Appellate Court Affirms Trial Court's Decision

East Coast Metal Decks, Inc., v. Boran Craig Barber Engel Construction Co., Inc., 38 Fla. L. Weekly D1061a, Case NO. 2D12-1013, issued May 15, 2013: While finding that contractual venue provisions are not binding on the court if there are compelling reasons not to enforce them, the appellate court affirmed the trial court's denial of the subcontractor's motion to transfer a breach of contract action brought by the contractor in Collier County to Brevard County (where one of the projects was located), even where the terms of the surety bonds mandated venue in Brevard County (and denied conditionally awarding prevailing party attorney fees)..
