Double AA Builders, Ltd. v. Grand State Const. LLC

Court of Appeals of Arizona
114 P.3d 835 (2005)


Facts

Grand State Construction LLC (Grand State) (defendant) faxed a bid to Double AA Builders, Ltd. (Double AA) (plaintiff) to act as a subcontractor on a project on which Double AA was bidding to be the general contractor. Grand State’s bid described the scope of the work to be done, set Grand State’s price, provided for payment every 30 days, and stated that the quoted price would be good for 30 days. Double AA submitted its general contractor bid to the owner and was awarded the contract. Double AA then sent a subcontract to Grand State within 30 days of receiving its subcontractor bid. Grand State refused to sign the contract or perform. Double AA sued based on promissory estoppel. The superior court awarded Double AA the difference between Grand State’s bid and the replacement bid, but denied Double AA’s request for attorney’s fees under § 12-341.01(A) of the Arizona statutes. Grand State appealed the award of damages, and Double AA appealed the denial of attorney’s fees.
