Breach of Fiduciary Duty Claims and the Economic Loss Rule

Posted: March 5, 2012 Filed under: Commentary, Law-Related News

My article titled Ruminations on the Relationship Between the Economic Loss Rule and Claims for Breach of Fiduciary Duty is the cover article for the March 2012 issue of The Florida Bar Journal. The article can be found online HERE. Although the topic is admittedly esoteric, the legal issue is one of great practical significance to persons whose financial interests are subject to the control of another person in a position of trust. Florida law concerning the economic loss rule a/k/a the economic loss doctrine is unique and, as discussed in the article, not fully settled.
