AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– A federal board has begun hearing a lawsuit involving the new Veterans Administration hospital under construction in Aurora.

The new facility is being built at the Anschutz Medical Campus. It’s $500 million over budget and a year behind schedule.

The Civilian Board of Contract Appeals is considering a request from the main contractor, Kiewit Turner, to get out of its contract. Kiewit Turner claims the VA isn’t paying for the work done.

The VA is facing 23 lawsuits involving construction of the new hospital in Aurora.
