Matthew McNicholas Weighs In on the Legal Ramifications of Trump’s Tweet to Boeing
On December 6, 2016, President-elect Donald Trump tweeted, “Boeing is building a brand new 747 Air Force One for future presidents, but costs are out of control, more than $4 billion. Cancel order!”
Partner Matthew McNicholas discussed the legal ramifications of these actions in his interview with Ethan Bearman on KGO Radio.
“There’s a legal and binding contract, and government entities get sued all the time for breaching what are known as government contracts,” Matt said. “And when someone with authority says ‘I am going to cancel the contract,’ that is what the law calls an anticipatory breach.”
