Product description

The AIA Legal Citator is the only case finder authorized by the AIA, and the only one that lists and digests key federal and state decisions that interpret the widely used AIA construction contracts and related documents. Further, this timesaving research tool is the only product that:

•  is keyed to standard AIA contracts by specific numbered article or paragraph
•  differentiates between various versions of the same standard contract
•  uses a case reference numbering system that lets you easily identify the jurisdiction and date of each decision
•  lists all of the contract provisions at issue in each digested case

The AIA Citator is divided into two main sections -- Document-to-Case Charts and Cases -- which enable an attorney to move swiftly from contract provisions to the cases that interpret them. The Document-to-Case Charts direct you to cases discussing a particular AIA document, by section. The Cases section offers summaries providing the background of each case and a discussion of the relevant AIA or similar type language involved. To speed your research, case digests are provided for all cases decided since 1974. The Document-to-Case Charts list three types of cases:

•  cases involving an AIA document or identical language
•  cases probably involving an AIA document provision or similar language
•  cases that are analogous and helpful

Together the Charts and Cases provide a case-finding tool unmatched by even the most sophisticated online service. The volume also includes a table of the summarized cases. The analysis of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Contract Documents addresses probably the most essential concern of construction law, the interrelationship between the parties to all major construction projects. The AIA Citator educates you as to how this interrelationship affects your clients, and ensures you are providing the most effective representation possible.

A Cases Supplement has been added to the publication to reduce the main volume's page count and make it more streamlined. The Cases Supplement contains relevant case citations dating back to 1886, plus case digests running from 1974 through 2004.

The 2023 edition ISBN is 9781663352545.
