Construction Defect Claims

Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA)

Mike spoke to CFMA on February 19, discussing defect claims as well as the Ohio Supreme Court’s Ohio Northern Decision. Mike explained the details of the Ohio Northern case, the original project, and the issue presented to the court of whether a contractor’s CGL policy provides coverage for defective workmanship by a subcontractor. A walkthrough of this multifaceted case study provided a fascinating and detailed look at impactful policy questions, including those still under consideration, such as statutes of repose and limitations.
