G’day Stephen.

I read with interest your article today on Grocon and the MCG. The story’s been about to break for a while, and I’ve been waiting to see when someone would catch on. My dad runs Steinfort Project Management (SPM), funnily enough the project managers for the MCG. It’s caused him his fair share of headaches over the last few years, but particularly this year. You talk about looming court action, but Grocon has actually taken SPM to court this year, suing for millions of dollars. I’d rather not be mentioned on anything to do with the story, but it may pay to look up court lists in melbourne this year. I don’t recall where it sat at, but I know it certainly had dad thanking his lucky stars he had taken out indemnity insurance years ago. For the record, the judge found in favour of SPM.
