. 2. The company received $125,000 for the project, but it claims that additional payments that were owed never came. Taylor Turf claims it was told to continue working and that payment was on its way. The company further alleges that paperwork requirements were a "stall tactic."

In an email response to inquiries about the suit, New Meadowlands says it was not involved in hiring or contracting with Taylor Turf. Further, the stadium owner is urging Turf Industry to settle the matter expeditiously. No response from Turf Industry was forthcoming at this time.

Taylor Turf is seeking damages in excess of $292,000 that it claims it is owed under the contract. If the parties are not able to come to an amicable resolution, the parties could go head-to-head in a New Jersey court. At that point, Taylor Turf would need to prove its breach of contract claims by a preponderance of the evidence and to the satisfaction of the court. If and when that occurs, the court would proceed to determine the financial losses sustained as a result of the breached contract. In the interim, the parties will likely negotiate in an attempt to reach a satisfactory settlement directly,
