Garbage truck company, Chicago, say each breached their contract

Back in February, the city of Chicago sued Motiv Power Systems, the California-based manufacturer of an electric trash truck, for $1.3 million in the Cook County Circuit Court system. They did so to try to recoup the cost of a largely inoperative truck that they'd purchased from them in 2014. Just last month, the manufacturer filed their own suit alleging that the city breached its contract with them.

Remedies that are often ordered in breach of contract cases

Most any Chicago company will have their customer sign a contract before agreeing to perform any services for them. They outline what they've been contracted to do and outline what happens if outside factors such as time delays or financial issues make it impossible for either party to uphold their responsibilities.
