Peter C. John and Brigid E. Kennedy recently obtained an arbitration decision for Siemens Power Generation Corporation of "not guilty" in a construction dispute involving claims of tens of millions of dollars in liquidated damages.  Siemens supplied combustion turbine generators and other equipment to a power plant that was being constructed in New York.  When delays derailed the construction schedule, the general contractor sued the plant's owner for liquidated and other damages.  The owner sought contribution or indemnity from Siemens.  After a hearing that spanned portions of three years, the arbitration panel found that the owner was entitled to no relief from Siemens by way of contribution, indemnity or otherwise.
