DeCarlo and Doll, Inc., v. Dilozir
In DeCarlo and Doll, Inc., v. Dilozir, 45 Conn. App. 633, 698 A.2d 318 (Conn. 1997), an engineering firm was hired to help prepare a site plan for a developer. The agreement included a fee schedule but was subsequently amended by a letter agreement.
The letter agreement increased the budget for part of the work and provided that it was to be paid in full with all outstanding payments at the time of financing. When the developer failed to obtain financing and refused to pay the balance due pursuant to the contract, the firm sued.
The court held the letter agreement did not amend the fee schedule in the original contract but only set the date by which the increased budget amount was to be paid.
