The Supreme Court’s ruling in United States v. Spearin,  also referred to as the Spearin doctrine, is a landmark construction decision. The Spearin doctrine provides that the Owner impliedly warrants the information, plans and specifications which an Owner provides to a General Contractor. If a Contractor is bound to build according to plans and specifications prepared by the Owner, the Contractor will not be responsible for the consequences of defects in the plans and specifications.
