Tutor-Saliba, accused of poor construction work on LAX runway, has been sued before

Thursday’s big news around LAX was that the airport is suing the construction firm that built a new 13,000 foot runway completed in 2007. The suit filed in California state court accuses Tutor-Saliba, and others, of using shoddy construction techniques on Runway 25L.

“As a result of the defendants’ negligent construction,” the suit states, “the runway is deteriorating in an accelerated fashion and will ultimately interfere with ongoing runway operations.”

An astute reader emailed me this morning with some links about other lawsuits Tutor Saliba has been involved in during the past decade. (A company spokesman has not called me back yet.)
