SETTLEMENT OF LITIGATION
CANTON, MS, DECEMBER 20, 2016 – Rudy Warnock, P.E., Warnock & Associates, LLC, the Board of
Supervisors of Madison County, and County Engineer Dan Gaillet, P.E. have reached a $550,000 settlement in a breach of contract and copyright infringement lawsuit pending in federal district court in Jackson, Mississippi, over invoices that were due from Warnock’s time as County Engineer for Madison County.
In commenting on the settlement agreement, Warnock’s attorney Dorsey Carson said, "During the last decade, Warnock & Associates has engineered and constructed the best roads that Madison County has ever built, and did so with the lowest rates on the market. The settlement allows Mr. Warnock and Warnock & Associates to put behind the expense and distraction associated with this case, and continue providing excellent engineering services for other clients in the Jackson metropolitan area and throughout Mississippi."
Rudy Warnock said, “We consider this a hard-fought case and are pleased to reach a mutually-agreeable resolution.”
In settling the case, neither Madison County nor Warnock admitted any allegations of wrongdoing.
