Fourth Circuit Affirms Award By Interstate Compact
In Washington-Dulles Transp., Ltd. v. Metro. Wash. Airports Auth. (Jan. 30, 2004), the Fourth Circuit issued the first decision by an appeals court addressing the merits of a challenge to the award of a contract by the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (represented by C&M). The court upheld the Authority’s award because it was "grounded in a methodical and public review of the proposals," had "a rational basis," and was not "arbitrary or irrational."
