Homeowner's Case Against Architect Lacks Foundation

Obtained summary judgment dismissing a plaintiff's claims of professional negligence, breach of contract, unjust enrichment and fraud against an architect in the Superior Court of New Jersey.  In the complaint, the plaintiff homebuyer asserted that the architect breached his contract with the developer/seller and deviated from accepted standards of architectural practice in connection with his professional design services relating to the repair and renovation of a fire damaged home. In essence, the homebuyer alleged that the architect's plans and specifications for the project failed to comply with applicable building codes and did not provide sufficient information for the contractor to properly perform the construction of the renovation of the structure. After extensive briefing and argument, the court granted our motion for summary judgment and dismissed the complaint with prejudice on the basis that the plaintiff could not provide a prima facie case as to our client based upon the evidence produced during the course of discovery.
