Clark suing Miami Beach for $90 million over convention center contract

January 31, 2020

Clark’s allegations include claiming the city refused to pay for changes, didn’t reimburse Clark or its subcontractors for delays related to 2017’s Hurricane Irma, refused to grant appropriate extensions of contract time and unreasonably held retainage.

Specific allegations that Clark has made include:

  • The city hired one of Clark’s subcontractors to perform extra work at the convention center and then made the decision to use part of Clark’s earned fee to pay the subcontractor.
  • The city continually changed what it required for Clark to obtain a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy.
  • The city received enough money from the county and city to reimburse contractors for hurricane costs but kept some of that money instead.
