Design Professional Limitation of Liability Law Approved by Governor

by

The Design Professional Limitation of Liability Act, that we have been following and discussing here and here, outlined in the version of SB 286 that ultimately passed both the Senate and House has been approved by Governor Scott.  Governor Scott signed the act on April 25th.  The act creates § 558.0035, Florida Statute, and will take effect on July 1, 2013. It does not appear that this new statute will apply retroactively and will only apply to contracts entered into on or after July 1, 2013.
