Fallout from the failed data center construction project in Newark, Delaware, continues to get nastier and nastier.
First, the University of Delaware broke its lease agreement with the developer (the development was going to be on a university-owned property), dooming it to fail. What followed were lawsuits against The Data Centers LLC (the developer)filed by companies it had hired to do some initial work on the project. Then came a lawsuit by one of the partners in TDC against another.
Now, TDC is suing the university, claiming its leadership has sabotaged the $1.3 billion project, which would include a 280-megawatt cogeneration plant fueled by natural gas. The company filed the suit in Delaware Superior Court Wednesday.
