Here's a thought: what did their agreement SAY would happen in the event that the hotel didn't open by Nov 2005?

If it didn't address that possibility, then EPA should be firing its attorneys. A good attorney makes his/her money by thinking up ALL the contingencies, the possible outcomes and making sure they are addressed in contracts. Any reasonable layperson can think up all the expected possibilities and get them addressed, that's no big feat.

Per the norm, it sounds like the City of EPA staffers didn't do their job. Too bad, the Westin corporate folks will stomp them.
