RQ Client Prevails on Summary Judgment

b2ap3_thumbnail_Image_414.jpg Casey Quillen and Katherine Brim successfully argued the statute of repose barred all claims brought by Lennar builders against their client, a subcontractor on a Northern Colorado residential project. The client's work was completed in 2005. Notwithstanding the Colorado Construction Defect Action Reform Act's (CDARA) requires that suit generally be instituted no later than six years after substantial completion of the improvement. Suit was not filed until 2012. RQ sought summary judgment, arguing the most equitable application of the statute of repose required claims be brought no later than six years after the completion of each building the client worked on - not within six years of the completion of the entire project. The Court agreed, dismissing all claims asserted against RQ's client.
