Core Communications, Inc. v. Verizon Maryland LLC, 12-2572

In an action in which plaintiff alleged that defendant breached their interconnection agreement by delaying the interconnection, summary judgment to defendant with respect to plaintiff's tort claims, and an award of nominal damages of only one dollar to plaintiff on its related claim for breach of contract, are: 1) there was no abuse in the district court's ruling allowing defendant to invoke the Exculpatory Clause, or in enforcing the Clause as a bar to plaintiff's recovery of consequential damages; 2) summary judgment awards to defendant on plaintiff's concealment and unfair competition tort claims were not erroneously made; 3) notwithstanding the Exculpatory Clause, the court did not err in ruling that plaintiff was entitled to only nominal damages on its breach of contract claim.
