As they do every year, Virginia Lawyers Weekly produces their editors choices of the important opinions of the year. 2012 was no different.
Among these opinions are many that affect the construction industry in Virginia. The opinions that made the cut ranged in topic from mechanic’s liens to the source of duty rule. I particularly commend the “Contracts” section of the list for those cases that most impact the contractors and subcontractors of Virginia.
Several of these have been discussed here at Construction Law Musings and all are well summarized at VLW so I will not be getting into them with specificity here. Suffice it to say that as a Virginia construction lawyer, I always find new and interesting wrinkles to the construction tapestry in Virginia in the pages of Lawyers Weekly and thank the editors for their consistent highlighting of interesting cases in my field of practice.
Do you think that there are interesting cases that should have been listed? If so, please comment below and let me know of them.
As always, I welcome your comments below. Please subscribe to keep up with this and other Construction Law Musings.
