    Taking Direct Action Against Design NegligenceSpotlight On Section 522 Of The Restatement (Second) Of Torts (2012) When suing for economic damages thanks to a disappointing project outcome, you must sue someone you have a contract with.

However, by relying on Section 522 of the Restatement (Second) of Torts, some states have opened up a loophole. This special report illustrates the varied applications of the exception to the economic loss doctrine. The exception can be narrow, but knowing your options can make a big difference to your chances at cash recovery.

  • The Differing Site Conditions Clause: Its Range And Restrictions (2013; 60 pages) (BKCCLSFSTR)

As a result, site condition claims often end up in litigation, leaving courts to decide which contract provision rules. Courts have ruled both ways on the enforceability of site data disclaimers. But you don't have to be left guessing as to your own chances.
