Wire

By jflanej ·
I was under contract to remove wall mounted data racks from multi tenant buildings in Massachusetts. In order to remove one rack that was used by the company I was under contract for some wires were cut that were owned by an other company. These wires had been placed into the top and passed through the bottom of the rack that was to be removed. The only way to remove the rack was to cut the wires. The wires were two Cat5E wires. The other company expects me to pay for the damage caused by the cut wires however I have said that they had no right to install their wire through our equipment. WHO IS RIGHT???

If their is no written agreement for them to connect to your equipment and the company had this done illegally,then you had the right to cut the wires,without prior knowledge that they were part of your equipment.
Yes,you are right that they had noright to install the wire without permission,so the question is did they have permission to do it ,if so then you will be held responsible.

If I were in your shoes I sure would not be looking for an answer here. This is a legal question best answered by someone qualified in business law, not some unknown person on a web site. Call some kind of state or local business organization for a referal to a more qualified group of people.

Yes, get legal advice.

Be sure to review your contract - if your customer did not inform you of the situation, then they are culpable. They implicitly assured you that this was their equipment.

Find out if your customer had an agreement with the other company to share the space. That may have bearing.

Present all of this to your lawyer.
