Cert. granted on whether subrogation waiver applies only to the “Work”

By Tim Gordon

Copper Mountain, Inc. v. Industrial Systems, Inc. (Colo. 2008)

Today, the Supreme Court of Colorado granted cert. on the following issue: Whether the court of appeals erred in ruling a waiver of subrogation provision in an American Institute of Architects ("AIA") form contract barred all of owner-plaintiff’s claims, thereby creating a conflict with another decision of the court of appeals, Town of Silverton v. Phoenix Heat Source System, Inc., 948 P.2d 9 (Colo. App. 1997), which held the waiver provision barred only claims for damages to the "Work" required to be insured by the owner under the contract.
