before the Utah Supreme Court on the continued vitality of the Economic Loss Doctrine (which regular readers know that I “love to hate”), will be heard on Tuesday, December 2, at 9 a.m.
Arguments will be at the Utah Supreme Court, 450 South Main, 5th Floor, Salt Lake City, Utah.
The appeal arises from a dispute between the Davencourt at Pilgrim’s Landing Townhome Owners Association and the entities involved in the development of the project. The lawsuit involves allegations of serious construction defects; the development entities successfully argued in the trial court that the economic loss doctrine precluded most of the plaintiff’s claims.
I won’t get to argue to the court, but I’ll be in the audience cheering the plaintiffs on. I was allowed to file an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief on behalf of the Community Associations Institute. A copy of my brief is available here.
I hope to see you there. And remember, although the public is allowed, literal cheering from the courtroom is strongly discouraged.
