In reversing the trial court’s dismissal of the negligent misrepresentation claim by Fulton Bank against Barry L. Spevak and Downey Spevak & Associates, the Superior Court explained that Bilt-Rite’s applicability is not limited to factual scenarios involving only negligent misrepresentation claims against an architect or similar design professionals. The court stated:
We find the court applied a too narrow reading to Bilt-Rite in determining that the case only concerns disputes involving an architect/contractor scenario. Rather, we conclude Bilt-Rite can be applied to other factual scenarios where a party is providing professional information that is designed to be relied upon by a third party.
