Please accept our sincere thanks for your generous donations to the Subcontractor Legal Defense Fund at SUBExcel 2020 in March. We were pleased to hit the $20k raised mark for the Fund throughout the conference, and we obviously could not have done this without you!
As you may have seen in our ASA updates, we welcomed a
big win on a pay when paid case in California, so your funds are reaping rewards.
SLDF is a unique entity that draws cases from across the country and sets important precedent for the entire industry. Your contribution enables us to keep that work going. You can review historic and new cases along with other information on the Fund on our website at www.sldf.net.

Help Defend Our Future by Supporting the Subcontractors Legal Defense Fund
ASA underwrites the legal costs of filng "friend-of-the-court" briefs to inform the Court regarding the broader impact of relevant cases throughout the country. We have won dozens of these cases since 1997, vindicating subcontractor rights today and into the future!
Each year, courts across the country hand down hundreds of decisions on federal and state laws, as well as court-made or "case"law, that apply to subcontractors' businesses. Many of the decisions impacting subcontractors interpret the contract provisions of subcontract agreements—provisions like pay-if-paid, hold harmless, duty-to-defend, and no-damages-for-delay. Some of these decisions are precedent-setting and carry significance for subcontractors across state lines.
ASA's Subcontractors Legal Defense Fund supports ASA's critical legal activities in precedent-setting cases to protect the interests of all subcontractors. ASA taps the SLDF to fund amicus curiae, or friend-of-the-court," briefs in appellate-level cases that would have a significant impact on subcontractor rights.
