We recently advised our members of this adverse case for subcontractors. The ruling stretches further into an area of subjecting subcontractors to strict product liability claims for products they installed. Product liability claims are exempted from SB 800 prelitigation procedures. CALPASC believes those claims should be brought against the manufacturers themselves, and that subcontractors should not be subject to strict liability in these claims. The ruling applies to all forms of construction, commercial, residential, and public projects. You can see a draft of the CALPASC request letter by CLICKING HERE.
