    Construction Defect Not a RICO Case, Says Court

    August 04, 2011 —

    The US District Court of North Carolina has rejected an attempt by a homeowner to restart her construction defect claim by turning it into a RICO lawsuit. Linda Sharp, the plaintiff in the case of Sharp v. Town of Kitty Hawk, attempted to amend a claim under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and argued that her case belonged in the federal courts.

    Ms. Sharp sued in November, 2010 claiming construction defects. She sued in federal court, although the court noted that as she and most of the defendants are citizens of North Carolina, the state court would have been the appropriate jurisdiction. Further, the court noted that one federal claim Sharp made was dismissed with prejudice, leaving only the state law claims. These the court dismissed without prejudice, declining to exercise jurisdiction over North Carolina law.

    After the dismissal, Ms. Sharp attempted to amend her complaint after the deadline. To do so, according to the court, she would be required to obtain consent from defendants or leave of the court. She did neither.

    In his opinion, Judge W. Earl Britt rejected her motion for leave to amend. He also granted the defendants’ motion to dismiss. The clerk was directed to close the case.

    Insurance Client Alert: Mere Mailing of Policy and Renewals Into California is Not Sufficient Basis for Jurisdiction Over Bad Faith Lawsuit

    January 28, 2015 —
    In Greenwell v. Auto-Owners Ins. Co. (No. C074546, filed 1/27/15), a California appeals court held that the use of a mailing address to send policies and renewals into California did not support jurisdiction for a California resident's bad faith lawsuit against a Michigan insurer over property coverage for a fire loss to a building in Arkansas. In Greenwell, the insured was a California resident engaged in real estate investment. He purchased an apartment building in Little Rock, Arkansas. Using the services of an insurance broker in Little Rock, he purchased a package of general liability and commercial property insurance for the building from Auto-Owners Insurance Company, a Michigan insurer not licensed in California. The policy listed the insured's business address in California, the policy was mailed there, and renewed three times via the insured's California address. Reprinted courtesy of Valerie A.

    How Long is Your Construction Warranty?

    February 26, 2015 —
    The Nebraska Court of Appeals threw a wrench into the calculation of your warranty earlier this year in Adams v. Manchester Park, LLC and Southfork Homes, Inc. In that case, the court found that the statute of limitations for a warranty claim started running after the homebuilder’s warranty expired. So, the four year breach of warranty statute of limitations did not begin until after the one year homebuilder warranty expired. In this case, the homeowner purchased a home from Southfork in September, 2007. The purchase agreement provided for a one-year New Home Limited Warranty which covered material defects in workmanship and materials. The homeowner noticed cracks in the drywall and problems with windows within 6 months of the purchase. The builder told the homeowner to keep track of all the problems and they would be fixed at the yearend walk through. Read the court decision

    Apartment Construction Increasing in Colorado while Condo Construction Remains Slow

    March 12, 2014 —
    Dennis Huspeni writing for the Denver Business Journal reported that Colorado is having a surge of new apartment construction, but very little condominium building. According to Huspeni, “some business leaders and government officials worry that Colorado’s construction defect laws” are the reason for the lack of condominium construction. Huspeni in the Denver Business Journal alleged that there is a large “liability risk for builders, developers and subcontractors” because current state laws “make it easier for homeowners’ associations to file large, class-action lawsuits against builders for construction problems associated with new condominiums.” Huspeni spoke with John Batug, senior vice president and regional manager of Wells Fargo’s community banking real estate group, who stated that condo development usually occurs at the same rate as apartment development. Batug alleged that construction defect litigation “seems to have pushed that component of the market out.” A bill that is supposed to “jump-start” the “condominium construction sector will be introduced this session, but its sponsor said he remains unsure what types of legal reform will be a part of it,” reported Ed Sealover in the Denver Business Journal. Lakewood Mayor Bob Murphy told Sealover that “city and business leaders would like to see two particular changes in the law: 1.They want to require a super-majority of condo owners to have to agree to legal action before any lawsuit is filed — instead of just needing two of them to move forward. 2.They want a requirement to attempt some sort of alternative dispute resolution before a suit can be filed.” However, not everyone is in favor of the proposed suggestions. Jonathan Harris, vice president of The Point Homeowners Association, told Sealover that the “bill that the Metro Mayors Caucus wants ignores the fact that arbitration can be an expensive process for property owners.” Read the full story, Huspeni Article...

    Rio Olympics Work Was a Mess and Then Something Curious Happened

    April 06, 2016 —
    In early 2014, a senior Olympic Committee official returned from a trip to Rio de Janeiro and declared Brazil’s preparations for the Summer Games to be the worst he’d ever seen. In the two years since, a crippling recession set in, dozens of construction executives were ensnared in a nationwide corruption scandal and the president has been pushed to the brink of impeachment. And the preparations? They’re basically fine now, actually. In what is emerging as a rare bright spot in a country buffeted by crisis on all sides, the organizing committee is saying that more than 95 percent of the venues are complete some four months ahead of the opening ceremony and, what’s more, data shows spending has largely remained under control.

    Dispute between City and Construction Company Over Unsightly Arches

    April 01, 2014 —
    The city of Swartz Creek, Michigan alleged that Slagter Construction’s work on “Texas-style arches along a new bridge” was “terrible” and doesn’t “match up to what the company promised when it took the job to build the $20,000 walkways that include the arches,” reported M Live. However, Slagter Construction “maintains its repairs were adequate and claims in a letter to the state that the issue shouldn't resolved by local officials who have ‘no formal training or education on these matters.’” According to M Live, “[t]he two sides are set to meet on May 5 with MDOT officials on May 5 in Bay City for arbitration.” Read the court decision

    Nevada Supreme Court Rejects Class Action Status, Reducing Homes from 1000 to 71

    July 02, 2014 —
    The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the “Nevada Supreme Court has rejected a request for class action status for claims of damaged stucco from faulty construction by Del Webb Communities involving nearly 1,000 Sun City Summerlin residents,” however, “the court upheld the award of damages to 71 homeowners following a jury trial in Clark County District Court in 2008.” The case began in 2003, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal referred to it as “one of the largest construction-defect cases in Nevada history.” But District Judge Allan Earl denied class action lawsuit in 2006. “Attorneys were seeking $70 million for the homeowners.” In 2008, another court “determined that only 71 homeowners merited compensation totaling $4 million for the stucco issues.” According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, “[h]omeowners alleged that Del Webb failed to install metal screeds that would protect homes from water damage, and as a result, the homes suffered from cracked stucco, mold and weakened walls.” Read the court decision
