JURY DECIDES AGAINST BADGER, BADGER INTENDS TO APPEAL
Calgary, Alberta – Badger Daylighting Ltd. announces that a jury in the District Court of Creek County, Oklahoma, Bristow Division, has entered a verdict of approximately USD $13.7 million in favor of a former franchisee and his franchise against a subsidiary of Badger for breach of contract and other causes of action. Badger strongly disagrees with the result and intends to appeal.
Badger is North America’s largest provider of non-destructive excavating services. Badger traditionally works for contractors and facility owners in the utility and petroleum industries. Our key technology is the Badger Hydrovac, which is used primarily for safe digging in congested grounds and challenging conditions. The Badger Hydrovac uses a pressurized water stream to liquefy the soil cover, which is then removed with a powerful vacuum system and deposited into a storage tank. Badger manufactures its truck-mounted hydrovac units.
