Under Construction - May 2009
Once again, we bring you another informative installment of the Under Construction newsletter. This quarter's edition kicks off with an article by Gerard "Jerry" Morales and Kathryn Hackett, which discusses what employers should know about the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA). The subsequent article, authored by Ronald Messerly and Kelly Kszywienski, delves into Arizona homeowner's implied warranty rights relative to claims against builders for residential construction defects. Our third article is a submission from Marc Erpenbeck and Benjamin Mitsuda, which examines the economic loss rule related to negligence suits involving constructions projects. Furthermore, this article emphasizes the different court interpretations regarding the economic loss rule in both Arizona and Nevada. Our final article from Leon Mead, II compliments the previous article on the economic loss doctrine. Leon's article specifically details the Nevada Supreme Court's application of the economic loss rule as it relates to design professional negligence, especially in cases that do not involve personal injury or property damage.
