Massachusetts Court Clarifies Statute of Repose Trigger for Multi-Phase Construction Projects
In D’Allesandro v. Lennar Hingham Holdings, LLC, C.A. No. 17-cv-12567-IT, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 185874, the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts heard a case against a general contractor and its related entities involved in the construction of a multi-phase project. The court held that in this context, completion of the “improvement” triggering the six-year statute of repose for the plaintiffs’ negligence and breach of implied warranty claims was the whole project, rather than each individual phase.
