No Warranty Without Express Language


Addressing the issue of warranties again within a week and once again reversing the Court of Federal Claims, the Federal Circuit in Precision Pine & Timber, Inc. v. U.S. (Feb. 19, 2010) found no warranty implicit in a contractual clause that allowed the Forest Service to suspend performance due to Endangered Species Act concerns. With respect to the one contract that lacked a suspension of work clause, however, the Forest Service breached because it lacked contractual authority to do so, even though it stopped performance in response to a district court injunction.
