In David v. Hett, 270 P.3d 1102 (Kan. 2011) (No.98,419), the Kansas Supreme Court addressed the economic loss doctrine for the first time.  The case came before it on the question of whether the economic loss rule barred tort claims by homeowners suing residential contractors for economic losses only.  The court held that it would not recognize the economic loss rule in the context of home construction suits, but did not state whether it would apply the economic loss doctrine in other contexts.
