Supreme Court ruling goes against large homebuilders

October 2008
Las Vegas Business Press (10712186);10/13/2008, Vol. 25 Issue 41, p18
The article considers the decision of the Nevada Supreme Court to deny the writ of builder Del Webb and subcontractor Anse requesting the removal of hundred of Sun City Summerlin homeowners. The state court rejected arguments that the homeowners should not be included in the lawsuit because their homes would not fit into the legal definition of new residences. Supporters claim that the ruling in the construction defect case reaffirms the rights of buyers of resale homes to sue for construction defects that were not noticed by the original owners.
