Original Program: When the Walls Come Tumblin' Down...:Preparing for and Confronting Construction Defect Litigation in North Carolina (2018 Construction Law Section Annual Meeting), September 28-29, 2018
Less common knowledge and experience is the subtlety of the interplay between the construction process and the review process, and how it might play into or affect the litigation or arbitration of a construction defect case.
This session attempts to flesh out that process, beginning with a short review of the relevant caselaw before proceeding to a few individual case studies dealing in a very specific way with this issue.
Session topics include:
- Discussion of the interplay between code violations and liability
- How to approach code review and obtain governmental approval
- How blaming a governmental inspector does not constitute a defense
- How to use expert witnesses to benefit your case
