Decided February 21, 1927

273 U.S. 324


A claim for profits anticipated from the performance of a contract with the government cannot be based on delays caused by changes made by the government when, under the contract itself, the remedy for such delay was to be an extension of time to the contractor, and when the contract was terminated by a supplemental agreement expressly releasing all claims for such profits. P. 273 U. S. 325.

60 Ct.Cls. 201 affirmed.

Appeal from a judgment of the Court of Claims disallowing in part a claim under a contract to make Very pistols for the government.
