Superior Court Reaffirms Oral Change Orders Are Effective Despite Contractual Provisions Requiring Written Approval

Owen-J-Mcgrann-profile.jpgIn C.E. Pontz Sons, Inc. v. Purcell Constr. Co., 2015 Pa. Super. Unpub. LEXIS 3192 (Pa. Super 2015), the Pennsylvania Superior Court addressed the often disputed question regarding whether oral modifications to construction contracts have effect despite a contractual provision requiring written amendments to the contract. (A copy of this case is attached HERE) Holding with the prevailing case law, the Court found that oral modifications are enforceable for contracts that are not for the sale of goods.
