Under Construction - June 2012


Letter from the Editor

Welcome to our summer 2012 issue. Hope you are keeping cool!

The first article discusses Colorado’s statute of repose for construction defect claims, and a recent Colorado opinion addressing these issues. The next article discusses an important Arizona construction case regarding attorneys’ fees that will have a significant effect on settlement tactics and settlement offers in future Arizona contract cases.  The third article addresses preserving owner claims against subcontractors and design consultants under Utah law when the owner does not have a direct contract with these parties. Finally, this issue concludes with a timely article about the new California mechanics/ lien statutes that become effective July 1, 2012.

If you have any questions or comments about any of these articles, you can feel free to e-mail them to me.
