Spearin Doctrine


Spearin Doctrine — a legal principle that holds that when a contractor follows the plans and specifications furnished by the owner, and those plans and specifications turn out to be defective or insufficient, the contractor is not liable to the owner for any loss or damage resulting from the defective plans and specifications. The courts in virtually all states have adopted this rule.
