Armstrong v. Bangor Mill Supply Corp.
Maine Supreme Judicial Court
145 A. 741 (1929)
In 1927, Armstrong (plaintiff) sent a broken crankshaft for repair to Bangor Mill Supply Corp. (Bangor Mill) (defendant). The crankshaft had been used in the operation of Armstrong’s lath mill. Bangor Mill failed to properly repair the crankshaft, causing Armstrong to close his mill for six days. This resulted in maintenance expenses and a loss of earnings. Armstrong brought suit against Bangor Mill for damages resulting from the faulty repair of the crankshaft. The jury found that Bangor Mill failed to repair the crankshaft in a workmanlike manner and awarded damages for fixed operating charges during the shutdown and for lost profits.
