SALEM, Ore. - The Oregon Court of Appeals on Dec. 18 upheld dismissal of a homeowner's complaint for water damage to his property, ruling that the state Construction Contractors Board was correct to rule that the plaintiff had failed to state a claim for relief for negligent or improper home inspection work (Duncan Hettle v. Construction Contractors Board, No. A142840, Ore. App.; 2013 Ore. App. LEXIS 1491).
