It’s the holidays. A time when family and friends, and even neighbors, gather together.

And nothing brings neighbors closer together than class action residential construction defect litigation.

In Kohler Co. v. Superior Court, Case No. B288935 (November 14, 2018), the Second District Court of Appeal addressed whether neighbors can bring class action lawsuits under the Right to Repair Act. For those who are regular readers of the California Construction Law Blog you’re familiar with the Right to Repair Act codified at Civil Code sections 895 et seq.
