As we near the end of another year, we begin to look forward to the next legislative session, which will begin on January 13, 2010. Having been involved in construction defect litigation for close to two decades, HHMR attorneys are often asked to assist the legislative efforts of the Colorado Association of Home Builders, and 2010 will be no different.
During 2010, David M. McLain will serve as a voting member of the CAHB Governmental Affairs Committee and as a member of it Construction Defect Task Force. It is sure to be an interesting year. We are waiting to see whether the plaintiffs’ bar will be back with proposed legislation to overturn the Goodyear decision, as they tried last year with the Homeowner Protection Act of 2009, or whether they will attempt to legislatively overturn the General Security case and its progeny, such as the recent Greystone decision.
If you have any questions about the upcoming legislative session, please contact David M. McLain at (303) 987-9870 or email@example.com.
