Material supplier filed action for foreclosure of its mechanics lien against several companies, including two companies which later sought to enforce their secondary subcontractors' liens under Mechanics Lien Act. Court improperly granted summary judgment in favor of those two companies without limiting their recovery to only their pro rata shares of the amount of unpaid contract funds remaining at time they served their notices of lien. (KNECHT and HARRIS, concurring.)
