FAA Proposes Commercial Drone Rule

The FAA has begun the rule making process to address the commercial use of unmanned aerial vehicles, otherwise known as drones. The proposed rule would allow commercial use of drones in a variety of situations, including real estate photography.


States Move to Limit Housing Defect Cases
Lawmakers in several states are moving to try to make construction-defect laws more stringent, which could make litigation more difficult for home owners who want to sue home builders over flaws. (Colorado’s Construction Defect Lawsuit bill, SB-177, has been introduced and assigned to the Senate Business, Labor & Technology Committee but has not been calendared for a hearing.)
