Case Synopsis

The Court granted a petition for a writ of mandamus challenging a district court order granting real parties in interest’s motion for leave to amend their third- and fourth- party complaints to add a cause of action for negligent misrepresentation. The economic loss doctrine bars negligent misrepresentation claims against commercial construction design professionals where the recovery sought is solely for economic losses. Accordingly, the district court should have denied the motions to amend.
