Wes Davis and Greg Ziegler win summary judgment for architect

Greg Ziegler and Wes Davis obtained summary judgment for a local architectural firm in a dangerous multi-family residential development mold case in Bexar County (San Antonio) Texas. The summary judgment motion, based on the economic loss rule and the Texas Supreme Court opinion LAN/STV v. Eby, was filed contemporaneously with our client’s original answer and granted within 90 days of our appearance, saving Macdonald Devin’s client hundreds of thousands of dollars in defense costs. The trial judge agreed that general contractors cannot join design professionals in construction defect cases arising out of design-bid-build projects
