Williams v. Athletic Field: Washington's Construction Gem Goes to State Supreme Court


Whether you have heard about Williams v. Athletic Field, or not, you will be enticed by the Supreme Court's review of this dandy. Williams was a lawsuit to evaluate the sufficiency of a construction lien filed in Washington.

The Court of Appeals, Division II, determined that the lien failed to comply with form requirements set forth in the State's Revised Code. Unfortunately, the lien was executed similarly to the bulk of other liens out there floating around. So, many took notice.

When another Court of Appeals Division took a look and hinted at a different result, the Supreme Court decided to take a look. Perhaps now, mayhem might be put to rest.
