Sandroni v. Waukesha County Board of Supervisors

In Sandroni v. Waukesha County Board of Supervisors, 173 Wis. 2d 183, 496 N.W.2d 164 (Ct. App. 1992), a subcontractor brought an action against a general contractor for declaratory and injunctive relief to compel the general contractor to use its services on the basis of acceptance of a bid that had included its bid as a subcontractor. The Court held that the subcontractor had no standing to make a contract claim. See id. at 185. Sandroni reasons that a subcontractor should be bound by its bid because of the general contractor's reasonable reliance on the bid in submitting its own general bid for the prime contract. See id.
