(September 30, 2015, 4:22 PM EDT) -- ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A New Mexico Court of Appeals panel on Sept. 10 overturned a trial court judge’s decision to award summary judgment to an architectural firm accused of defectively designing a mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) wall after finding that a flow-down clause in the prime contract between the owner of the property and the general contractor did not limit the architectural firm’s liability (Centex/Worthgroup LLC v. Worthgroup Architects L.P., No. 32,331, N.M. App.; 2015 N.M. App. LEXIS 101).
