In Maryland Supreme Court Case, NSPE Backs PEs

Wednesday, July 6, 2016

NSPE has filed a brief before the Maryland Supreme Court to protect professional engineers from certain claims by contractors. The brief supports the economic loss doctrine. The application of the doctrine protects PEs from alleged tort claims by contractors for purely economic damages, such as lost profits and delay damages, when there is no contract between the PE and the contractor. The outcome of the case could influence other court decisions at the federal and state levels.
