The year 2020 brought about interesting judicial opinions in construction law addressing licensing issues, contractual, and common-law indemnity, including the anti-indemnity statute, homeowner’s association rights, and the recovery of lost profits on incomplete work. It also addressed standard construction-law issues in unique contexts, such as construction liens and insurance coverage and exclusions. Though the year faced the COVID-19 pandemic, decisions addressing the unprecedented circumstances caused by the virus will likely come in future years. This Article surveys significant judicial, regulatory, and legislative developments in Georgia construction law during the period from June 1, 2020, through May 31, 2021.
