In his article, “I Can’t Get No Rectification: The NL Supreme Court Denies Rectification Of Lump Sum Subcontract“, as published at page 8 in Construction Law Letter (PDF), McInnes Cooper lawyer John O’Dea explains how the recent Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court (General Division) decision in Newfoundland Rubber Coating Corp. v. Newfoundland and Labrador (Transportation and Works) illustrates how tough it is to persuade a court to rectify the terms of a written contract with those of an oral agreement – and why it’s not going to get easier.
