March 1, 2012

Shirvinski v. U.S. Coast Guard, 673 F.3d 308 (4th Cir. 2013). Appellant brought claims against our client, a government contractor, alleging that our client's employees illegally conspired with the Coast Guard to have him removed from a U.S. Coast Guard project. In a published opinion affirming summary judgment on all counts, the Fourth Circuit held that “[a]llowing this claim to proceed would only reward artful pleading to the detriment of public-private relationships.”
