DRI Publishes Article by Edward Slaughter and Lindsey Mears
Edward Slaughter, Partner-in-Charge of the Dallas office, and Lindsey Mears, an Associate in the Dallas office, were published in the June 2013 edition of the Defense Research Institute ("DRI"): For the Defense magazine. The article is entitled, "Rest Easy: Latent Disease and the Construction Statute of Repose." The article is a national survey of the application of construction statutes of repose and their applicability to latent disease cases. The article also touches on the elimination of the discovery rule in cases where the statute of repose is applicable and constitutional concerns relating to the elimination of a plaintiff's cause of action before an injury is, or can be, discovered.
