Contract – Construction Project – Subcontract – Time for Payment – Reasonable Time – Three Years (access required)

RJM Plumbing, Inc. v. Superior Construction Corp. When the parties’ contract does not set a time for payment, the issue of what is a reasonable time for payment is a mixed question of law and fact. Without extenuating circumstances or even an explanation by the defendant-general contractor, it would be unreasonable as a matter of law to expect the plaintiff-subcontractor to wait three years to be paid for its work. The subcontractor’s motion for partial summary judgment against the general contractor is granted.
