The law firm of Stark & Stark, P.C. has joined forces with Homeowners Against Deficient Dwellings (HADD) to file an amicus curiae (friend of the court) brief urging the New Jersey Supreme Court to allow homeowners to pursue tort remedies against manufacturers of defective building components. The case, Dean v. Barrett Homes, Inc., will mark the first time the New Jersey Supreme Court has directly addresses whether and to what extent the so-called economic loss rule, originating in the law of product liability, applies to residential construction. Stark & Stark Construction Litigation attorney, John Randy Sawyer, is representing HADD pro bono as amicus curiae in the appeal. You can read more about the case, and access a PDF copy of the brief, online at Stark & Starks New Jersey Law Blog.
