The renovations of the Hampton Inn & Suites (owned by Weybosset Hotel, LLC) was to be done by Stonestreet Construction LLC.  There were several guarantee clauses in the contract and eventually a dispute arose among the parties involved, including one of the subcontractors.  Most of the dispute surrounded monies owed, mostly as a result of change orders and delays.  The GC and said subcontractor filed mechanics liens in state Superior Court and an action in Federal Court under supplemental jurisdiction.  While the federal action was pending, the mechanics liens matter was adjudicated in the state court.  Weybosset Hotel LLC filed several motions in Federal Court, among which was the Court’s continued supplemental jurisdiction.  The Court of Appeals affirmed the District Court’s findings that it continued to have jurisdiction and upheld the award in favor of Stonestreet Construction LLC.  See full opinion at: Allstate Interiors & Exteriors, Inv. v. Stonestreet Construction, LLC v. Weybosset Hotel, LLC.
