In September, we told you about a contract dispute in Napa, California, over the awarding of a contract to build a new $1.44 million skate park. The city decided to hold off on awarding the contract to California Skateparks because of legal battles the company was dealing with. There were allegations that the company had asked competitors to bid high on a skate park project in Los Angeles so that they could bid low enough to get the contract awarded to them. This resulted in a lawsuit filed against California Skateparks, which was eventually settled for $65,000.
The litigation history involving California Skateparks was not disclosed in the Napa application for the new skate park, and the city doesn't research ongoing or previous litigation before awarding a contract.
