A case study in the importance of teamwork in construction defect defense

Readers in the District of Columbia Metropolitan Area undoubtedly know of the Silver Spring Transit Center, a construction project famous for wide-ranging, complicated disputes. The center's owners (Montgomery County and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority) sued the designer, inspector and general contractor for more than $75 million for allegedly defective design and construction.

Construction defect defense: privity

It is not a word many of us use in everyday conversation: privity. But this legal term is important in discussions of contracts because there must be "privity" - a legally recognized interest in the same matter - for one party (a property owner) to sue another (a general contractor).
