Keever & Associates, Inc. v. Randall

In Keever & Associates, Inc. v. Randall (Wash.Ct.App. 2005) 119 P.3d 926, a Washington appellate court affirmed the trial court's finding that a general contractor "was not entitled to levy" his 10 percent fee in a cost plus contract on costs paid directly by the owner because those costs were not actual costs to the contractor. (Id. at p. 930.) The court did not analyze the language of the contract. It concluded instead that the contractor had not met its burden on appeal of providing reasoned argument and citations to the record and authority. (Id. at pp. 929-930.)
