Question : Brett worked as a machinist supervisor. Work done in the : 1126
Brett worked as a machinist supervisor. Work done in the shop allowed only 0.0001 of an inch tolerance in machine drive shafts for aircraft engines. He bought a micrometer telling the company the specifications needed in this work. A defect in the measuring instrument resulted in the loss of $200,000 in time and materials in the precision work supervised by Brett. Could Brett’s company recover its loss through an action against the seller? Why or why not?
