Craftsman Builder's Supply v. Butler Manufacturing

In Craftsman Builder's Supply v. Butler Manufacturing, 1999 UT 18, 974 P.2d 1194, the Court upheld a statute of repose barring actions against builders after twelve years against an article I, section 11 attack. The Court held that given the clear social and economic evils identified by the legislature in enacting the statute of repose together with the remote chance of injury or damage after a period of twelve years, the statute was not an arbitrary or unreasonable means of eliminating the stated evils and was constitutional.
