Alabama Supreme Court Announces New Rule for Accrual of Breach of Repair Warranty Claim

In Brown v. General Motors, Case No. 1061660, the Alabama Supreme Court overruled Tittle v. Steel City Oldsmobile GMC Truck, Inc., 544 So.2d 883 (Ala. 1989) and held that a claim for breach of repair warranty accrues at the time a manufacturer breaches its contractual obligation to repair, not at the time of the tender of delivery of the good.
