Welcome to the summer edition of our Under Construction newsletter. We hope that you are having a wonderful summer and are looking forward to the upcoming fall weather and colors.
In this newsletter, we explore a variety of topics and discuss issues related to current construction trends and legal news that may be relevant to you and your business.
We offer timely information regarding the prohibition of burning limits or consumable liability insurance policies in Nevada, a water update for Arizona contractors and developers, the recent Utah Court of Appeals opinion concerning the strict enforcement of contract integration clauses, and an update on the most recent U.S. Supreme Court personal jurisdiction decision in Mallory v. Norfolk Southern Railway Company. This edition also addresses how Colorado’s statute of limitation defense may not apply in arbitrations, as well as construction industry impacts from recent Colorado legislation to improve wildfire resiliency within the state, and an article applicable in all of our states - traits that distinguish a neutral construction mediator.
We hope you will find these articles informative and enlightening. Please let us know if we can address a specific construction issue in a future newsletter. We hope the rest of the summer is profitable, busy, and safe for you, your company, and your family!
