Wisconsin Appeals Court Affirms Finding That Deck Was Defectively Built
(June 16, 2016, 11:34 AM EDT) -- WAUSAU, Wis. — A Wisconsin appellate court panel on June 14 upheld a trial court judge’s ruling awarding summary judgment to the owner of a duplex accused of failing to maintain a deck that collapsed, finding that the plaintiff’s claim was barred by the state’s 10-year statute of repose because the deck was defectively built in the 1980s (Andrew Heintz v. Paul Hanson, et al., No. 2015AP1790, Wis. App., Dist. 3; 2015 Wisc. App. LEXIS 357).
