Semoh Group of Companies Sues Winrock International and USAID for Breach of Contract

The Semoh Group of Companies has filed a lawsuit against Winrock International and USAID at the Commercial Court in Monrovia for breach of contract. In its lawsuit, Semoh Group is seeking USD 4,500,000 in general damages "for psychological effect and disparagement" and an additional USD 379,043.37 in specific damages in "total contract price." In the lawsuit, Semoh Group stated that it entered into a contractual agreement with the respondent on May 1, 2014 for the construction of a biomass electricity pilot project. They further indicated that the initial contract was valued at USD 296,535.56 on July 18, 2014, noting that seven modifications to the original contract were initiated and effected with an additional cost of USD 82,507.80, thus increasing the contract value to USD 379,043.37. The Plaintiff further contended that the duration of the initial contract was from May 1, 2014 to September 30, 2014, but that due to the Ebola crisis in Liberia, including quarantines and closure of borders on September 29, 2014, the said contract was extended to October 14, 2014. The plaintiff said that defendants breached the contractual agreement by advertising the same contract for the construction of the Kwendin Biomass Project in violation of the contractual agreement between both parties. The Associate Judge of the Commercial Court, Judge Chan-Chan A. Paegar, had a pre-trial conference with both parties during which he informed them that they should file their memorandum statement within 48 hours as provided for under the civil procedure law.
