SAYING that USA Fanter Corporation has satisfied lien requirements, District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona on Monday said the company “shall have a mechanic’s lien to attach upon the improvements of the Imperial Pacific Resort hotel-casino complex and the real property interest of IPI in Garapan…for the lien amount of” $2.089 million.


The judge said USA Fanter established probable cause that IPI owes the plaintiff $2.089 million which was the price agreed to be paid for the construction work performed by USA Fanter.
USA Fanter, a construction contractor, provided materials and labor under a landscaping contract at the IPI hotel-casino complex. The contract included the construction of retaining walls, stairways, sidewalks as well as excavation and backfilling.
Represented by attorney Colin Thompson, USA Fanter stated in its lawsuit that it stopped work on the project because IPI refused to pay the amount it owed the plaintiff for work completed under the construction contract.
IPI, represented by attorney Joseph Horey, stated that USA Fanter failed to mediate the claims and that its lawsuit should be dismissed.
Judge Manglona scheduled the bench trial for June 24, 2020 at 9 a.m.
According to an online legal encyclopedia, “mechanic’s liens are legal documents that essentially reserve the rights of the filer to seek unpaid compensation. They are usually filed by contractors, subcontractors, or suppliers that never received payment for work that they performed or materials that they provided on the property.”
