Last week, Building reported that a $100m damages claim made against Arup by construction group Mirant had been reduced to $1.4m.

We would like to point out that this report was based on a draft judgment. At a later hearing the judge confirmed that, as Mirant had already recovered the sum of $1.4m from its own insurers, Mirant’s claim should be dismissed altogether and as a result Arup is not liable to pay any damages whatsoever.
