In this case concerning allegations of negligence in the construction of sewer lines, a group of contractors challenge the sufficiency of the evidence. The evidence supporting the award of excavation costs, which is based on mere surmise, is not legally sufficient because it would not enable reasonable and fair-minded people to find that the cost was reasonable. The past damages award is reversed and rendered. The remainder of the judgment as to the contractors is affirmed. Corpus Christi Court of Appeals, No. 13-06-00038-CV, 05-30-2013.
