In this matter, the City of Laredo unilaterally terminated the general contractor from a highway construction project bonded by a major surety, exposing the surety to significant liability under its performance bond.  The firm filed a declaratory judgment action against the City of Laredo on behalf of the surety, seeking exoneration from all liability based on the City of Laredo‚Äôs breach of the bond.  The firm successfully negotiated a settlement with the City of Laredo which resulted in the filing of a consent judgment declaring that the surety's obligations under the bond were discharged and that any claims the City of Laredo may have against the bond were null and void.
