ROBINSON HELICOPTER CO., INC. v. DANA CORP., B150963

The economic loss rule, precluding tort recovery where sale of a defective product has resulted in no property damage or bodily injury but only economic loss to the buyer, applies to cases where intentional fraud has been committed in the performance, as opposed to inducement, of a product sale contract, restricting recovery to contract damages.
