A lawsuit filed by the River Eagle group against Shive-Hattery has been dismissed because the two parties have reached a settlement.
River Eagle — comprised of Mike VanDeHeede, Matt Stern, Dan Murphy and state Sen. Mike Jacobs, D-East Moline, — is trying to develop 132 acres of the former Case-New Holland site, which it bought for about $1.5 million. The project, called Fountainhead of the Quad Cities, would be a mixed business and residential development.
In February 2012 the group hired Shive-Hattery to help with the project. The group later alleged Shive-Hattery broke a contract by not turning over engineering and architectural work it initially did for the project. Shive-Hattery also tried to hamper the progress of the development, according to the suit filed Dec. 31 in Rock Island County Circuit Court.
Court records state the two sides have reached a settlement and, on Jan. 23, River Eagle asked to have its case dismissed. The records did not provide details of the settlement. Myron Scheibe, office director and vice president of Shive-Hattery's Moline branch, declined to provide details of the settlement. River Eagle representatives also declined comment or could not be reached for comment.
River Eagle had sought to have Shive-Hattery turn over all the work that River Eagle alleged it was owed, as well as unspecified awards for an alleged breach of contract, tortious conduct and attorney's fees.
