Banquet hall operator sues in business contract dispute

A deal is a deal is the view of many people when it comes to business. However, there are many times when that turns out to not be the case while doing business in California. A broken deal is what one banquet hall operator is claiming to be experiencing, and the company is now entrenched in a business contract dispute.

The dispute centers around a contract between the banquet hall operator and a local town government. The banquet operator, Gralor Inc., had obtained approval for a 25-year deal for use of a piece of land at a local golf course. The parcel of land was being used by the banquet operator for outdoor ceremonies. The deal, which was approved about a decade ago, was apparently made without a competitive bid or waiver.

After realizing this, the town decided to construct a fence around a piece of the land that had been used by the banquet hall operator for the outdoor ceremonies. Apparently, the town officials decided to construct the fence after realizing Gralor had only been given a trial use period of one year. This trial period for using the land was granted in 2007. The local authorities agreed to remove the fence while the lawsuit is pending.

Now, the two parties in the business contract dispute will have to settle their differences in court. Parties in breach of contract lawsuits similar to this one will benefit from having knowledge of contract law and business regulations in California if they wish to prevail in legal disputes. Therefore, thorough preparation of a legal strategy is essential for any company involved in a breach of contract lawsuit.
