Summary Judgment in Negligent Inspection Case
Cheryl Shaw obtained summary judgment for her client, a local building inspection company, in a case involving allegations of negligence, breach of contract, and breach of fiduciary duty. Plaintiff claimed that the company, who was hired by a national lender to conduct limited inspections during construction of the subject home, negligently performed its services and breached various duties owed to the plaintiff. Cheryl argued, inter alia, that the plaintiff failed to prove its case and that no such duties were owed. The Superior Court of Putman County agreed, entering summary judgment for Cheryl’s client on all six counts and dismissing the plaintiff’s case in its entirety.
