STATON, J. R.R. Donnelley & Sons, Co. and Protection Mutual Insurance Company[Footnote 1] (Donnelley) filed an action seeking damages in the amount of $119,053.79 against contractor Henry-Williams, Inc. Donnelley alleged that the contractor's negligence, in failing to adequately protect its property during a construction project, proximately caused the damages suffered when one of the sprinkler heads on the sprinkler system in an adjoining building froze and burst. Donnelley also alleged that Henry-Williams had breached its contract by failing to adequately protect its inventory and work in progress.[Footnote 2] The court granted a summary judgment for Henry-Williams and concluded that Donnelley was not entitled to recover upon either the negligence or the contract theory.
