Arizona’s Economic Loss Rule – Arizona Attorney Magazine

Baird, Williams and Greer Partner, Craig LaChance, has published an article in the Arizona Attorney Magazine on the Arizona Supreme Court’s recent economic loss rule decision in Flagstaff Affordable Housing v. Desing Alliance. In that case, the Court held that the economic loss rule—which bars tort claims and limits a plaintiff to contract remedies when the only loss suffered is economic—precludes negligence claims in construction defect cases. In a thoughtful analysis of the Flagstaff decision, Craig critiques the court’s reasoning, contending the court has tacitly and improperly rooted the decision in 19th century legal assumptions.
