In Maxwell v. Atl. Richfield Co., 476 P.3d 645 (Wash. Ct. App. 2020), Division 2 of the Washington Court of Appeals recently applied Washington’s construction six-year statute of repose to stale personal injury claims arising in the construction context.

A summary analysis of the case can be found in an article written by POG attorneys Bill Cornell and Candace Chuck.
