Traverse Internet Law runs into many web developer/client disputes. Oftentimes the problems are governed by the terms of the contract in place. However, Virginia has passed Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act (UCITA), which requires web designers and developers to design, build and deliver a project “in accordance with industry standards and practices.”

A Virginia jury recently award $1,138,500 to Blue Line Media, Inc. against its web developer, Redmon Group, for violating this standard of care. At Traverse Internet Law we regularly counsel clients on how to establish appropriate performance standards and measurement benchmarks with an eye towards preventing a project failure.
