If you are wondering why you haven't read or heard about more litigation related to green projects, we have some ideas about why. If you think you can drop your guard and forget about the risks involved, please don't. The first reason we haven't seen more sustainable project disputes and litigation is that the world-
wide economic disruption has slowed green development. Today, most green projects involve higher costs for which financing is more difficult to obtain or that owners may be unwilling or unable to pay. On federal projects, for instance, a cost-benefit analysis must be completed prior to pursuing green techniques for the Dept. of Defense.
