Class A (General Engineering) licensed subcontractor deemed duly licensed even though the contract required C-12 license (Earthwork and Paving)

Any contractor seeking to assert a claim for payment in a lawsuit or arbitration must show that it was "duly licensed" to perform its work. In Pacific Caisson & Shoring Inc. v. Bernards Brothers, Inc., 198 Cal.App. 681 (2011) (published August 19, 2011) the question was whether a subcontractor was "duly licensed" when it held only a Class A license (General Engineering) even though the contract documents required a C-12 license (Earthwork and Paving).
